Atomos Shogun & Ninja Star

DVi’s Craig Chartier interviews Atomos CEO and founder Jeromy Young about the new Shogun and Ninja Star external field recorders.

Here are the product descriptions mentioned in this interview:

The new wave of 4K cameras from Japan are arming the Pro Video world with amazing sensors at affordable price points, but falling short when it comes to Recording & Monitoring capability. The Atomos Shogun completes the solution for professionals, with a class leading 7″ high resolution monitor, Balanced XLR audio, HDMI & SDI connectivity, Recording direct to 422 10-bit ProRes and all to high capacity, affordable and open market SSD’s.

The Ninja Star is the world’s smallest, lightest Apple ProRes recorder (130g/4.6oz). Small enough to fit in your pocket and light enough to hang from a quad-copter – the Ninja Star is the go-anywhere recorder. Take your consumer camera to a truly Pro recording device. Avoid the internal MPEG compression & go from sub 30Mbps MPEG to 220Mbps ready to edit 10-bit 422 Apple ProRes HQ.
