Record multiple formats

The Shogun Studio 2 records either two channels of 4Kp60, or up to eight HDp60 sources in industry standard Apple ProRes, ProRes RAW and AVID DNx codecs. Free your workflow from the constraints of highly compressed GOP based codecs and their associated artifacts. Replace them with clean images captured direct from the sensors of your camera channels using modern Intra-frame codecs.

Playback and edit

Review or play out your footage directly on the Shogun Studio 2 using the innovative touchscreen controls. Playback and play out up to 4Kp60 video, or 2K/HD high frame rate footage slowed down in the unit itself. Playlists can be created from clips either recorded on an Atomos recorder, or from your edit system in a supported codec, resolution and framerate.

Advanced record modes

It also offers Multi Camera ISO recording and Switching of up to 8 SDI inputs from cameras at up to 1080 p60. Each bank of 4 inputs also benefits from a switched output allowing you to have two video switched.

Class leading screen technology

The dual 7” screens of the Shogun Studio 2 have advanced dynamic zoned backlighting for deeper blacks and brighter whites, while retaining every detail in the highlights. See what the camera channel is capturing with unparalleled precision and use the advanced HDR tools for Log or RAW to ensure perfect exposure, colour and white balance.

Shogun Studio 2 Settings

Shogun Studio 2 has a host of tools for image analysis:

Wave Form Monitors with Luma, RGB parade and Vectorscope with zoom.

Focus peaking, zebra and false color that allow for further image QC checks to be remotely monitored from a distance.

1:1 and 2:1 magnification allows for operators to punch in to check shots for focus, exposure and which is perfect when used in combination with a remote camera control unit.

VU meters for audio monitoring of up to 12 channels of embedded audio and the ability to monitor individual tracks and select which to record.

The ProRes RAW Advantage

Creators are granted complete creative control of their video images in post-production as ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers incredible latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail – making ProRes RAW ideal for HDR workflows.

In addition to their groundbreaking combination of flexibility and performance, Apple ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW files – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW files can easily be edited on most modern Apple Mac systems. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Final Cut Pro X along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight, and Grass Valley Edius. Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer are also set to support ProRes RAW in 2020.

Endless features and applications

10RU worth or functionality in a 3RU box

In addition to the core recording and monitoring functions the Shogun Studio 2 packs a raft of additional features that make it incredibly versatile toolbox.

Managed color pipeline

Shogun Studio 2 manages your color in every way. It supports Log inputs from major camera vendors, converting it to Rec.709 and providing users the option to load their own 3D LUTs for immediate preview and transform.

Metadata tagging, Cut Edits & EDL XML

Atomos improve the speed of your end-to-end workflow, allowing for fast turn around and ingest into Media Asset Management systems. Make edit decisions on the fly by touching the screen and selecting from one of 10 tags. You can start to favorite or reject clips while you record, then review, cut and tag in playback mode.
