The new Atomos Shogun is the world's first 12G SDI & 4K HDMI I/O monitor, recorder, deck and features a stunning 1920x1080 SuperAtom IPS 7" touchscreen 325 PPI 179-degree viewing. 400nit brightness and multi-frequency (48/50/60Hz) operation, depending on video input, giving super-smooth monitoring and playback.
The Shogun utilises both 4K and HD clean output from HDMI cameras such as the latest Sony A7S, Panasonic GH4, 4K SDI C500, and can record 24, 25 or 30p from the camera and up to 120fps HD if the camera is capable. It also has genlock in for synced playout and features optional Wifi for remote control from iOS or Android devices. Improved audio handling with the included Lemo breakout cable for XLR Audio gives balanced audio, mic and Phantom power.
Like the Samurai and Ninja Blade, Shogun allows you to set up the shot with waveform and monitor assist tools, record pristine, 422 10-bit images straight from the camera sensor directly, all to inexpensive single SSDs or RAIDed HDDs, captured using 4K/HD ProRes, Uncompressed RAW Cinema DNG or Avid DNxHD codecs.

Shogun. In terms of hardware, we have closely monitored the build of
the first production units and are proud of the manufacturing quality.
There is nothing preventing us from shipping the Shogun and its
accessories from a hardware perspective. Although the Shoguns are
physically built and ready to ship, the firmware is taking longer than
expected to finalize taking into account our high standards of
