Atomos Shogun 7 is a precision HDR monitor-recorder-switcher designed for the film and video professional. It can be used as either a stand-alone field monitor, recorder and switcher for event, documentary and live in-the-field storytelling; or as a tool for large-scale on-set episodic TV, film and cinema productions where multiple crew members such as focus pullers, grips and cinematographers require a consistent visual reference across the field monitor ecosystem. Shogun 7's portable size lets you monitor, analyze and tag while on set; and check how your content will look in your audience’s home via real-time Dolby Vision output. With Shogun 7 you’re not locked into any format, camera manufacturer or pipeline. It is a completely flexible master recording and production station.
A new era of affordable, portable and intuitive multi-camera production has begun. Simply touch the Shogun 7 screen to switch between 4 live HD SDI video streams up to 1080p60. Send the resulting switched program output to SDI to HDMI for live streaming or transmission. Record all four inputs as separate ISOs, plus the program output as a fifth stream. This is all done asynchronous, without the need for genlocked sources.
All switches are recorded as metadata with a choice of transition type. Once you’ve finished capturing your streams, simply import the resulting Apple Final Cut . xml file along with your ISOs into your NLE and the timeline automatically populates with all the transitions in place.
Audio is also taken care of, every ISO can record the 2-channel embedded digital audio from each source, as well as the mixed analog stereo channels coming into the Shogun 7 (via optional XLR breakout cable). The program stream always records the analog feed and switches between audio inputs for the on-camera audio to match the switched feed
