Best of all,
Ninja CAST is simple and easy to use — you don’t need to be a video professional
to achieve great-looking results.
Broadcast features for everyone
Atomos Ninja CAST is a fully functional stand-alone switcher, multiview monitor,
and broadcast quality recorder that does not require a computer to function.
With a high-quality 5” HDR touchscreen monitor, 4 x HDMI inputs, and physical
buttons, the Ninja CAST is the ultimate portable live switching & streaming
Adding Ninja CAST to your production arsenal also gives you the
multi-award winning Ninja V – the ultimate 5″ HDR monitor recorder. As an
on-camera monitor, the Ninja V records up to 5.9Kp60 ProRes RAW, provides
accurate HDR and LOG>PQ/HLG monitoring, and more.
Simple Switching & Streaming
The flexible control options of Ninja CAST allow you to use either the
touchscreen or the physical buttons to ‘switch’ between sources to select the
output for your WebCAST or BroadCAST. The illuminated buttons for each input and
colored LED lighting for Program and Preview status further simplify operation
and allow you to easily switch & livestream in dimly lit environments.
Having an integrated monitor allows you to see the incoming signals as a
multiview display, without having to connect an additional monitor. With the
Ninja V docked into the AtomX CAST, you can utilize its high-quality 5”
touchscreen for setup and the monitor-assist tools for exposure, focus, and
image analysis for optimizing your shots. In the single input view, Ninja CAST
also offers all the same essential monitor assist tools available from your
Ninja to allow you to nail exposure and focus on individual inputs.
Enhance your brand, your video, and your reach
Sophisticated features like logos, masthead graphics, and lower-third titles
will make your productions look incredible, and the dedicated controls for these
functions make them easy to use. Add custom graphics for branding your content,
with support for transparency, sponsors’ logos, and other on-screen information
to your production, and configure the layout on the Ninja touchscreen.
One of the benefits of using Ninja CAST with a multi-camera setup is that you
can use the Picture-in-Picture function to display two inputs at the same time.
Any of the four HDMI inputs can be used for a Picture-in-Picture effect over the
program output with controls for the size and location of the overlayed image.
You can display a close-up of a product on your desk and display your face as a
Picture-in-Picture at the same time whilst you talk about the product.
Stand out from the crowd
Using Ninja CAST with a camera that has a clean HDMI output and your choice of
the lens allows you to bring professional production values to any online video
stream or meeting. Bring a cinematic look that is dramatically different from
the image and impact of your message, putting yourself ahead of the crowd
relying on an average webcam. Utilize the tool in the Ninja V to check your
light, camera angles, and sound, and you will soon be making professional
quality video productions. Many older HD camcorders or photo cameras can output
great-looking video via their HDMI port, bringing new life to the equipment you
may already own and letting multi-camera enhance your productions.
Recording and Codec options
With professional 10-bit 4:2:2 inputs, you get broadcast quality switching and
the ability to record in broadcast quality codecs like Apple ProRes or Avid DNx.
AtomX CAST can deliver to a worldwide audience by sending a stream to your
favorite streaming host, output a broadcast-quality video signal to a local
display, digital signage, or video wall, and record with high-quality edit-ready
