As expected, Atomos made an official announcement supporting the 4K and 5.7K Raw output from the Panasonic AU-EVA1 compact Super35 cine camera. Further details on exactly how the 5.7K raw recording will happen will be released during NAB 2018 according to the Atomos press release. The 5.7K raw will be up to 30p and happen via the 6G-SDI output of the camera into either the Shogun Inferno or the Atomos Sumo19 HDR monitor/recorder.
In an upcoming free firmware update, Panasonic EVA1 users can record 4K up to 60fps from the Raw output in production ready Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHR, or CinemaDNG RAW up to 2K/120p or 4K/30p to the Shogun Inferno/Sumo 19.
The resulting frames are super clean, detailed and capable of withstanding heavy grading. The Shogun Inferno also supercharges the EVA1’s slow motion performance. It can record the RAW output at up to 240fps in 2K/HD, direct to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR. Perfect for sports, wildlife and a wide range of other uses.
All these features will come in an AtomOS upgrade for the Shogun Inferno and Sumo19 to be released at NAB April 2018.
“Panasonic and Atomos have combined to deliver an astonishing set of features for end-to-end RAW production – 5.7K, 4K DCI/24-60p, 2K DCI/240fps in 10-bit V-Log recorded on our Shogun Inferno or Sumo 19. This is the best Raw solution for the price point on the market today,” said Atomos CEO Jeromy Young.
Atomos also published a few behind the scenes videos of 360’s latest music video – showcasing the awesome combo of the Atomos Shogun Inferno and the Panasonic EVA1 which now enables RAW output.
In addition to Raw and ProRes/DNx recording functionality, the Shogun Inferno also offers state-of-the-art monitoring for both HDR and SDR recording with its 7” 1500nit high brightness panel with the Sumo19 at 19” and 1200nits.
Users can also load and store LUTs directly into Shogun and Sumo for complete creative control, production to post. With HDMI or SDI users can output their footage in 4K PQ (HDR 10) or HLG HDR direct to a compatible television or monitor for instant preview using our AtomHDR engine – great for on-set use or client review.
