ATOMOS today is providing a sneak peek of Cloud Studio, a collection of video production services at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cloud Studio, developed in partnership with MAVIS, represents a radical innovation for all video creators, streamers, and filmmakers. Cloud Studio will launch with two new cloud-based live video production services for sharing and real-time collaboration. ATOMOS Capture to Cloud uploads files from ATOMOS network connected devices to cloud-based platforms, including Frame.io (an Adobe Company). ATOMOS Stream uses any ATOMOS network enabled device to live stream to popular platforms like Facebook Live, Twitch, YouTube, and more. To mark the return of the show MAVIS have released a free version of the MAVIS Pro Camera for NAB. 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 the most 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 the relationship between production and post. 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 breakdown the traditional divisions that exist between production and post, bringing teams closer. It’s safe to say that these tools are here to stay. Capture to Cloud adds new dimensions to these systems by allowing more cameras than ever before to be connected to online services and by introducing faster ways to upload footage.
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 simply 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™ greatly simplifies the nature of 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™ synchronisation becomes so easy that filmmakers at every level can use it to elevate the production value of their multi-camera project.
Capture to Cloud also supports a unique “dual record” mode to further accelerate the process of uploading to the cloud. With dual record enabled ATOMOS CONNECT, or SHOGUN CONNECT will record two files with matching filenames, timecode, metadata simultaneously. The full-resolution, Apple ProRes 422 or ProRes RAW* “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 even as it’s being captured. With this technology ATOMOS Capture to Cloud sets a new standard for the fastest 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. The simplicity and effectiveness of Capture to Cloud will empower customers to define new creative processes, explore new ways to work collaboratively with teams across the world, and set new standards for digital film and video production.
