After nearly a year of preparation and releasing a handful of cloud-based camera accessories, Atomos has announced that Atomos Cloud Studio has emerged from testing and gone live for camera-to-cloud and live streaming applications.
The new cloud-based service offers capture to the cloud, streaming, and live video production through Atomos CONNECT modules.
The new cloud-based suite of applications enables users to connect their Ninja V and Ninja V+ and Shogun external monitor recorders to the cloud by providing a gateway through the CONNECT wireless devices which are married to either a WiFi or cellular connection.
The devices include the Atomos CONNECT, Atomos Shogun CONNECT, and the Atomos Zato CONNECT modular devices.
“We see it as augmenting video production,” said Trevor Elbourne, CEO of Atomos.
“Filmmakers and video content producers everywhere can access Atomos Cloud Studio to collaborate and share their work faster than ever before, create a polished live production, or stream content to the platform of their choice directly from the camera.”
The devices can upload original camera files plus lower resolution proxy files up to 1080p to the cloud, rendering files saved on media cards and hard drives as archival backups.
The result is that post-production workflows can begin while principal photography occurs concurrently.
The camera-to-cloud service operates through integration with Frame.io and provides online review and collaboration in real-time once the director yells cut.
For a low monthly subscription, users can connect up to five mobile devices, all capable of uploading OCFs using Atomos’ secure and proprietary file transfer technology, which can also manage live production and on-air broadcast streaming.
“You choose a plan that best suits your needs, but if you find that you need more live production hours you can easily scale up or, for quieter periods, scale down,” added Elbourne. “It’s cost-effective and completely flexible.”
Atomos has integrated their patented AirGlu sync technology, which enables multiple Atomos devices and compatible cameras to sync and lock with a single time code for frame-accurate timelines that can be easily uploaded for post-production on any production level.
Though currently still in BETA, the live streaming options are available for anyone interested in one of three types of live production.
The basic show tier is for live webcasts with up to four locked-off camera setups streaming to a single platform with multi-camera switching.
Then there’s the Standard tier, which offers more audio options and includes intercom talkback to camera operators, picture-in-picture, and transitions.
Lastly, the Advanced tier provides the complete range of Atomos Live Production features including a 4-input video switcher, sound mixer, video transition effects, still graphics, animated graphics, tally light operation, and talkback.
The feeds can then connect live to a variety of social media platforms, as well as Atomos’ Monitor App for AppleTV.
Atomos Cloud is available for use with a wide range of devices including cinema cameras, mirrorless or DSLR cameras, and Atomos external monitor recorders via USB connection.
The service is available now through Atomos.com.
