ATOMOS has announced ZATO CONNECT, the second fully integrated device to join the CONNECT range. ZATO CONNECT was designed to make livestreaming and high-quality video conferencing accessible to the masses.
The 5-inch ZATO CONNECT is a compact, easy-to-use gateway to ATOMOS Cloud Studio. The device supports nearly all HDMI and USB UVC sources and features Wi-Fi 5 and Gigabit Ethernet (via USB-C) for maximum network compatibility. In addition to streaming to Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and other social sites, ZATO CONNECT can also be used to enhance web conferencing.

The ZATO CONNECT will convert HDMI sources to webcam signals, so that they can be used with Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom, and other video conferencing software. AtomOS Lite software contains all the essential tools to combine sources, record streams, and overlay graphics. Forthcoming updates to ZATO CONNECT will introduce support for additional ATOMOS Cloud Studio services and NDI|HX.
The ZATO CONNECT features input and output ports for both HDMI and USB UVC. It can transform the output from a wide array of video sources into a livestream or webcam source.
The ZATO CONNECT utilizes a SuperAtom IPS 5-inch (1000nit) display, Wi-Fi 5, USB-C, and Ethernet (via USB-C adapter). It can be powered via an NP-F battery or USB-C PD power options. A 3.5mm audio jack can also be used to add microphone or line sources and the ZATO CONNECT can be used to mix them with embedded audio from HDMI or USB UVC.
Atomos has made the ZATO CONNECT compact enough to mount on a mirrorless camera. It can also be used next to a PC, Mac computer, or gaming console.
The ZATO CONNECT makes livestreaming and high-quality video conferencing easy and accessible from anywhere. With support for HDMI and USB UVC cameras or video sources, the device is equipped with Wi-Fi 5, Gigabit Ethernet (via an included USB-C adapter), and the ability to join cellular hotspots, so you can stream to social sites including Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube. Conversely, you can create high-quality video for conferencing software such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Zoom.
The AtomOS Lite software features a number of key tools including overlay effects, image zoom, and frame guides. There is also support to combine live sources or deliver recorded content.
ZATO CONNECT includes an audio mixer, which can be used to adjust and combine audio signals from the 3.5mm analog input with the embedded audio from HDMI and USB UVC sources. Each channel can be adjusted independently and mixed down to a single stereo track for a livestream, recording, or video presentation.
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 paid “restreaming” service, via ATOMOS Cloud Studio to support the delivery to multiple platforms simultaneously.
ATOMOS Stream employs industry-standard encryption to ensure that all data it transfers are protected, and streams are secure. The integrated system supports a large range of cameras. Customers can use it with digital cinema cameras, mirrorless or DLSR cameras, or iOS devices.
