Zato CONNECT is packed with all the features you’d expect from Atomos, and streamlined for speed. A brilliant monitor, essential I/O and onboard recording are just the start of it. Connecting to the cloud with Zato gives you superpowers. That’s because you can capture, edit and post your social media content in the fastest possible way.

The Fastest Path from Lens to Likes

While you shoot, Zato uploads your video to the cloud. It will just be “there” for you as soon as you’re ready to edit – or a friend can start editing while you’re shooting. And that friend can be anywhere! There’s no downloading because, with Atomos Edit*, part of Atomos Cloud Services (ACS), you edit in the cloud, via a browser, on almost any device.

The Power of Camera to Cloud

Zato gives you access to Camera to Cloud (C2C), a simple-to-use, secure method to share media and collaborate in real-time. Through Atomos Cloud Studio

you have a choice of C2C platform: Adobe or Sony Ci Media. Zato CONNECT acts as a gateway to the cloud for an increasingly wide range of digital cinema, mirrorless and DSLR cameras that would not otherwise be able to connect to a network or manage file transfers.

Dreaming of streaming?

Zato is built for streaming. With network connectivity and easy on-screen set-up, it’s simple and fast to produce and deliver the best-looking live streams. Anyone can set up a stream using Atomos Cloud Studio and Zato CONNECT. With a high-brightness touchscreen display, you can configure your stream and monitor HDMI and webcam sources. Choose picture-in-picture and add graphics overlays for a fully-produced look to your streams.


Zato CONNECT gets you in the cloud for streaming, cloud editing with Atomos Edit* or craft editing with Premiere via Adobe Camera to Cloud (C2C) integration, powered by, allows you to upload high-quality H.264 recordings for real-time collaboration and approval workflows. You can also use Zato CONNECT to convert almost any HDMI or USB UVC source to a format you can send directly to Microsoft Teams, Slack, Zoom and other conferencing software via its universally compatible USB UVC output.


With its SuperAtom IPS 5-inch (1000nit) display, AtomOS Lite provides an easy-to-use touchscreen user experience for first-time Atomos users. It comes equipped with a selection of our most intuitive tools in familiar places, so even long-time power users feel right at home when diving into the world of Atomos Cloud Studio-enabled workflows. Live streaming and high-quality video conferencing and cloud editing with Atomos Edit* are made easy and accessible with Zato CONNECT.

Connect to the internet using Wi-Fi 5 or Ethernet (via USB-C adapter) via your home/work network or cellular hotspot. Zato CONNECT is an ideal solution for live streaming in the field, the studio, or wherever else you travel. It can be mounted right on top of a DSLR or mirrorless camera, but it’s equally at home next to a multi-input switcher, such as our AtomX CAST or a gaming console for a fully computerless streaming workflow. You can power it for hours from a single NP-F battery or use mains power via USB-C PD.

Comprehensive I/O

Although incredibly compact, Zato CONNECT has input and output ports for both HDMI and USB UVC and can transform the output from a wide array of video equipment into a live stream or webcam source. With a 3.5mm audio jack for microphone or line inputs, Zato CONNECT also allows you to monitor your audio via its dedicated headphone output.

Your Switcher’s New Best Friend

Using Zato CONNECT as a portable program monitor and streaming encoder makes it your multi-input switcher’s new best friend. Gone are the days of carrying a heavy laptop to every gig, as Zato can handle many of its tasks with a much smaller footprint. It fits into any camera bag and comes in super light at 245g.

Record and Restream

Any HDMI or webcam input, as well as a backup of your ongoing live stream or presentation, can be recorded onto SD card using the popular H.264 codec. With the ability to combine pre-recorded sources with live content, it’s possible to take one of these recordings and stream the content “as live.” This opens up lots of creative opportunities and adds value to any stream or video presentation.

Get your Audio in the Mix

Zato CONNECT includes a powerful audio mixer, so you can combine analog mic/line sources with digital audio from HDMI or USB UVC devices, as well as play back audio from recordings on the SD card, into a single stereo track. The volume for each channel can be adjusted independently and monitored via its dedicated headphone output to ensure that the audio mix of your stream or presentation is always on point.

Configurable Picture-in-Picture

Zato CONNECT supports Picture-in-Picture (PiP) with easy-to-use presets, but also gives you all the controls you need to make on-the-fly adjustments to your PiP configuration, including PiP size, PiP position, and a PiP source selector.
