Ninja Blade: Overview
Introducing the NINJA Blade Superatom IPSpPanel

Atomos Ninja Blade  
 

Sharp, Bright Deep Colours just like your Phone and Tablet
The new Atomos Ninja Blade offers a stunning 1280 x 720 5” SuperAtom IPS touchscreen, at 325ppi 179-degree viewing, 400nit brightness and multi-frequency (48/50/60Hz) operation, you can expect crisp, super smooth monitoring and playback.

The capacitive touch panel gives lightning-quick response times and gesture capability. Controlling AtomOS 5.1 on Ninja Blade is silky smooth.

The Atomos Ninja Blade is the world’s most advanced smart production recorder, monitor and playback deck. Every part of its physical and operational design has been carefully crafted to deliver the ultimate in simple operation and mission critical reliability. The Atomos Ninja Blade combines multiple devices – external monitor, capture card, playback deck and cut edit suite – into a single affordable tool. It’s lightweight, tough and robust for operation in the field.

 

Features
10-BIT 4:2:2 QUALITY FOR THE MASSES

Your affordable DSLR or camcorder is ripping the life out of your sensor with MPEG 420 8-bit recording. Increase the quality of any camera to professional edit friendly codecs – the files are large and the result amazing, only Atomos Ninja Blade deliver the ultimate in quality recording to the masses.

So why record 10-bit from the sensor of a camera, if it's 8-bit? Well, if you want to edit, use CG or 3D effects, green screen or add titles and transitions, these will all be crushed to 8 bit. We bypass the 8-bit and record 10-bit color registries to ensure your video plays nicely with all computer effects.

Atomos Ninja Blade

POWERFUL MONITOR AND TEST SUITE
Packed into the light and mobile camera-mountable Atomos Ninja Blade are all the essential tools you need to set up on-site accurate colors and exposure including full waveform monitor functions - Vectorscope, RGB and LUMA parades. Each provides an intuitive transparent interface offering full screen, lower 3rd or bottom right corner positioning to give you a range of options when setting up, recording and playing back your shot.

CONSTRUCTION
Designed using aircraft grade aluminium, the Atomos Ninja Blade delivers durability and portability. Locking mechanisms for each removable part means sturdy reliable operation. Weighing a mere 380 grams this pocket rocket will never weigh you down and is completely at home on top of any camera, whether in the studio or up a mountain.

COMPLETELY CUSTOM
We don’t believe in jigsaw-puzzling a best of breed product, we have designed every circuit, coded every function and invested thousands of hours in testing, quality control, design and manufacturing. We do not buy standard IP cores like codecs, we do not lease HDMI/SDI interfaces – we write everything from scratch to deliver you a finely tuned thoroughbred video machine!

UNBELIEVABLY LOW POWER CONSUMPTION
Consuming just 6 watts of power – that’s nearly five times less than the nearest competitor - the Atomos Ninja Blade is perfect for battery-powered, in-the-field operation. Boasting no less than 4 power options, including the supplied NP series battery, DC power adapter for larger batteries, AC mains power and our patented Continuous Power dual battery system. You’ll never be without power when you need it most.

AFFORDABLE 2.5” HDD OR SSD
2.5” hard disks are the most affordable digital storage on the planet. They outperform SSDs, SD card, SxS and P2 cards in terms of cost and reliability for video use. In normal video shooting environments the 2.5” HDD is your new tape. Extremely low running costs, long record times (up to 30 hours) and limitless supply. For those vibration sensitive shoots, around the racetrack or in the helicopter, we of course support modern SSDs.

ATOM OS5
Like our hardware, the OS used on Atomos products is smart. It’s lightning-fast, simple to operate and robust. It encompasses all aspects of video production, from recording, to playback and review, monitoring assist and even simple cut and tag editing. AtomOS gives us the flexibility to deliver regular functionality improvements and operational enhancements to our existing users. For example, new to AtomOS 5 is alpha channel and transparency support, full waveform monitor RGB parade and Luma overlay display, and vectorscope with zoom (AtomOS 5 only available for the Blade series).

RECORD DIRECT FROM THE SENSOR
Direct from the sensor – the best quality from your great lens and sensor, no matter when it was made. Old and new cameras alike can get the benefit of higher quality recording, enhancing new cameras and breathing new life into older ones.

SYNCED REC TRIGGER AND TIMECODE
Triggering record and capturing timecode in sync with your camera is essential to smooth production with external devices. We have teamed up with all the leading camera manufacturers, including Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, JVC, RED and Arri to give you frame accurate timecode and start/stop triggers over both SDI and HDMI from almost all cameras. We also added a tally light so everyone knows when it’s show time.

We include LANC and rolling timecode trigger for those older cameras that don’t have start/stop flag protocols on board – we monitor the timecode and trigger record when the camera starts rolling!

EASY TO ENCODE FOR CPU - APPLE PRORES AND AVID DNXHD!

Editing codecs are made for editing video, not delivering video. MPEG is great for finishing and delivery – but not for post-production. We give you post-production quality recording on set.

The codec choice we offer – Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD – gives you universal non-linear editing support. Both are routinely used for film and TV production, as well as ProAV, event and independent film making. We have you covered, on Mac and PC

THE LONGEST RECORDING TIME AROUND
Using HDD up to 1TB means we can record high quality footage, free you from the hassle of changing memory cards and increase the quality of your footage at the same time. A 500GB drive records 5hrs of the highest bit-rate Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD formats. Using Avid 36 you can record up to 60 hrs on a 1TB drive! Flexible and affordable long and short recording, the adaptability you need in the field, on the road and in the studio.

HOT SWAP DRIVES
The way the OS is designed is very intuitive, you can hot-swap drives at any time without having to play games with the OS. Eject and change drives or even take a drive from an edit suite or recorder (even non Atomos ones) and you can play out to any monitor or on screen for review - a true digital deck.

SAFETY FIRST! ATOMOS FILE RECOVERY ON THE FLY!
When recording the last thing you want is to lose the file you have been recording for the past hour, however if you pull the power or remove the disc, even though we have safety latches.. what happens? Well AtomOS is smart. It will detect the broken file from power outage or removal of disc mid record and reconstruct the frames and file to enable you to recover to within 2 frames of the catastrophic event.

This is the peace of mind professionals need.

AUDIO MONITORING
All audio, even analog audio, is locked frame accurately to every video frame, never drifting or losing sync. If the digital audio is out of sync from the camera you can even adjust this on the fly by advancing or delaying the audio coming in – very smart!

With up to 2 channels of digital and 2 of analog audio always available to view and monitor on headphone jacks or line out, audio is taken care of. From mixing desks and line out to XLR adaptor boxes like Beachtek and juicedLink, AtomOS covers all your audio needs.

THE MONITOR THAT THINKS IT’S A RECORDER & DECK!
Professional monitoring & signal testing – recording included for free!

Probably the most surprising thing about AtomOS is that we can add functions traditionally performed by dedicated devices. Monitoring and signal testing is one such function. Essential for creative set up and capturing the perfect shot – monitoring tools define how well you perform on the day. This means monitor assist functions to check exposure and focus are a must.

Atomos Ninja Blade  
 

SHOT SET UP AND SIGNAL TEST TOOLS!
We offer a comprehensive tool set that any test engineer would be proud of – a full waveform monitor, RGB parade display, luma overlay, vectorscope with zoom and test pattern generator for signal calibration. You get focus peaking with multiple levels and colors for ease of use, false color in two modes, zebra 0-100% fully adjustable and blue-only for that quick exposure check!

INSTANT SHOT REVIEW ANYTIME ANYWHERE.
Play back your shots and takes on the fly - on set, in the field in a restaurant or on the plane after the production. Check framing, focus and exposure in any part of the footage with the same powerful tools offered by AtomOS monitor tools. Review each and every shot and take using the Super Atom screen, or to a large monitor for crew and clients to make sure you get what you need.

DIRECTORS CUT AND TAG
AtomOS gives you speedy navigation, cutting and tagging on short and long clips with transport controls and finite frame-by-frame accurate stepping. Cut editing is time consuming and usually done in a studio by the people who weren’t at the shoot. AtomOS lets you rough cut your footage, tag it as Favorite or Reject, then save as a project, ready to finish and polish in the studio. This is a powerful time and money saver and helps collaboration on set.

PLAY APPLE PRORES OR DNXHD FILE FROM ANYWHERE
3rd-party playback support, what it means for you is your Apple ProRes file with 16-bit audio or Avid DNxHD file from any system, recorder or edit suite can be played back using AtomOS – take rushes from the edit suite on the road in a convenient super high quality deck that fits in your hand.

MAC & PC REVIEW
The files can be reviewed by any PC or Mac with QuickTime or the system codec installed. Laptop review is simple even without an editing package installed.

EDIT - DOCK AND PRODUCE!
The coolest part of the process is the instant editing and post production of such large files in one easy step. Simply dock, open your cut footage or any take and you are editing in 10-bit 4:2:2 quality instantly. This really is a pipeline to your timeline. No transcoding, no capturing and no MPEG degradation or 4:2:0 issues.
