AtomOS 10.42 Adds SonyPXW-FX9 SDI RAW Recording
Atomos is delighted to announce RAW recording support for Sony’s PXW-FX9 camcorder with full-frame sensor, which is now capable of outputting RAW over SDI***. This is all made possible with the Atomos Shogun 7 which will record pristine Apple ProRes RAW images at up to DCI 4Kp60, or in 2K up to DCI 2Kp180 continuous for stunning slow motion from the FX9 and XDCA-FX9 Extension Unit. The resulting images have amazing detail and a high degree of latitude to utilize in post-production – optimal for HDR finishing or to give greater flexibility in SDR (Rec.709).
Recording over SDI from the FX9*** with the Shogun 7 extends the performance of the class leading camcorder by taking RAW data from its state-of-the-art sensor and recording it in the flexible and efficient ProRes RAW format. Recorded with 12Bit color depth, which corresponds to over 68 billion color graduations.
The FX9 with XDCA-FX9 joins the existing Sony RAW capable line-up of FS7*, FS7 II*, FS5** and FS5 II, which all work with the Shogun 7 to record in ProRes RAW.
The FX9 camera’s RAW output *** is now available via a V2.01firmware update for the FX9 from Sony. Today Atomos is making it possible to record RAW footage with Shogun 7 and FX9 with the AtomOS V10.42 firmware download available on the Atomos website.

PXW-FX9 metadata: ProRes RAW has metadata supplied by the FX9. Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and other NLEs will recognise ProRes RAW files recorded by the Shogun 7 from the FX9’s RAW output and allow for them to be set up for editing and display in either SDR or HDR projects. Additional information will also allow other software to perform extensive parameter adjustments.
