An interview from the 2019 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Jeromy Young of Atomos. Atomos is a global video technology company delivering award-winning, simple to use monitor-recorder content creation products. These products give content creators across the rapidly growing social, pro-video and entertainment markets a faster, higher quality and more affordable production system. The company's range of products take images directly from the sensor of all major camera manufacturers, then enhance, record and distribute them in high-quality formats for content creation using major video editing software programs. In this interview Jeromy talks with us about a bunch of exciting news, such as 16bit RAW support for Sony's new FX9 camera to the Atomos Neon 8K MCU, and an upgrade to the Shogun 7 enabling 3000nit HDR.
Off the back of the initial launch of Shogun 7 in April 2019, Atomos is now enabling 3000nit brightness for free as part of a firmware update to the pro/cinema monitor-recorder-switcher.“ To take advantage of the Shogun 7’s super bright 3000nit screen, new and existing Atomos customers simply need to visit our website and download the latest firmware.” Added Young. In addition to enhanced screen brightness, Atomos will showcase two highly anticipated features of the Shogun 7 at the Amsterdam IBC show. The New Touch and Switch5 Stream switching and Dolby Vision playoutare both due for official release later this month.
The FX9, which will go to market towards to end of 2019, features an advanced 6K full-frame sensor and has been designed to give professional shooters greater flexibility and capture capability, making it an ideal match for the Atomos Neon range. The FX9 has the same DNA as the popular VENICE cinema camera making it the ideal music, documentary, drama and event shooting.“ When paired with an Atomos Neon, the FX9 will be one of the most advanced production tools available today. We’re excited to empower content creators and filmmakers at the highest level through our ongoing work with Sony.” Added Young.
