The Atomos Samurai Blade, Ninja Blade, Shogun and Ninja Assassin are receiving the free firmware treatment with a new operating system called AtomHDR scheduled for release in May. Atomos also adds the Shogun Inferno to their line of monitor / recorders. Inferno has all the features of the previous Flame, but adds some key things for video professionals like high frame-rate recording and quad SDI connections.
Atomos are also adding ST2084 PQ in/out for HDR & new WFM guides to the Shogun Flame & Ninja Flame with a new 7.1 OS. To support all this new HDR tech, they've got a new line of coiled 4k 60p HDMI cables with HDMI 2.0 speed and integration with the popular X-Rite i1Display Pro to help combat color drift.
