Unbelievable HDR, real-time Dolby Vision monitoring
Atomos Shogun 7 is a precision HDR monitor-recorder-switcher designed for the film & video professional. It can be used as either a stand-alone field monitor, recorder & switcher for event, documentary & live in-the-field storytelling; or as a tool for large-scale on-set episodic TV, film & cinema productions where multiple crew members such as focus pullers, grips & cinematographers require a consistent visual reference across the field monitor ecosystem. Shogun 7's portable size lets you monitor, analyse & tag while on set; & check how your content will look in your audience’s home via real-time Dolby Vision output. With Shogun 7 you’re not locked into any format, camera manufacturer or pipeline. It is a completely flexible master recording & production station.
Live multi-cam has never been more portable, perfect for live streaming!
Monitor, record & switch between 4 live HD SDI video streams & one program stream for flexible in-the-field directing. Enjoy the freedom of asynchronous switching & gen lock in & out to connect to existing infrastructure. Shogun 7 offers up to HDp60 SDI ISOs x 4 recording. Once you’ve finished capturing your streams, just import the Atomos xml file into your NLE & your timeline populates with all your edits in place. Audio is also taken care of, with each ISO & program record, we insert the mixed analogue stereo channels & embed 2 channels of digital audio in each recorded stream. The program stream always records the analogue feed & switches between audio inputs for the on-camera audio to match the switched feed.
Single-camera storytelling in 4K, or 2K slow-mo
Capturing in 4K is now becoming a requirement for content streaming providers. With the latest HDMI 2.0v you can capture up to 4Kp60 on any available camera, or via Quad Link, Dual Link or Single Link. If slow motion capture is important to your production, Shogun 7 lets you capture 2K up to 240p. You can tag on-the-fly while recording for direct-to-edit look up in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere* & Avid Media Composer.

Atomos technology brings the real world to your monitor
Introducing Dynamic AtomHDR technology, designed by Atomos to yield a 1,000,000:1 screen contrast ratio. With Shogun 7 blacks & colours are rich & deep. Images appear to ‘pop’ with added dimensionality & detail. The incredible Atomos screen uses a unique combination of advanced LED & LCD technologies which together offer deeper, better blacks than rival OLED screens, but with the much higher brightness & vivid colour performance of top-end LCDs. Objects appear more lifelike than ever, with complex textures & gradations beautifully revealed. In short, Shogun 7 offers the most detailed window into your image, truly changing the way you create visually.
The best HDR just got better
A new 360 zone backlight is combined with our new screen technology & controlled by the Dynamic AtomHDR engine to show millions of shades of brightness & colour, yielding jaw-dropping results. It allows Shogun 7 to display 15+ stops of real dynamic range on-screen. The panel is also incredibly accurate, with ultra-wide colour & 105% of DCI-P3 covered. For the first time you can enjoy on-screen the same dynamic range, palette of colours & shades that your camera sensor sees.
Record RAW, deliver accurate Dolby Vision HDR
The challenge with HDR production is maintaining the creative intent of the production at the time of shooting vs the finished product that is viewed on devices & TVs. Atomos & Dolby have teamed up to give you Dolby Vision live HDMI out, in real-time, from any SDI or HDMI HDR camera. All courtesy of AtomOS 10.
Simply connect your Dolby Vision capable TV or monitor to your Shogun 7 or Ninja V & magically, automatically, the AtomOS analyses the image, queries the TV, & applies the right colour & brightness profiles for the maximum HDR image on the display or TV. This ensures the HDR image always looks – as it was creatively intended by the creator. This is a valuable on-set reference check for the creative director & client.
This function is also available in playback & playout from RAW & Log recorded ProRes RAW, ProRes & DNx rushes for instant time-saving, on-set & in-studio review. Utilise playback functions like slow motion, & insert edit & in & out points to speed up playlist compilation.
