Atomos Enables RAW Over SDI from the Ninja V

The ubiquitous Atomos Ninja V monitor/recorder just became a much better and more versatile recording device with the Ninja V Pro Kit. Designed to bridge the gap between compact cinema and mirrorless cameras, the Pro Kit enables output Apple ProRes RAW via HDMI or SDI on the Ninja V.

Additionally, the Pro Kit allows users to cross convert signals providing a versatile solution for monitoring and playout/review. You can convert DCI cropped and 4K video signals to HD, thus providing a bridge between equipment such as EVFs, wireless TX/RX without the need for additional devices and cumbersome setups.

The Atomos 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.

By adding dual 12G SDI connectivity, Ninja V’s compatibility expands with other cameras to provide offboard 10-bit 422 recording in edit-ready codecs or as proxy files from RED or ARRI cameras allowing the file naming and timecode from the camera to also be carried via SDI to the recorded files.

Of course, the Ninja V also provides support for RAW over HDMI from Atomos’ ever-growing roster of mirrorless cameras including the Sony Alpha 7S III, Z CAM E-2 Series, Nikon Z-Series, Lumix S Series, Olympus OM-D EM-1X, Olympus OM-D M1 MkIII, just to name a few.

Furthermore, in playback mode, the Ninja V provides a lossless signal distribution with 2 x 12G SDI and 1 x HDMI 2.0 for simultaneous outputs up to 4K p60.

RAW inputs can also be de-bayered in real-time and non-standard high resolutions are processed to SMPTE standard output formats. Conversion to HLG, PQ or your choice of 3D LUT can also be applied allowing for RAW or LOG content to be viewed with the correct application of artistic intent.

With the Pro Kit, you can power the Ninja V using the included DC power supply, via the included DTAP cable or run it directly from an optional NPF battery or any 4-cell NPF you might have in your kit bag. While the setup offers a complete bundle, existing Ninja V users can buy a particular individual part of the kit separately.
