Atomos Ninja HD HDD recorder with Apple ProRes Codec and HDMI i/o

Atomos Ninja HD broadcast quality HDD / SSD portable recorder with HDMI i/o

Simple Operation. Rugged, Portable Design
The Ninja is simple to use, rugged and portable.

There are no fiddly buttons, just a crisp, high-resolution touch screen monitor. Ninja has just FOUR main functions: Record, Stop, Monitor and Play. That's about as simple as it can get! The user interface is designed for one-touch operation with every function clearly visible and accessible

The Ninja uses ordinary, low cost 2.5 Notebook HDD or SSD hard drives. These are housed securely inside the Atomos Master Caddy, which locks inside the Ninja. The drives are hot swappable, which means inserting new drives on the fly is a snap.

Using tried and tested storage guarantees performance and reliability. A 750GB/5400rpm drive holds 8 hours of high quality Apple ProRes footage! Spinning HDDs are for everyday use, in normal conditions, while solid-state SSDs can be used in more rugged locations.

The Ninja is designed to sit silently on or near the camera or camera operator, so it's small, light yet tough. Made from lightweight, high-grade aluminium, the connectors, storage and batteries are all easily accessible. Line level audio provides higher quality audio than most cameras offer, and the 1/4 headphone out allows for audio monitoring level adjustment. We included a LANC loop too to ensure that the Ninja can be operated remotely.

Post Production Quality, 10-Bit Recording
The Ninja implements Apple ProRes in hardware to give you real-time, 10-bit recording anytime, anywhere. It takes advantage of low cost, modern technology by utilising HDMI capable pro video and consumer camcorders as well as DSLRs. Record directly to the Ninja on location in super high quality, for the most streamlined, affordable Final Cut Pro workflow available today.

Continuous, Hot-Swappable Power
Powering video devices on location or away from studio environments can be a problem. We decided that two batteries were better than one and designed a unique Active/Passive Dual Battery system that means you need never run out of juice on a shoot. When the active battery is depleted, Ninja automatically switches to the fully-charged passive battery. You can simply swap batteries on the fly without affecting operation, and we include two batteries with every Ninja!

A Pipeline To Your Timeline
The Ninja's tight Apple ProRes integration means recorded footage is instantly and natively editable in Final Cut Pro. No need to waste time transcoding or converting from other camera formats. We use standard computer connections: FireWire 800, USB 2/3 or e-SATA to give you total flexibility when connecting to your MacBook, iMac or MacPro. Simply insert your Master Caddy into the Master Caddy Dock provided and you are editing instantly. You can also, of course, transfer the footage to your central SAN or LAN.
