HDR Inferno blazes trail for 4K 60p10 September 2016
The Shogun Inferno is Atomos’ new flagship monitor/recorder that can record 4K and UHD at up to 60p over Quad-SDI, as well as 240p HD. It also displays high dynamic range output on its 7.1-inch 10-bit, 1500 Nit 1920×1200 IPS display.
It records to Apple’s ProRes or Avid’s DNxHR and DNxHD formats, as well as Raw to Cinema DNG (only for certain Canon, Panasonic and Sony cameras initially – and not at the higher frame rates). Users can apply a custom look to recordings by uploading and applying custom 3D LUTs and view in full/half mode on screen, output it to another monitor or record it.
It has SMPTE ST-2084 PQ (Perceptual Quantisation) I/O that allows it to be used as a grading monitor in post and to output standard HDR to compatible TVs or monitors. The system also allows rough edits, as users can create playlists of either entire clips or tagged parts of clips, for playback.
The unit’s power system automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low for uninterrupted recording in the field, so the first battery can be replaced for continuous power.
The €1,995 Shogun Inferno ships with a hard case, a sun hood, fast battery charger, control cable, two NP-F750 4-cell batteries, USB 3.0 docking station, D-Tap cable, five master caddy cases, break-out XLR cable and a 12v 3A AC-DC power adapter.
