Just a few hours after Panasonic unveiled more details regarding their latest cinema camera the AU-EVA1, Atomos announced that they will be supporting the 5.7K RAW recording output once the flagship camera becomes available. Users will be able to output the Raw feed over 6G SDI to the Shogun Inferno thus being able to record directly to Apple ProRes or DNxHR.
Atomos will also support 4K Raw recording as well as 2K 240fps Raw. Considering that the Shogun Inferno already offers an affordable RAW recording workflow for the Panasonic Varicam 35 and LT cameras, it’s not a big surprise that the company is going to support the AU-EVA1 as well.
What’s more, the Shogun Inferno and Ninja Inferno will bring practical HDR monitoring and tools to the AU-EVA1, along with the full range of Atomos exposure and focus assist tools including waveform, vectorscope and the ability to preview and record with LUTs.
The company is also offering support for the latest addition to the Cinema EOS lineup – the EOS C200. Using any of the current Atomos 4K HDMI or SDI monitor recorders, seasoned professionals will be able to get a broadcast-friendly 10-bit 4:2:2 HD recording direct from the camera into Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD. According to Atomos, with the Flame and Inferno series users can also record 4K direct to ProRes in 4K 4:2:2 over HDMI (up to 30fps), although the camera limits the output to 8-bit.
At Cine Gear Expo 2017, the company is also showing off working prototypes of the upcoming Atomos Sumo production monitor recorder. Just as a quick reminder, the 19-inch 1200nit high brightness display offers on-set HDR monitoring with an impressive set of HDR tools including Log to HDR and PQ/HLG live conversion and playout.
It also has the full range of Atomos exposure and focus assist tools and LUT capabilities and comes equipped with the latest dual 12G SDI inputs. Additionally, the monitor can record 4K from most RAW-output-capable cinema cameras, as well as a wide range of 4K, UHD, 2K and HD video signals. The Atomos Sumo will also be able to live switch between four separate HD inputs and record ISOs for each.
Currently, you can take advantage of the recent price drop for the Atomos Flame and Inferno series monitor recorders that start at $795 for the HDMI-only Ninja Flame and goes up to $1,295 for the Shogun Inferno with quad SDI input.
