ATOMOS previews Cloud Studio. Cloud-based video production tools and services

0

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 with remote team members.
Over the past two years, online review and collaboration platforms have become essential services and have transformed production and publishing relationships. These cloud services are rapidly gaining popularity and have proven their effectiveness over thousands of productions. By removing the need to manually offload cards during production and wait for rushes to be reviewed, cloud workflows break down traditional divisions between production and publishing, bringing teams closer together.

Just as ATOMOS works with many camera manufacturing partners to provide the most flexible recording and monitoring solutions, engineers have taken great care in designing Capture to Cloud to support a range of cloud services. The platform will launch with integrations for companies 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 instantly uploading clips to the cloud service of their choice.

Capture to Cloud also includes support for ATOMOS AirGlu™ technology that enables direct communication between devices and provides wireless timecode locking, an essential feature for all multi-camera post-production workflows. AirGlu™ simplifies multi-camera production and transforms what was a proprietary workflow into one that spans all devices from iPhone via Bluetooth LE and includes support for ATOMOS UltraSync.

With ATOMOS AirGlu™, synchronization becomes easier for filmmakers at all levels to increase the production value of their multi-camera projects. Capture to Cloud also supports a unique “dual recording” mode to further speed up the cloud upload process. With dual recording 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 “hero” version (ProRes RAW requires NINJA V+ or SHOGUN CONNECT) 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 start uploading the file as it is captured.

ATOMOS Capture to Cloud is a fast way to transfer, securely save and share clips with remote team members, bypassing the usual timeout waiting for camera card ingestion , hard drives shipping or even the camera stopping recording.

ATOMOS flow

ATOMOS flow is an all-in-one solution that allows any ATOMOS network-enabled device to broadcast a live stream. Whether you’re using the new ATOMOS CONNECT for NINJA V and NINJA V+ or the SHOGUN CONNECT, connecting the device to the destination platform and setting up a stream has never been easier.

During launch, ATOMOS flow will include free support to stream content directly to a single platform, including Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and more. Later this year, ATOMOS aims to launch a premium restreaming service via ATOMOS Cloud Studio to support multi-platform delivery simultaneously. ATOMOS Stream uses industry standard encryption to ensure that all data transfers are protected and streams are secure. The integrated system supports a wide 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. Producing live events and multi-camera shoots has never been easier or more accessible. With Live Production, video creators will be able to produce a high-quality live broadcast at a fraction of the cost. The toolset includes a comprehensive video mixer and sound mixer, video effects and graphics, and talkback.

ATOMOS live production can work with any camera, from pro broadcast models, through DSLRs and mirrorless, to the Apple iPhone. The system can provide timecode synchronization 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.

Using a very low latency protocol, each stream can be monitored in real time from a browser, iPad app or any compatible control panel from anywhere in the world. Once logged into the system, team members can view, direct, produce, mix and more from anywhere. Built-in live chat technology keeps team members connected and allows iPhone plug-in 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 says the technology has been developed and tested by experienced industry professionals to ensure it is robust and capable of supporting distributed teams and remote collaboration. Live production represents a fundamental shift in the technologies required for outdoor broadcasts and live events. ATOMOS claims to have created a complete workflow that reduces technical overhead, lowers knowledge barriers and eliminates the high expense of conventional productions.

MAVIS broadcast

The MAVIS team has many years of experience in broadcast system architecture and graphics workflows. MAVIS products can replace traditional outdoor broadcast equipment and create a cloud-based control room to enable production from anywhere. The collaboration of the two companies will showcase the technology preview at NAB 2022.
