ATOMOS Product Releases and Updates
ENTER THE NINJA V
1″ thin, 11oz lit – 2.5cm thin, 320g lite. A stealthy, 5-inch, 4Kp60 10bit HDR daylight view-able 1000nit portable monitor/recorder. Perfect for Mirrorless, DSLRs and Gaming.
10 April, 2018: At NAB Show 2018, Atomos release the Ninja V – compacting their already highly portable monitor/recorder into a sleek, new chassis without skimping on the features and functionality. Thin and light, the 5 inch HD display is still super bright and Ninja V supports HDR DCI 4K at 60p recorded to ProRes HQ and Avid DNxHR. Its smaller screen size and HDMI 2.0 connectivity makes it a perfect fit for all the latest small format cameras and video production tools. They are also pushing its credentials as an option for gamers wanting to record and review HDR, high frame rate HD (240P) or 4K directly from their console or PC. Connect the gaming device to the HDMI input and the TV to the output and auto HDR flags sent to the TV over HDMI ensure that the TV is correctly configured to display the content at its best. The Ninja V sees the launch of a new, similarly compact SSD media, AtomX SSDMini, 20% shorter, but retaining the broadly compatible SATAIII interface and maintaining the performance needed for the formats Ninja V records – details on these will follow, including custom Angelbird models! Another interesting addition is a new ‘modular expansion slot’, incorporated into the battery slot. Supporting modules from Atomos and ‘Third Parties’, the slot can carry bi-directional high speed video, audio and power – looking forward to seeing what develops from this!

On-Camera / Portable Products
Shogun Inferno combines our award winning HDR, high bright monitor with high resolution, high frame rate recording. Designed for the world’s leading cinema cameras with both Quad-Link SDI* and HDMI 2.0 connections for recording up to 4K 60p (HD 240p*) video, 4K 30p Raw to CDNG* and 4K 60p Raw to ProRes / DNxHR*.
Change the way you shoot with Log. Record Log in 4K or HD ProRes/DNxHR from video or raw cameras with the Shogun Flame’s HDMI or SDI inputs and thanks to the AtomHDR engine’s combination of 10+ stops dynamic range, 1500nit brightness and 10-bit colour processing you can monitor the HDR Log with vivid, natural colours.
Your LOG camera is now HDR. Shoot video the way you intended and capture directly to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD. Edit responsive 220 Mbps clips inside the timeline and push your grade further with the 10-bit colour space. From the core, every feature has been designed with professionals in mind focusing on improving the performance and capability of your camera.
The perfect partner for DSLR and Mirror-less cameras with Log output over HDMI. From gimbal operators to Corporate to Indy filmmakers, your recordings are instantly upgraded to the de facto standard for Hollywood, Indie & Broadcasters (ProRes and DNxHR), ensuring you’re not technically rejected in Post and letting you see the detail of your camera’s Log on set with natural colours on the calibrated 7″ AtomHDR High Bright monitor.
Recording 4K 60p within the camera might seem enough but recording with the wrong codec restricts flexibility in post and even risks having your footage technically rejected. Ninja Inferno records direct from the sensor as full individual frames just like film to 4K 60p Apple Pro-Res or Avid DNxHR with 10-bit colour information and precise yet efficient 4:2:2 colour encoding.
Record like a Ninja! 1″ thin, 11oz lit – 2.5cm thin, 320g lite. A stealthy, 5-inch, 4Kp60 10bit HDR daylight view-able 1000nit portable monitor/recorder. Perfect for Mirrorless, DSLRs and Gaming.
…with leading manufacturer and developer brands like Apple, Adobe & AVID to create add-on camera touchscreens for Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, Arri, JVC & Red to improve quality, reduce production costs and save time in the end-to end workflow.
Atomos have redefined what monitors and recorders can do by merging what was a separate feature set for Recording, Playback, Monitoring & Editing into a single device that makes every camera a professional camera.
Every camera records, however the internal recording often isn’t suitable in professional applications. Atomos overcome many of the limitations professionals face with their camera.
With a single connection, video professionals add recording direct from the camera sensor to Hollywood-ready formats like Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHR onto affordable & high capacity HDD/SSD media.
Along side professional recording, the calibrated touchscreen is an audio and video monitor with an array of shot setup scopes and a playback device with on-board controls for instant shot review, tagging and play-out to larger monitors, making it a Swiss army knife for Production, Post-production & Digital signage.
SHOOT HDR WITH LOG CAMERAS
AtomHDR image processing lets you shoot with the high brightness range of your camera’s Log profile while maintaining vibrant true-to-life colours. Conventional monitors lack this capability, displaying the brightness detail of Log but with a washed out image that makes judging exposure difficult. Be at the forefront of the HDR revolution by having a field monitor capable of resolving HDR in the field as you see it in Post Production and record the original Log image direct from the sensor for HDR grading in post production.
