Video streaming for everyone has become extremely widespread and popular due to the Covid19 pandemic. Therefore, many camera manufacturers have provided free software in the past few months with which cameras can be used as webcams via USB for streaming.
Now the Atomos, whose video field recorders from the Ninja or Shogun series are used by many filmmakers and photographers, have a simple and inexpensive solution. The new Atomos Connect is a USB stick that enables professional HDMI to USB converter for streaming.
The Atomos Connect Stick works with every HDMI device, whether with a video and photo camera or a device from the Atomos range or other devices with an HDMI output such as computers, gaming consoles, UE devices. Connect is also easy to use and offers universal support for popular streaming platforms such as Youtube, Zoom, Twitch, Skype, etc. The USB stick is aimed at filmmakers, vloggers, gamers, and anyone who wants to stream video signals.
Atomos Connect 4K combines the Atomos world of professional recording and surveillance with popular streaming platforms. With the Atomos Connect, the video signal from the HDMI output can be easily converted to USB and streamed on a Mac or PC, even when on the move. Connect accepts up to 4Kp60 video at the input and can output up to 1080p60 via USB.
With a slim 0.5 inch profile, the Connect is small enough to sit right with a notebook or computer. No drivers are required and no power supply is required. This means that you can easily connect an HDMI device (camera or Atomos recorder) to a Mac or PC.
With the Atomos Shogun7 – a monitor/field recorder combination device – users can monitor and record up to four 1080p60 streams simultaneously; then call up and output with one push of a button. So users can use inexpensive cameras for multi-camera production.
By combining it with the Connect Stick, users can select one of the four video feeds in the Shogun7 and output it for live streaming on their Mac or PC and switch between the four feeds at the touch of a button. This makes the Shogun7 Connect package one of the simplest and most cost-effective options for professional video switching.
