Harnessing the latest recorder, monitor and playback technology with class leading Atomos usability and affordability, the Shogun Studio has everything needed for Live Event, Studio, On-set and Broadcast professionals.
With play list functionality & control via RS422, Ethernet or on screen, the Shogun Studio is an affordable 4K & HD play out engine for video walls, signage and projection.
Additionally, with dual channel play out capability over HDMI or 1.5/3/6/12G SDI, Genlock and 4K to HD down scaling the Shogun Studio can be used to provide scheduled, synchronized 4K, 2K and HD simultaneous play out to high resolution projector, jumbotron or signage systems.
Shogun Studio solves many of the problems faced by multi camera events with long run times. Our Master Caddy delivers affordable & reliable media while features like time lapse, pre-roll cache & 4K/HD simultaneous recording make this the perfect choice for Event professionals.
Our open approach with media means you record up to 2.5 hours of 4K 30p or 5 hours of 1080p60 onto a single 1TB SSD, keeping media costs less than $150 per hour. The Shogun Studio has the ability to then monitor the input, view waveforms/scopes, setup complex time lapses and simultaneously record a proxy – under pinned with the safe guard of pre-roll cache recording (8 sec for HD / 2 sec for 4K) to ensure you never miss the action.
With rack space at a premium and resolution on the rise, Mobile Production professionals will welcome the ability to record, monitor, test, measure, convert and play out from a single 3RU device.
Dual codec, dual resolution recording maximises the flexibility in mobile situations. Combine the ability to record 4K resolution ISO feeds with a hardware down converted HD proxy version, record ProRes on one channel and DNxHR on the other or even playback and convert from one codec/resolution combination to another. Connecting to infrastructure is simple as well with built-in HDMI and SDI conversion that is bi-directional. Shogun Studio is ready for the 4K future, but 4K acquisition doesn’t have to mean 4K delivery – when 4K can be achieved on a HD budget and you have the capability to downscale or record codec to suit you have the perfect product now and for the future in the tight space of Mobile production.
ON SET / DIT
Shogun Studio in the rack of a DIT cart arms the set with the fastest path from acquisition to editing by recording direct to 10-bit 422 ProRes, DNxHR and RAW all housed within a world class monitor with test measurement for the highest quality 4K/2K/HD viewing and setup.
For colour analysis, the RGB and Vector scopes provide real time feedback and can be overlaid in several positions on the colour accurate 7.1” 325ppi Full HD monitor. You can double check focus pulls with 2:1 zoom, focus peaking and edges only view and with 8 LUT slots on board and an infinite number on disk previewing the final result is easy. These decisions can be made with the confidence you are using a 100% sRGB factory calibrated monitor that can be calibrated over time using the optional Spyder unit. Outside of monitoring, DIT’s can start the editing process on set with favourite and reject tagging to start the formation of a play list and XML.
In security applications a wide angle lens on a 4K camera can mean a single camera replaces the equivalent of 4 x HD cameras. The Studio Shogun, with its long record time, time lapse, record scheduling and monitor zoom capability makes it the perfect weapon for 4K security applications.
In ProRes LT at 25 FPS the Shogun Studio can record 6 hours of Ultra High Definition 4K per channel, this not only provides superior resolution but also an increase in the number of frames captured per second providing a more finite approach to high resolution security recording. In applications where the additional frames aren’t important, the timelapse functionality can be set up to record specific frames at specific points over a specified duration. All of this can be reviewed on the dual 7.1” Full HD monitors and easily zoomed in for closer inspection of areas of interest.
