One of the core functions of Atomos devices is the ability to utilize the monitor as a play back and play out device for the content that has been recorded. Pressing the Play button from the home screen switches the device into playback mode and the last clip recorded on to the drive will instantly begin to playback.
Clips can be selected for play back by tapping the clip name at the top of the screen, with the ability to skip to the next or previous clip via the on screen controls. Once the file name had been pressed a menu displaying the clips available on the drive will be displayed showing clip name (with Scene shot Take numbers) as well as resolution, codec and duration. on Shogun/Assassin/Flame/Inferno series, tapping to highlight a clip will show a preview of the first frame in the back ground and tapping again will play this clip or by pressing the play button. When the playback content list menu is open play back will automatically stop.
