Atomos and Panasonic announce first 5.9K 35mm full frame ProRes RAW recording from the Lumix S1H

Press Release - Sydney Australia, 28 September 2019

Atomos is excited to announce up to 5.9Kp30 RAW support over HDMI from the brand new Panasonic Lumix S1H to the Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder that enables Apple ProRes RAW recording. The Lumix ProRes RAW update will be available on the Ninja V in early 2020.

Jeromy Young, Atomos Cofounder and CEO:

“We are very proud of developing new ground-breaking technology with a company of the calibre of Panasonic. We are both highly committed to the democratisation of filmmaking for creators, and the ability to record ProRes RAW or ProRes RAW HQ from the S1H to a Ninja V 5.9kp30 is a major leap forward in this endeavour.”

“Our advancements in screen technology now allows creators to accurately monitor RAW video in real-time as it would be viewed in the home or cinema for perfect preservation of creative intent. Our pristine custom Atomos HDR screens are second to none in colour accuracy and representation of brightness from RAW signals. When combined, these advantages create a dream workflow for filmmakers, from image capture to post production. The speed and quality ProRes RAW delivers in real-time multi stream Final Cut Pro X editing on a Mac is truly remarkable.”

As the world’s first full-frame mirrorless camera capable of 6K video, the Lumix S1H combines the quality of professional cinema-grade video cameras with the size and photo capability of a mirrorless, making it the perfect companion to the Ninja V. “The leading brand of external monitor-recorders is definitely Atomos. Both companies have a very good relationship and we have been providing 4:2:2 10bit HDMI output recording for the Lumix GH series for years. We are very proud to be developing RAW output via HDMI with Atomos for the S1H, recording Apple ProRes RAW to a Ninja V.” Said Panasonic at their launch event in LA.
