After the Sumo 19 the HDR Monitor/Recorder/Switcher Shogun 7 now also gets new, especially for multicam recordings useful functions with a free firmware update. Now up to five 1080p60 streams can be recorded simultaneously either as Apple ProRes or Avid DNx (with up to 60 fps) in the form of four different ISOs and the program stream, which are all written to the same SSD drive without the need to genlock the corresponding cameras, which was the case before the update.
Atomos Shogun 7
You can switch between the channels in real time at the touch of a button and record the resulting video on the separate fifth channel, and either explain it in the glossary via HDMIHDMI or output HD-SDI. Each switching operation is also recorded as a metadata cut/edit point in a parallel recorded XML file on the hard disk.
The ISOs, including the edits, can then be imported directly into the timeline of the respective editing program, where they can be easily fine-tuned or reworked. The touch screen can be configured to react differently to single and double tips, recording either a hard cut or a fade into the XML file. This tells the NLE what type of aperture to use.
The AtomOS 10.4 firmware update for Shogun 7 can now be downloaded free of charge from Atomos.
