ATOMOS has introduced two new network-connected devices that make it easier for digital film and video productions of all sizes to capture, transcode, upload, and collaborate with anyone, anywhere in the world. The ATOMOS CONNECT is a network accessory specially designed to attach to the popular ATOMOS NINJA V and NINJA V+ production devices for monitoring and recording. The SHOGUN CONNECT is a brand-new all-in-one production device with all the connected technologies built in. The two new devices integrate seamlessly with Frame.io Camera to Cloud (C2C), to bring a wider range of professional digital cinema, mirrorless, and DSLR cameras to automatically share media for remote collaboration.
The ATOMOS devices capture high-quality content in your choice of professional formats. When capturing to Frame.io you can choose to simultaneously record high-quality “hero” and bandwidth-efficient “proxy” files with matching filenames and timecode. When recording in this way you create great-looking HEVC (H.265) ‘proxy’ clips alongside full-resolution ‘hero’ clips in either Avid DNxHR/HD, Apple ProRes, and on the NINJA V+ and SHOGUN CONNECT, ProRes RAW. Each proxy can be automatically uploaded to Frame.io using a new ATOMOS progressive file transfer technology, which begins transferring the file even as it’s being captured. This workflow is simply the fastest way for remote teams to publish clips directly to Frame.io without the typical delay of waiting for camera cards to ingest, hard drives to ship, or even for the camera to stop recording.
“This new partnership with Frame.io represents our commitment to provide customers with the most advanced and comprehensive production workflow options. It was clear to us that ATOMOS could expand Frame.io Camera to Cloud and reach many more filmmakers. The SHOGUN CONNECT represents our first all-in-one, connected device and indicates how we see our future evolving. And we’re thrilled to provide the ATOMOS CONNECT for NINJA V/V+ for our existing customers to further expand their workflow and create collaborative opportunities around the world.”
