Shogun in the Cloud: Capturing Cinematic Brilliance with Cloud-Powered Workflows

By Nathan Plant | Technical Product Specialist, Holdan

In the dynamic realm of filmmaking, technology continues to play a pivotal role in pushing creative boundaries. The recent release of the Atomos Shogun series, featuring the Shogun and Shogun Ultra, marks a significant leap forward for filmmakers seeking advanced monitor recorders. In this blog post, we'll explore the ground-breaking features and capabilities of the Shogun series, highlighting how it empowers filmmakers to capture, monitor, and collaborate like never before.

The Evolution of Shoguns

The Shogun series builds upon the success of its predecessors, addressing the demands of filmmakers with a larger 7-inch super-bright screen. Offering both HDMI and SDI I/O, the Shogun is designed to cater to DSLR, mirrorless, and cinematic cameras. With integrated networking for cloud workflows, it not only enhances connectivity but also supports a wide range of camera-to-cloud options.

Superior Display Technology

The Shogun's super-bright 7-inch screen boasts 2000 nits brightness, providing clear visibility in diverse lighting conditions. This makes it an ideal choice for checking HDR footage on set or reviewing captured shots, ensuring filmmakers receive instant, critical feedback on their images.

Production Powerhouse

The Shogun series is a production powerhouse with features like RAW capture up to 6K at 30fps (Shogun) & 8K Raw from the Shogun Ultra. Its ultra-bright HDR screen, packed with on-screen tools for focus, exposure, custom LUTs, and metadata, enhances the filmmaker's workflow. The AtomOS 11 operating system further optimises memory management, providing greater responsiveness.

Codec Choices for Flexibility

With multiple codecs, including Apple ProRes, Apple ProRes RAW, H.265, and DNx, the Shogun series offers filmmakers the flexibility to choose the ideal codec for their projects. The activation process is streamlined, ensuring users can start shooting immediately with pre-activated Apple ProRes.

Innovative Features of AtomOS 11

The AtomOS 11 introduces new features like SegmentPro, enabling users to segment or split long recordings into user-defined chunks. The Colourised Exposure feature, EL Zone System™, and ARRI False Colour provide precise exposure assessment in both HDR and SDR production.

Remote Collaboration with RemoteView

The Shogun series introduces RemoteView, a groundbreaking feature allowing wireless sharing of incoming video on Atomos screens with other monitors, iPads, Macs, and Apple TVs. This facilitates real-time monitoring and collaboration, transcending geographical boundaries.

AtomX SSDmini Drive for Unrestricted Recording

The capability to record up to 8K using advanced formats necessitates fast and expansive storage. The Shogun supports AtomX SSDmini drives, compact yet powerful drives providing up to 4TB of storage with impressive read and write speeds.

Versatility and Compatibility

The Shogun series is designed to be versatile and compatible with a wide range of cameras, from smaller setups to full-size camera rigs. With anti-rotational mount points and a solid aluminium frame, it ensures durability and ease of use.


The Atomos Shogun series stands as a testament to the relentless pursuit of innovation in filmmaking technology. Its combination of superior display technology, advanced features, and collaborative tools positions it as an indispensable asset for filmmakers striving to bring their creative visions to life. Whether you're capturing RAW footage, monitoring in diverse environments, or collaborating remotely, the Shogun series empowers filmmakers to work faster and better, allowing them to focus on the art of storytelling through the lens.
