New Atomos Shogun Inferno with 4K/60p, 4K Raw, Quad-SDI and 10bit HDR Monitoring

The Shogun Inferno is the latest flagship 7-inch 4K Raw recorder from Atomos featuring 10bit HDR Monitoring, 1500 nits brightness, and Raw to Raw CDNG recording up to 4K DCI/UHD 30p or 2K/HD 120p in addition to 4K/60p in ProRes/Avid DNxHR or HD up to 240fps.

“The best technology booms are the ones that truly WOW long standing professionals. HDR on the Atomos products leaves even the most experienced video professional excited like a kid in a candy store – never before have you actually been able to monitor and shoot what you are actually seeing” said Jeromy Young CEO and Co-founder. “Just as we opened up the changeover from MPEG to ProRes and the upgrade from HD to 4K, we’re focused on ensuring the exciting breakthrough that is HDR easily becomes part of every filmmaker’s arsenal. To do this all at 4K 60p is a real revolution”.

The Atomos Shogun Inferno features all the premium monitoring features previously announced on the Shogun Flame including 10 stops of dynamic range thanks to the new AtomHDR engine and 10-bit processing for smooth colour transitions and no banding.

Monitoring LOG is difficult when done in Rec.709, which inherently can display only 5-6 stops of latitute, thus making the new 10bit monitoring in the Flame and the new Shogun Inferno an invaluable tool in the arsenal of any professional or enthusiast video shooter. Atomos Shogun Inferno HDR 4K Raw recorder 7-inch monitor
