Atomos outs Ninja and Samurai devices for pro video and Atomos Ninja and Samurai HD video recorder / monitors bring compression jutsu to pro filmmaking.Ninja is a portable touchscreen Professional 10bit HD Recorder, Monitor and Playback device that captures pristine video and audio direct from any camera with a clean HDMI output………


Atomos announce the second of its industry-transforming external Apple ProRes video recorders, the HD-SDI-equipped SamuraiSamurai packs masses of power into a rugged, portable device that records, monitors and instantly plays back ready-to-edit, visually-lossless Apple Pro Res files: all for only $1,500 USD. Samurai, as well as Atomos’ original Ninja will be demonstrated at the National Association of Broadcasters.Hidden inside Samurai‘s compact design is a hardware implementation of the Apples ProRes codec; a bit-perfect rendition of Apple’s professional compression system that’s designed to leave your final images looking as good as when they first hit your camera’s sensor.


Atomos‘ unique battery-looping technology means that you never have to interrupt a Samurai recording to swap power cells. Just unplug the old battery and replace it with a fully charged one.Samurai makes it easy to get video off your camera and onto your computer, with FireWire 800, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 interfaces built in. Apple ProRes works natively with Final Cut Pro and on any computer with the Apple ProRes codec installed (including suitably configured PCs).Samurai is simple to use as well, with a no-nonsense, intuitive, high-resolution touchscreen that doubles as a viewfinder and playback monitor.Better quality from your camcorder. Infinite cheap storage. No worries about battery life. Ideal for everything from older HD-SDI camcorders to large-sensor digital cinematography cameras, Samurai transforms the way you work with video.Samurai will be available Summer 2011 at $1495 USD.


“Samurai is a truly revolutionary new weapon for the video production professional. With visually-lossless recording to inexpensive removable media at the camera and a long battery life, you can think of it as a new “back end” to every SDI and HD-SDI camera, new and old,” said Jeromy Young, Atomos CEO . “We’re starting to see video cameras that compete with 35mm film technology at affordable prices, and yet they’re crippled by the harsh compression necessary to squeeze HD video onto miniaturised on-camera storage. Samurai releases the potential of these incredible new cameras as well as older obsolete cameras, and brings cinema-quality video.”
