AtomX CAST Expansion Module brings
simple and versatile 4x HDMI switching to the Ninja V and Ninja V+
The combination of the Ninja V or Ninja V+ and AtomX CAST becomes the Ninja CAST, which
is an all-in-one live switching and streaming solution – that combines the Ninja V’s high quality 5” touchscreen monitor with 4x HDMI inputs and physical buttons.
Ninja CAST appears as a high-quality webcam, so it works immediately with all video applications like Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype as a UVC input without a need to install drivers on the computer. Overlay logos, mast head graphics, lower third titles and picture-in-picture will make your productions look incredible. You can utilise its high quality 5” touchscreen for setup and monitor-assist tools for exposure, focus and image analysis for optimising your shots. Then switch to multiview to see all four inputs at once, complete with audio level monitoring.
The New Atomos Shinobi 7 is here
Atomos is proud to announce the New Atomos Shinobi 7. The new big, bright and beautiful monitor-only provides the expansive screen real estate of the large 7” screen with the lightweight Monitor-only function of the original Atomos Shinobi.
Shinobi 7 offers a bigger and brighter screen and takes the foundations of the original Shinobi to the next level. With a calibrated peak brightness of 2200nits, the Shinobi 7 can be used in the brightest of environments without the need for a sun hood or for conversion of Log inputs for HDR
Welcoming new members to the
Atomos Ninja Family
Atomos is thrilled to announce that it is expanding the Ninja family, with two exciting new Ninja products and a major update for Ninja V! Ninja V receives the option for H.265 codec upgrade, Ninja V+ – is built for Apple ProRes RAW 8K productions, and Ninja Stream – 4Kp60 HDR for a high-quality social distancing production
The Ninja V+ and Ninja V+ Pro Kit deliver high quality accurate monitoring and extended recording capabilities for your camera of choice. Delivering support for continuous recording of 8Kp30 and 4Kp120 in Apple ProRes RAW adding to the great workflow of Ninja V.
The Atomos Ninja V Pro Kit
Designed to bridge the gap between compact cinema and mirrorless cameras that can output Apple ProRes RAW via HDMI or SDI. Pro Kit also pushes these cameras’ limits, recording up to 12-bit RAW externally on the Ninja’s onboard SSD. Additionally, Pro Kit provides the ability to cross covert signals providing a versatile solution for monitoring and playout/review.
The Pro Kit includes the Ninja V, AtomX SDI with activation for the new RAW functionality, HDMI to SDI cross conversion, along with the locking DC to Dtap cable to power from the camera’s battery. It also includes the AtomX 5″ Sunhood, offering a monitor and recording package to cover a wide range of workflows.
The Ninja V’s compact 5″ 1000nit screen is designed to provide a foundation for scalability and modularity. Combined with the AtomX SDI module and some serious tuning under the hood the Pro Kit provides the ability to record RAW via SDI* from some of the best compact cinema cameras on the market.
Atomos is delighted to announce RAW recording support for the Sony PXW-FX9 camcorder with full-frame sensor, which will soon output RAW over SDI in a variety of frame rates up to DCI 4Kp60 and up to DCI 2Kp180. Initially the Atomos Shogun 7 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 the maximum latitude for 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. 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 (via XDCA-FX9) will be enabled via V2.0 firmware update for the FX9 from Sony planned in October 2020. At the same time there will be a free AtomOS firmware download for the Shogun 7 to allow FX9 RAW recording.
Atomos and Panasonic have today made the dream of ultra-high resolution RAW video from a full-frame mirrorless camera a reality. The two companies have announced updates to the award-winning Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder and Panasonic LUMIX S1H that together record 5.9K Apple ProRes RAW files direct from the camera’s sensor. The result is the best video we’ve ever seen from a mirrorless camera.
Simply stunning 12-bit RAW
The Ninja V captures highly detailed 12-bit RAW files from the S1H over HDMI at up to 5.9K/29.97p in Full-frame, or 4K/59.94p in Super35. These unprocessed files are extremely clean, preserving the maximum dynamic range, color accuracy and every detail from the S1H. The resulting ProRes RAW files allow for greater creativity in post production with perfect skin tones and easily matched colors, ideal for both HDR and SDR (Rec.709) workflows.
Ninja V and S1H owners will gain these new RAW features free of charge. The Ninja V will be able to update by downloading and installing AtomOS 10.5 from the Atomos website. Panasonic will release a free firmware update on their LUMIX GLOBAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT WEBSITE. Both updates will be available on 25 May, 2020.
Atomos have released the revolutionary RAW over HDMI recording solution for the Ninja V HDR monitor/recorder when combined with the Nikon Z 6 or Z 7 mirrorless cameras. The transformative innovation frees users from the choice between mirrorless features but lower video quality, or full-frame RAW cinema cameras with a budget-busting price tag.
In particular, the Z 6 and Ninja V combination will allow users to experience the full quality and flexibility of RAW video shooting with a full-frame sensor, recording in stunning 12-bit 4K UHD resolution. Together they form an affordable state-of-the-art cinema setup – which is also the first at any price to feature full-frame RAW video with in-body image stabilisation, opening up new possibilities for shooting handheld RAW video.
ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW files which simplifies and accelerates file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Final Cut Pro X along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight, and Grass Valley Edius.
Ninja V users can now update with the free AtomOS 10.2 to enable RAW recording from HDMI
Four camera channels/feeds can be simultaneously recorded as a separate ISOs in either Apple ProRes or Avid DNx to the same high performance SSD drive – ready to edit moments after the shoot has finished.
Choose to view the four camera angles at once in a quad-view, or a full-screen view of any one of the four input streams. Use the touch screen to accurately cut back and forth between up to four live HD SDI video streams at up to 1080p60. You can output this switched program feed via HDMI and/or SDI for streaming or broadcast, as well as recording it as a fifth channel on the same SSD.
All input switches are recorded in metadata with a choice of transition type. Once you’ve finished capturing your streams, simply import the resulting Apple Final Cut XML file along with your ISOs into your NLE and the timeline automatically populates with all the transitions in place.
The result provides creators with creative advantages and the convenience of having multiple, synchronised camera angles with transitions in place when they come to craft the story in the edit suite.
Atomos Neon Will Have 16bit RAW Support from the New Sony PXW-FX9
“We have a long and proud history of collaborating with revolutionary companies like Sony, we are working closely with the FX9 camera team to deliver 4K 16bit RAW from the FX9 to our Neon cinema monitor-recorders.”Jeromy Young, Atomos Co-founder and CEO
Announcing the new Atomos Shogun 7 – 7″ HDR Pro/Cinema Monitor-Recorder-Switcher
Atomos Shogun 7 is a precision HDR monitor-recorder-switcher designed for the film and video professional. It can be used as either a stand-alone field monitor, recorder and switcher for event, documentary and live in-the-field storytelling; or as a tool for large-scale on-set episodic TV, film and cinema productions where multiple crew members such as focus pullers, grips and cinematographers require a consistent visual reference across the field monitor ecosystem.
Shogun 7’s portable size lets you monitor, analyse and tag while on set; and check how your content will look in your audience’s home via real-time Dolby Vision output. With Shogun 7 you’re not locked into any format, camera manufacturer or pipeline. It is a completely flexible master recording and production station.
When 1500nits isn’t enough…
There is a nit war taking place (apparently) and Atomos intend to win it. Secreted away inside their recently released Shogun 7 Monitor/Recorder/Switcher was a secret weapon waiting to be unleashed on an unsuspecting industry… with the flick of a switch (free software upgrade), Atomos unveil a maximum 3000nits of brightness on the already stunning 7″ HDR screen!
At IBC 2019, Atomos are also showing off two previously promised features for Shogun 7 – Touch and Switch 5 Stream Switching and Dolby Vision Playout – both due later this month. With Shogun 7 you’re not locked into any format, camera manufacturer or pipeline. It is a completely flexible master recording and production station.
