The Atomos Ninja 2 Video Recorder provides top quality recording but also features monitoring functions that help assess exposure, focus and calibration. Also available are intuitive signal detection and file management tools. All tasks are performed in an advanced yet simple touch screen operating environment.

Recording is at 10-bit 4:2:2 quality, in ProRes or DNxHD, directly onto HDD or SSD drives. Input and output are both by HDMI and an optional converter can be used to capture by SDI. Various serial control options include managing multiple Ninjas via an iPad over the web.

Designed compact and robust, and affording a workflow beyond just capture and output, Ninja can serve companion-like on and off the set. Also noteworthy is the Atomos history. Atomos recorders have been used, for example, in James Cameron's Deep Sea Challenge.

Ninja comes with a load of accessories including two batteries and two SDD/HDD enclosures.

The Ninja-2 takes any uncompressed HD or SD source and encodes it in real-time to 10-bit, 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD at up to 220Mbps.

Because Ninja is portable, it can record from the ultimate image source, the sensor of the camera.

Recording is always in 10-bit, even from an 8-bit source. Colour registries are added for integration into higher bit-depth graphics from CG, animation and special effects. This avoids banding and makes editing and grading, in fact any precision effect, more accurate.
