h. 12G SDI In/Out
The SDI connectors are 12G SDI compliant and backwards compatible. This allows you to monitor and record SDI video up to 4Kp60 from a range of professional cameras and video sources, as well as send video to any SDI device.
i. 4K HDMI In/Out
The 4K HDMI input provides for recording from HDMI sources. This connection also supports embedded audio and timecode if your camera or device sends these out over HDMI. The 4K HDMI Output allows for connection to an external monitor or other device with an HDMI input. It provides a live loop out of the incoming HDMI signal in record and standby mode, and a loop-through of the playback signal when in playback mode. Both connectors are HDMI 2.0a.
Video Scale Convert
Video out also has the option for a downscale to be applied allowing your 4K input to be converted to a 1080 HD output for use with existing HD equipment. DCI signals with a 17:9 aspect ratio have the option to be cropped to 16:9 to support a wider range of output displays.
Most mirrorless cameras and camcorders send 2 channels of audio over HDMI but SHOGUN CONNECT can record up to 8 channels of digital audio embedded in the HDMI signal if supported.
3D LUT Output
3D LUTs can be applied to the outputs of the SHOGUN CONNECT and LUTs can also be selected to be applied to the outputs and routed out to other equipment via the HDMI connections.
The SHOGUN CONNECT can read the incoming HDR information frame from compatible cameras that indicates if a signal is HLG or PQ. You can set the SHOGUN CONNECT to automatically detect this and loop this out. You can also convert between a Log input to HDR display standards or between HLG <> PQ, and Dolby. For more information refer to the The first step in HDR is to recognize you have a HDR scene. Look for a good range of contrast across the brightest and darkest parts of your image and also across the color and tonal range as each color also contains its own brightness or luminance information. section.
For future expanded functionality.

n. Headphone/Audio Out
3.5mm output jack, used for the connection of headphones. Can also be used for analogue audio out. Channel selection and volume for headphone monitoring is via the audio menu page on your SHOGUN CONNECT. To access this menu, tap the audio meters in the upper right side of the touchscreen (monitoring mode) or in the bottom right of the screen (homescreen mode). For more details refer to the Audio Meters section.
When monitoring any channels please ensure that the headphone selection is set to the stereo pair you’d like to monitor.
o. Remote Control/LANC and Calibration
Allows for remote camera control of supported cameras with the optional USB-C to serial cable (ATOMCAB018) and LANC control with a Y cable. The Calibrite ColorChecker Display Pro /Display Plus can also be connected for display calibration with the optional USB to serial adapter cable (ATOMCAB004). The latest version of ATOMOS Calibration software is available at www.atomos.com/support
For optimal calibration it is recommended that your SHOGUN CONNECT is powered for 30 minutes prior to calibration.
For remote operations via this port, ATOMOS supports both LANC in Sony and Canon format. The SHOGUN CONNECT uses LANC Client so a LANC controller must first be attached to a camera and the output taken out via a Y cable to the SHOGUN CONNECT.
