The ATOMOS CONNECT and SHOGUN CONNECT have received new firmware that now enables them to be used with Frame.io Camera to Cloud workflows.
Cameras using the ATOMOS CONNECT or SHOGUN CONNECT can now be used to collaborate in real-time, with support for remote team members, regardless of the location or the budget.
A C2C workflow provides a direct path for production to send media directly to the post-production teams. Media is transferred from C2C certified devices on set to the cloud for viewing, approval, and editing.
Key benefits of the updates
The new firmware updates for the ATOMOS CONNECT and SHOGUN CONNECT bring a number of benefits to users, including live streaming from 4K/UHD resolution cameras. Users can now remotely share the footage with colleagues in near real-time. With AtomOS Connect 2.4 update, live streaming is available for both ProRes or H.264 formats with an added battery life indicator as well as a power fail-safe mode that will pause recording in the event of any low power situation.
Important information about the updates
If you’re looking to get started with the new firmware updates, first make sure that your ATOMOS CONNECT or SHOGUN CONNECT is updated to the latest version. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to connect your camera to the device using an HDMI cable. To do this:
- Go into the settings on your camera (from within the Camera) and select HDMI IN as the Input.
- Select Output: Native as the Output.
- Click Apply Changes in order to make these changes effective on your device. You will now be able to work collaboratively from Frame without needing a PC or laptop!
How Frame.io and ATOMOS technologies have already had an impact on their productions
Recently Trevor Elbourne, ATOMOS CEO, Paul Surrell, ATOMOS Senior VP Product, and Michael Cioni, Senior Director of Global Innovation at Adobe, sat for a virtual roundtable with filmmakers Armando Ferreira, Bobby Goulding, and Dru Williams to talk about the way filmmaking is evolving. In a wide-ranging conversation, the panellists discussed the state of the industry, how Frame.io and ATOMOS technologies have already impacted their productions, and how new ATOMOS devices will further accelerate their workflow while introducing new ways for their teams to collaborate.
