NEWS CAPTURE & PRODUCE Monitor Recorder Atomos used BVE in London to announce new features for its Shogun 4k recording and monitoring device, including the implementation of Avid DNxHR 4K recording, playback, play-out and editing. Free to existing customers via a free firmware update, the other additions included Atomos UHD to HD Down Convert. “Shogun is already the perfect partner for the exceptional Japanese 4K cameras,” said Jeromy Young chief executive and co-founder of Atomos. “With this announcement we are the only brand to have a 4K solution for Apple, Adobe and Avid workflows for video capture directly from the sensor of Sony, Panasonic, Canon and Nikon cameras. We are the only monitor recorder with 10-bit 4K HDMI recording, the only monitor recorder with Microsoft’s ExFAT recording beyond a 4GB size limit and now the only monitor recorder with recording options for Apple, Adobe and Avid.” The company also revealed that worldwide unit sales of Shogun are now approaching 10,000. Polecam Polecam Systems showed off its latest Polecam rigs at BVE in London, along with a collection of recently launched cameras and lenses including the new flagship Toshiba IK-HD5 and the IK-4KH minicam with the new Fujinon TF4XA-1 prime HD lens. Also on show was the new Fujinon XT17SX4 with 17x zoom lens drive and control. The Antelope PICO high speed ultra-motion minicam was displayed with its dedicated FishFace underwater housing and new lens drive. The PICO minicam is capable of producing ultra slow motion HD footage up to 350fps and can be mounted on a Polecam to give superb ultra Slo-Mo POV both above and below water. In total, five Polecam rigs were at the show. Graeme Chapman, managing director of Polecam Systems, said: “With the range of exciting new large sensor video and DSLR cameras that can now be used on Polecam, as well as the great new HD and 4K minicams, you have a very exciting single-operator lightweight and easily transportable crane system that will add production value to any production. Polecam’s success keeps on growing, with many owner operators now around the world.” 10 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 99 MARCH 2015
