Recording Features
Use each channel independently to record edit friendly 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes/DNxHR or operate the dual channels together for more advanced recording functionality

  • Continuous Recording: Automatically switches channels when the disk is full without any down time in recording
  • Multi Codec: Flexible dual codec recording to capture a high bit rate master/lower bit rate proxy or ProRes/DNxHR versions of the same footage
  • Multi Resolution: Multi resolution option for capturing a 4K Master/HD deliverable or even dailies with burnt in LUTs

Control Features
Direct touchscreen access combined with advanced remote control functionality.

  • Touchscreen with transport controls: Operate each channel via the independent touch screens to adjust record, monitor, playback and edit functions
  • LTC / Genlock: LTC input for multi cam scenarios during recording and Genlock available for play back
  • RS422 / AMP over ethernet: Independent RS422 machine control inputs for each channel and ethernet connection for control via AMP protocol

The calibrated dual 7” monitors provide accurate REC.709 viewing of content as well as a host of tools for image analysis.
Wave form monitoring on both channels using Luma Parade, RGB Parade & Vector Scope with Vector Zoom.

Focus Peaking
The calibrated dual 7” monitors provide accurate REC.709 viewing of content as well as a host of tools for image analysis.
Focus peaking in 3 modes along with 1:1 and 2:1 zoom to punch in for critical focus.

Play & Review
Play & review the 4K and HD content on screen or out to a larger monitor in the same visually lossless quality as the input.

Mark clips while you record or review with a choice of 10 tags that can be imported into Apple, Avid or Adobe NLEs.

Dock the caddy and edit immediately with scene/shot/take naming criteria allowing for storage management systems to identify clips.

Works with ALL Cameras
Shogun Studio, like all Atomos products, records direct from the sensor of any feed with a clean output ie no menu information on the video output.

4K Recording at HD Prices
Harness the power of 2.5" computer storage media, making 4K the same cost as affordable HD today. Record 3 hours of 4K ProRes 422 HQ @ 25 fps on a 1TB SSD, or 10 hours in HD. Atomos have teamed up with the major media brands to ensure availability and reliability you know and trust.


Shogun Studio solves many of the problems faced by multi camera events with long run times. Our Master Caddy delivers affordable & reliable media while features like time lapse, pre-roll cache & 4K/HD simultaneous recording make this the perfect choice for Event professionals. Our open approach with media means you record up to 2.5 hours of 4K 30p or 5 hours of 1080p60 onto a single 1TB SSD, keeping media costs low. You can also link the two channels to utilize continuous recording. The Shogun Studio has the ability to then monitor the input, view waveforms/scopes, setup complex time lapses and simultaneously record a proxy - under pinned with the safe guard of pre-roll cache recording (8 sec for HD / 2 sec for 4K) to ensure you never miss the action. You can even record presentations from PC, MAC and Mobile devices.

Mobile Production
With rack space at a premium and resolution on the rise, Mobile Production professionals will welcome the ability to record, monitor, test, measure, convert and play out from a single 3RU device. Dual codec, dual resolution recording maximises the flexibility in mobile situations. Combine the ability to record 4K resolution ISO feeds with a hardware down converted HD proxy version, record ProRes on one channel and DNxHR on the other or even playback and convert from one codec/resolution combination to another.

Connecting to infrastructure is simple as well with built-in HDMI and SDI conversion that is bi-directional. Shogun Studio is ready for the 4K future, but 4K acquisition doesn’t have to mean 4K delivery – when 4K can be achieved on a HD budget and you have the capability to downscale or record codec to suit you have the perfect product now and for the future in the tight space of Mobile production.

Pro AV
With play list functionality & control via RS422, Ethernet or on screen, the Shogun Studio is an affordable 4K & HD play out engine for video walls, signage and projection.

Additionally, with dual channel play out capability over HDMI or 1.5/3/6/12G SDI, Genlock and 4K to HD down scaling the Shogun Studio can be used to provide synchronized 4K, 2K and HD simultaneous play out to high resolution projector or signage systems.

*Create playlists from favourites and/or selected clips


In security applications a wide angle lens on a 4K camera can mean a single camera replaces the equivalent of 4 x HD cameras. The Studio Shogun, with its long record time, time lapse and monitor zoom capability makes it the perfect weapon for 4K security applications.

In ProRes LT at 25 FPS the Shogun Studio can record 6 hours of Ultra High Definition 4K per channel, this not only provides superior resolution but also an increase in the number of frames captured per second providing a more finite approach to high resolution security recording. In applications where the additional frames aren’t important, the timelapse functionality can be set up to record specific frames at specific points over a specified duration. All of this can be reviewed on the dual 7.1” Full HD monitors and easily zoomed in for closer inspection of areas of interest.

On Set / DIT
Shogun Studio in the rack of a DIT cart arms the set with the fastest path from acquisition to editing by recording direct to 10-bit 422 ProRes or DNxHR, The 3RU chassis provides dual record channels and class leading monitoring with test measurement for the highest quality 4K/2K/HD recording and setup.

For colour analysis, the RGB and Vector scopes provide real time feedback and can be overlaid in several positions on the colour accurate 7.1” 323ppi Full HD monitor. You can double check focus pulls with 2:1 zoom, focus peaking with edges only view and 8 LUT slots on board plus an infinite number on disk.

These decisions can be made with the confidence you are using a 100% sRGB factory calibrated monitor that can be calibrated in the rack using the optional Spyder unit. Outside of monitoring, DIT’s can start the editing process on set with favourite and reject tagging to start the formation of play lists and edit decisions for XML export.
