ATOMOS is exhibiting a full-line of its outdoor video recorder products at “Inter BEE 2014” for 3 days from November 19 to 21 at Makuhari Messe (Makuhari City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan). Inter BEE is an annual professional technology conference and exhibition of audio, video and the communications industry. At their booth (#2117) ATOMOS is showing their full-line of outdoor video recorder products. They are also going to debut a product version of “ATOMOS SHOGUN”, a 4K video recorder with a built-in 7-inch monitor that was first announced at the NAB 2014.
ATOMOS Japan president, Mr. Masazumi Kainou, said, “This year ATOMOS is using a large booth to enhance our space for visitors to try all of our product lineups.” ATOMOS products are attached to the latest cameras from Sony, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, RED, ARRI, and Ikegami and placed around a stage in the booth in order for visitors to have hands-on experiences with their products.
Appearing on the stage in seminar-like settings, a prominent content creator that uses ATOMOS recorders has been invited. At this "ATOMOS Work Flow Seminar" he is going to show his work, present his recorder equipment, discuss his post production workflows and share his impression of the ATOMOS products. "We will make this seminar content valuable to video production professionals," said Mr. Kano
Standing out among the exhibitor’s products is “SHOGUN” a 4K video recorder with a built-in 7-inch monitor that was first announced at the NAB show in April this year. This new product is expected to be released and shipped November this year. The company has already received quite a large number of pre-orders in Japan.
Mr. Kano spoke about the current status of the SHOGUN recorder development. He said, “At the IBC announcement the prototype product was just able to display video but now a user interface is maturing and approaching the final product quality. The development is completing for the product launch in November this year so that around the time when Inter BEE 2014 opens, SHOGUN should be on the market.”
Selection of the input signals, recording formats, video output ports (HDMI or SDI) and switching recording trigger modes (manual or synchronized to a camera) are all controlled by a touch panel user interface on the LCD video screen. A built-in recording media is a 2.5-inch SDD, and it is capable of recording 4K video onto it. Also, included in the package is a RAID carrier that has a built-in RAID controller and can hold two hard disk drives. This RAID controller can double the access speed of the HDDs to make it possible to record 4K video data onto two HDDs. The company also has a plan to provide a CFast card adaptor as an option.
The price of SHOGUN is 235,000 yen excluding a sales tax.
A power station product is being also released at the same time. It can connect two battery packs and a supply power through its USB connectors. The maximum output current is rated at 5A. It can be charged by a DC power supply and provides 3 power outputs. Included in the package are power connection adaptors for Sony, Canon, Nikon and Panasonic cameras to make it possible to power them. This power station is designed to draw power from one battery at a time. So, when first battery empties and switches to the second battery, the first empty battery can be swapped with another charged battery in order to supply power without interruption. The price is 37,500 yen including sales tax.
