ATOMOS Capture to Cloud uploads files from ATOMOS network-connected devices such as the new ATOMOS CONNECT and SHOGUN CONNECT and to cloud-based platforms, including Frame.io.
ATOMOS Stream uses any ATOMOS network-enabled device to live stream to popular platforms like Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, etc.
MAVIS has released a free version of the MAVIS Pro Camera for NAB to mark the show’s return. The app is a powerful 4K video camera for filmmakers, and future updates will work seamlessly with the ATOMOS Cloud Studio.
ATOMOS Capture to Cloud
With the new Capture to Cloud, ATOMOS has introduced a powerful, flexible, and immediate way to share clips from a camera with the new ATOMOS CONNECT or SHOGUN CONNECT devices to remote team members.
Over the past two years, online review and collaboration platforms have become essential services and transformed production and post relationships. These cloud services are rapidly growing in popularity and have proven their efficiencies on thousands of productions. By removing the need to manually offload cards during production and wait for rushes to be reviewed, cloud workflows break down the traditional divisions between production and post, bringing teams closer.
Just as ATOMOS works with many different camera manufacturer partners to provide the most flexible recording and monitoring solutions, the engineers have been careful to design Capture to Cloud to support an array of cloud services. The platform will launch with integrations for businesses using file-sharing services and studios working with Frame.io, with many more to come. With Capture to Cloud, customers will connect any network-enabled ATOMOS device to their camera and begin uploading clips instantly to the cloud service of their choice.
Capture to Cloud also includes support for ATOMOS AirGlu™ technology which enables direct communication between devices and provides a wireless timecode lock, an essential feature for all multi-camera post-production workflows. AirGlu™ simplifies multi-camera production and transforms what has been an exclusive workflow into one that expands across devices from iPhone via Bluetooth LE and includes support for ATOMOS UltraSync.
With ATOMOS AirGlu™, synchronization becomes easier for filmmakers at every level to elevate the production value of their multi-camera projects. Capture to Cloud also supports a unique “dual record” mode to further accelerate the uploading process to the cloud. With dual record enabled, ATOMOS CONNECT, or SHOGUN CONNECT, will simultaneously record two files with matching filenames, timecode, and metadata.
The full-resolution Apple ProRes 422 or ProRes RAW ( ProRes RAW requires NINJA V+ or SHOGUN CONNECT ) “hero” version and a high-quality, bandwidth-efficient HEVC (H.265) version. Each proxy is automatically uploaded to the cloud using a new ATOMOS progressive file transfer protocol, which can begin uploading the file as it’s being captured.
ATOMOS Capture to Cloud is a fast way to transfer, securely back-up, and share clips with remote team members, bypassing the usual delay of waiting for camera cards to ingest, hard drives to ship, or even for the camera to stop recording.
ATOMOS Stream is an all-in-one solution that enables any ATOMOS network-enabled device to deliver a live stream. Whether you use the new ATOMOS CONNECT for NINJA V and NINJA V+ or the SHOGUN CONNECT, connecting the device to the destination platform and configuring a stream has never been easier.
At launch, ATOMOS Stream will include free support to deliver content directly to a single platform, including Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and more. Later this year, ATOMOS aims to release a premium “restreaming” service via ATOMOS Cloud Studio to simultaneously support the delivery to multiple platforms. ATOMOS Stream employs industry-standard encryption to ensure that all data transfers are protected, and streams are secure. The integrated system supports an extensive range of cameras that sets a new benchmark for flexibility and reduces barriers to entry. Users can choose to work with high-end digital cinema cameras, mirrorless or DLSR cameras, or iOS devices.
ATOMOS Live Production
ATOMOS and MAVIS will provide an exclusive technology preview of ATOMOS Live Production at NAB, a complete, cloud-based control room for live video and remote collaboration. Production for live events and multi-camera shoots has never been this accessible or this easy. With Live Production, video creatives will be able to produce a high-quality live show at a fraction of the cost. The toolset includes a fully-featured video switcher and sound mixer, video effects and graphics, and talkback.
ATOMOS Live Production can work with any camera, from professional broadcast models, through DSLR and mirrorless, to the Apple iPhone. The system can provide timecode sync to all sources in the cloud and on every connected device. Using the new ATOMOS CONNECT or SHOGUN CONNECT devices, camera feeds are streamed to the Live Production system.
Utilizing an ultra-low-latency protocol, each stream can be controlled in real-time from a browser, iPad app, or any compatible control panel from anywhere in the world. Once logged into the system, crew members can view, direct, produce, mix, and more from any location. The integrated live talkback technology keeps team members connected and allows for an iPhone to be hooked up to ensure team members can communicate directly and easily. Delivery destinations include a dedicated Apple TV app or iOS devices to ensure everyone can see the production as it goes live.
Atomos states the technology has been developed and tested by experienced industry professionals to ensure that it is robust and capable of supporting distributed teams and remote collaboration. Live Production represents a fundamental shift in the technologies required for outside broadcasts and live events. ATOMOS states they have created an entire workflow that reduces the technical burden lowers the knowledge barriers and eliminates the significant expense of conventional productions.
The team at MAVIS has many years of experience working in broadcast system architecture and graphics workflows. MAVIS products can replace traditional outside broadcast hardware and create a cloud-based control room to enable production from anywhere. The two companies’ collaboration will be showing the technology preview at NAB 2022.
