Atomos has just announced that they have partnered with Sony for their newly released Shogun recorder, making it the “only 4K HDMI recording solution that can take full advantage of the new A7S’s full 35mm ultra-sensitive 12 mega pixel video sensor, clean HDMI out, 120 fps HD and custom HDMI timecode and start/stop trigger.”
“We are very proud to give 4K recording capability to the Sony A7S with our brand new 4K ProRes Shogun”, ways CEO Jeromy Young.
The partnership of the clean HDMI out from the A7S and the Shogun’s 4K ProRes recording makes 4K an affordable possibility.
The Atomos Shogun will be available Q3 for under $2000. The Sony A7S availability and price are still undisclosed.

4K Killer Combination from Atomos and Sony
Atomos 7” Shogun and Sony A7S Camera 4K Recording Solution Shown for the First Time at NAB 2014
Melbourne, Australia – April 6th, 2014: Atomos, the creator of the award-winning Apple ProRes Ninja and Samurai camera-mounted recorders, and the pocket-sized Connect converters, will show the brand new 4K Shogun 7” IPS monitor/recorder alongside the new Sony A7S at NAB 2014. The Shogun is currently the only 4K HDMI recording solution that can take full advantage of the new A7S’s full 35mm ultra-sensitive 12 mega pixel video sensor, clean HDMI out, 120 fps HD and custom HDMI timecode and start/stop trigger.
“Finally the camera the world has been waiting for, Sony has pulled out all the stops to deliver the world’s first Full Frame Video sensor in a camera for the masses.” said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos. “We are very proud to give 4K recording capability to the Sony A7S with our brand new 4K ProRes Shogun which sports a 1920×1200 7” killer monitor and unparalleled affordable 4K recording.”
The Atomos Shogun is the world’s first 4K HDMI and 12G SDI monitor recorder and deck. With the combination of Sony’s clean HDMI out direct to 4K ProRes onto single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs – 4K is now a mainstream reality at the equivalent of $40 per hour for storage media. With Sony’s pedigree and reliability coupled with Atomos’ revolutionary feature set and price points, this combination at under $5K is the most compelling video solution on the market today.
Like the Samurai and Ninja Blade, Shogun allows the recording of pristine, 422 10-bit images straight from the camera sensor captured using 4K/HD ProRes, Uncompressed RAW Cinema DNG or Avid DNxHD codecs. Waveform and monitor assist tools such as luma parade, vectorscope and tri-level focus peaking offer a very comprehensive test and shot setup tool kit.
You can see the Shogun and Sony A7S on both the Atomos and Sony booths throughout NAB (7 April, Las Vegas Convention Center, booth number C9532, www.nabshow.com). There is also a special Sony/Atomos launch presentation and Q&A on day one of the show to be held at 12.30pm on the Atomos booth C9532.
