PORT MELBOURNE, Australia, Sept. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading global monitor-recorder company Atomos today unveiled a new chapter in screen technology with the unveiling of a super bright 3000nit free upgrade to the 7" HDR Shogun 7.
"Unbelievable HDR is just one of the many compelling benefits of the new Shogun 7. Now, thanks to a super bright 3000nit screen, we can give professional shooters, filmmakers and content creators over 15 stops of dynamic range. With 360 zones, 1,000,000:1 contrast and 105% DCI-P3 color, the on-set monitoring experience is truly a level up," said Jeromy Young, Atomos Co-founder and CEO.
Off the back of the initial launch of Shogun 7 in April 2019, Atomos is now enabling 3000nit brightness for free as part of a firmware update to the pro/cinema monitor-recorder-switcher.
"To take advantage of the Shogun 7's super bright 3000nit screen, new and existing Atomos customers simply need to visit our website and download the latest firmware," added Young.
In addition to enhanced screen brightness, Atomos will showcase two highly anticipated features of the Shogun 7 at the Amsterdam IBC show from today. The New Touch and Switch 5 Stream switching and Dolby Vision playout are both due for official release later this month.
"While the super bright HDR touchscreen of the Shogun 7 is definitely something our customers have been asking for, multi-camera switching and Dolby Vision playout are equally as important, we're pleased to deliver those features for all Shogun 7 customers in October," said Young.
