Atomos has announced support for Apple ProRes RAW, a new version of ProRes that works with RAW footage.
The ProRes RAW update will be available free for the Atomos Shogun Inferno and Sumo 19 devices.
Atomos devices are the first monitor recorders to offer ProRes RAW. Atomos CEO Jeromy Young said: “We are incredibly proud to be the first ProRes RAW enabled product in the market and it’s free for our customers. The performance and flexibility of ProRes RAW means a huge leap forward for video production.”
The new upgrade brings ProRes RAW and ProRes RAW HQ recording, monitoring, playback and tag editing to all owners of an Atomos Shogun Inferno or Sumo19 devices. Once installed, it will allow the capture of RAW images in up to 12-bit RGB — direct from many pro cameras onto SSD media. ProRes RAW files can be imported directly into Final Cut Pro 10.4.1 for editing, colour grading, and finishing on Mac laptop and desktop systems.
Eight of the most popular cine cameras with a RAW output, including the Panasonic AU-EVA1, Varicam LT, Sony FS5/FS7 and Canon C300mkII/C500, will be supported initially with more to follow.
The AtomOS 9 update for Shogun Inferno and Sumo 19 can be downloaded on April 9th at www.atomos.com/firmware
