ATOMNJA003 - General Description

The Atomos Ninja 2 is a 10-bit digital field recorder, with HDMI input and output, as well as support for the new AtomOS 3.0. 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. The Ninja-2 also replaces your current monitor with sharper images, better direct sunlight performance, loop play and professional monitoring tools such as Focus Peaking. Record your footage to inexpensive 2.5" hard disk drives: a 750GB/5400rpm drive holds up to 16 hours of high quality Apple ProRes ® footage.

SmartControl - Control individual, or multiple, Ninja-2 field recorders, in any combination via serial control from a deck, PC, Mac, or iPad/iPhone.

SmartMonitor - Accurately assess focus and exposure with focus peaking, adjustable zebra, false colour twin mode, blue only exposure check, and individual filter control.

SmartLog - Log in and out points on your footage and tag these clips with keywords.

AtomOS 3.0 - The real power of the Ninja-2 comes from AtomOS, our innovative and intuitive operating system.

One-touch Navigation - Allows for simple operation – everything is one touch away.

Audio Input Level Meters + Headphone Line Out Volume - Touch audio meters to adjust 4 channels of audio. 8 channel HDMI audio support coming this summer
