Atomos has two special devices for Frame.ios Camera to Cloud (C2C ) real-time workflow from camera to cut is presented. The new Atomos Connect adds C2C functionality to the Atomos Ninja V/V+ recorder/monitor combos, while Shogun Connect is an independent all-in-one production device based on it of Shogun 7, in which the corresponding technologies are already integrated is.
The two new releases enable digital film and video production companies to record content, transcode it, upload it to the cloud and then edit these videos anywhere in the world in one go. They integrate seamlessly with the Frame.io Camera to Cloud, enabling the use of professional digital cinema, mirrorless and DSLR cameras in C2C remote workflows.
Proxy and hero videos for Camera to Cloud workflow
For camera recordings using Ninja V/V+ and Atomos Connect or Shogun Connect according to Frame.io, you can choose whether high-quality "Hero" and bandwidth-efficient proxy files with suitable file names and timecode should be recorded at the same time. The proxy clips are recorded in HEVC (H.265) and the "hero" clips are recorded in full resolution, either in Avid DNxHR/HD, ProRes or - on the Ninja V+ and Shogun Connect - in ProRes RAW.
Each proxy can be automatically uploaded to Frame.io using new Atomos Progressive File Transfer technology, which begins transferring the file as it is being captured. This avoids workflow delays caused by waiting for camera memory cards to be read, hard drives to be delivered, or for the camera to finish shooting before uploading - allowing the remote team to access footage while shooting.

Shogun Connect is a new addition to the Shogun range of monitor/recorder/switcher combos. It offers the monitoring tools and recording options of the previous Shogun 7 and extends its capabilities of HDR monitoring and RAW recording to network and cloud workflows. The improvements compared to the previous model include a significantly brighter 7" screen with 2,000 nits and a narrower bezel, which according to Atomos should ensure more comfortable operation.
The Shogun Connect features an extensive range of interfaces, including a loop-through 12G SDI IN and OUT to support SDI RAW, Atomos SYNC timecode technology for seamless camera synchronization, multiple power options for studio or location shooting, and Wi-Fi 6, networking -Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth LE and USB C for flexible all-round connections. The Shogun Connect will be available from Atomos dealers worldwide from the middle of the year at a price of 1,299 euros.
The Atomos C2C Workflow
Once an Atomos Connect or Shogun Connect is paired with a Frame.io project, a C2C project can be started. Any recording made with it is then immediately available online to view in Frame.io or to download and edit in an integrated video application such as Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro or DaVinci Resolve. The new C2C Atomos devices enable every production to establish a decentralized, distributed workflow and to work together from anywhere in the world via Frame.io. A Frame.io subscription is required to use the C2C functions.
Frame.io Camera to Cloud
The Frame.io Camera to Cloud initiative was launched in February 2021, to enable film production companies to transfer their footage immediately from the set to the post-production teams. Files are transferred to Frame.io over standard 4G LTE, 5G, or Wi-Fi networks.
