Atomos Firmware Enables Camera to Cloud Workflows in Connect Devices

Atomos has just released a firmware update that supports camera to cloud workflows through with its ATOMOS Connect and Shogun Connect devices.

Through the connection, filmmakers using digital cinema cameras, mirrorless camera rigs, and DSLR camera setups will be able to wirelessly transfer data files to the cloud, reducing time and money spent in post-production.

The camera to cloud workflow provides a tracked, securely backed-up, and delivery ecosystem for filmmakers to wirelessly transfer their 8K Raw image and video files in real-time, immediately after the word “cut” is called by the director.

The media is picked up from the ATOMOS Connect and Shogun Connect devices, encrypted, and securely passed onto the cloud for direct transfer to the production cloud network for viewing, approval, and editing.

The firmware update enables this connection between supported cameras and the Connect devices, and Atomos envisions in the future that high-speed internet connections will be ubiquitous to the point that removable media will either be taken out entirely from the equations, or relegated to an archival function.

The devices are paired to using ATOMOS Cloud Studio and linked to a account.

Once linked, media can be uploaded immediately using bandwidth-efficient, high-resolution H.265 HEVC proxy files to the network while simultaneously recording the full-resolution “hero” clips in either DNxHR/HD Raw or Apple ProRes.

Files are then transferred to using standard 4GLTE, 5G, or WiFi-connected networks, and NLE editing platforms including Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve will have their editing bins automatically populated throughout the day. Every file is instantly available to view with team members.

“The partnership with, alongside the CONNECT range of products, and the launch of ATOMOS Cloud Studio (is) a further opportunity to deliver cutting-edge workflows that will allow our customers to collaborate in new ways, work more efficiently, and ultimately advance their craft,” said Trevor Elbourne, CEO ATOMOS.

According to Atomos and, there is simply no faster way for remote teams to get their clips directly to those who need them, and the term dailies is now largely an anachronism since the media files can be prepped and viewed in minutes, rather than hours or even days anywhere in the world.
