Atomos Shogun 7 is a precision HDR monitor-recorder-switcher designed for the film and video professional. It can be used as either a stand-alone field monitor, recorder and switcher for event, documentary and live in-the- field storytelling; or as a tool for large-scale on-set episodic TV, film and cinema productions where multiple crew members such as focus pullers, grips and cinematographers require a consistent visual reference across the field monitor ecosystem. Shogun 7’s portable size lets you monitor, analyze and tag while on set; and check how your content will look in your audience’s home via real-time Dolby Vision output. With Shogun 7 you’re not locked into any format, camera manufacturer or pipeline. It is a completely flexible master recording and production station.
Live multi-cam has never been more portable
Monitor, record and switch between 4 live HD SDI video streams (and one program stream) for flexible in-the- field directing. Enjoy the freedom of asynchronous switching and gen lock in & out to connect to existing infrastructure. Shogun 7 offers up to HDp60 SDI ISOs x 4 recording. Once you’ve finished capturing your streams, just import the Atomos xml file into your NLE and your timeline populates with all your edits in place. Audio is also taken care of, with each ISO and program record, we insert the mixed analog stereo channels and embed 2 channels of digital audio in each recorded stream. The program stream always records the analog feed and switches between audio inputs for the on-camera audio to match the switched feed.
Single-camera storytelling in 4K, or 2K slow-mo
With the latest HDMI 2.0v you can capture up to 4Kp60 on any available camera, or via Quad Link, Dual Link or Single Link.

Advanced Atomos technology
Atomos have made the most advanced on-set production tool for creative enhancement, to achieve this they developed the most advanced screen technology today, and it took them three years. They developed “Dynamic AtomHDR” screen technology into Shogun 7’s field monitor which makes your images blacks blacker and whites brighter. They include real-time output to Dolby Vision capable displays so that you can quickly check that your Creative intent will translate perfectly to audiences at home. They added Apple ProRes RAW recording to other popularly available formats. They added live asynchronous switching to record up to four real-time cameras at the same time.
Blacker blacks, brighter whites
The Shogun 7 screen is the most precise 7” field reference monitor to-date for both SDR and HDR production as well as up to 2Kp240 and 4Kp60. Display your work on the world’s best HDR screen with the first-to-market Dynamic AtomHDR backlit technology, with 360 zones that revolutionizes the on-camera HDR monitor game. Dynamic AtomHDR achieves an astounding 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with ultra-wide color, giving you the ultimate combination of blacker than black OLED for intense shadow detail and blazing 1500nit LCD performance for vivid high bright and HDR performance.
