Atomos will be showing its new Ninja Star and 4K Shogun at Cine Gear 2014, June 6-7, at Paramount in Hollywood.
“Our new 4K Shogun and Ninja Star won five show awards at NAB last month and we’re excited to get first-hand feedback from Cine Gear visitors,” said Heather Williams, vice president of sales, Atomos Americas. “By listening to the camera guys and editors directly, we’re able to make recorder developments that really make a difference to their day-to-day work.”
The Ninja Star is a small HDMI recorder with flexible mounting options, allowing DPs to mount it to just about any POV setup and offer edit-ready format recording with ProRes. The Ninja Star measures 3.5″ wide, 2.3″ tall and 0.8″ deep and weighs 3.5 oz.
The Atomos Shogun is a 12G SDI and 4K HDMI I/O monitor/recorder/deck, featuring a 1920×1200 SuperAtom IPS 7″ touchscreen with 325 PPI, 179-degree viewing and 400nit brightness and multi-frequency (48/50/60Hz) operation, depending on video input, giving it smooth monitoring and playback.
The Shogun utilizes both 4K and HD output from HDMI cameras such as the latest Sony A7S, the Panasonic GH4 and 4K SDI Canon C500. It can record 24, 25 or 30p from the camera and up to 120fps regular HD if the camera is capable. It also has genlock in for synced playout and features optional Wifi for remote control from iOS or Android devices. Improved audio handling with the included Lemo breakout cable for XLR audio gives balanced audio, mic and phantom power.
Like the Samurai and Ninja Blade, Shogun allows users to set up the shot with waveform and monitor assist tools and record 4:2:2 10-bit images straight from the camera sensor directly to single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs, captured using 4K/HD ProRes, uncompressed RAW Cinema DNG or Avid DNxHD codecs.
