Atomos Free Firmware Update – Making Capturing HDR and HLG Easier Than Ever

By Adam Plowden

In the latest free AtomOS 8.4 firmware update, Atomos unleashes the power of capturing High Dynamic Range and Hybrid Log Gamma.

For Atomos Shogun Inferno and Ninja Inferno users, the latest free update will allow Hybrid Log Gamma and HDR video to be recorded directly from cameras such as the Sony FS5 and Panasonic GH5. This footage (recorded in Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR) has embedded metadata that allows for a complete end-to-end workflow, whether that is through editing on standard editing applications or directly uploaded to YouTube for example.

Previewing in HDR is triggered by the metadata, which automatically adjusts the gamut and gamma of the monitor-recorders display, so you can take advantage of the rich colours and dynamic range of your input source. If you’re shooting with a camera that has a Log output, it is now possible to convert this for previewing a HDR image on the monitor too.

It is also now possible to record 240fps in 2K on the Panasonic Varicam LT through the cameras RAW output, as well as 4K 12-bit RAW in CDNC up to 30p, and 2K 10-bit RAW at 100/120fps in CDNG also.
