Key Features:

Ninja Assassin extends the Atomos Ninja line up in to the realm of 4K UHD and 1080 60p. Combining professional 4K-UHD/HD recording, 7" 1920x1080 monitoring, advanced playback and editing in a compact, affordable add-on to existing DSLR, Mirrorless and HDMI cameras. Weighing in at only 430g (15oz) the Ninja Assassin is a lightweight addition to any DSLR, gimbal or drone application. The rigid ABS polycarbonate structure is further protected by the included Armour Bumper, making the Ninja Assassin the ideal go-anywhere monitor-recorder solution.

Unleash your camera's HDMI
The HDMI output is the key to unleashing your camera’s capability, recording pristine footage directly from the camera's sensor to visually lossless Hollywood quality Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR codecs.

Monitor & record audio as well
Up to 8 channels of audio over HDMI or analogue audio over the additional 3.5mm input allows connectivity from analogue mixers or microphones locked frame accurately to your video. The versatility of the Ninja Assassin for recording, monitoring, playback and editing means that it caters to many different creative professionals.

Assassinate MPEG limitations
Bypass the highly compressed internal MPEG / h.264 compression from the camera increasing colour accuracy (with 4:2:2 color sampling) and colour resolution with 10-bit colour (1 Billion Colours). The edit ready Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHR video files created by Ninja Assassin are visually lossless with each frame being captured in full resolution (I frame recording) just like film.

4K recording at HD prices
Harness the power of 2.5" computer storage media, making 4K-UHD the same cost as affordable HD today. Record 3 hours of 4K ProRes 422 HQ @ 25 fps on a 1TB SSD, or 10 hours in HD. Atomos have teamed up with the major media brands to ensure availability and reliability you know and trust.

Workflow scenarios:

For Photographers
The Ninja Assassin is the perfect tool to fast track experienced photographers into the world of video. A single HDMI cable connection to your DSLR or mirrorless camera is all it takes to deliver high quality visually lossless video, longer record times well in excess of the traditional DSLR 30min barrier & precision shot setup with easy to use scopes & a simple one touch user interface on the 7" colour calibrated monitor.

For Corporate Video
Corporate video teams need to more with less. The Ninja Assassin replaces the need for a separate external recorder, video monitor, audio recorder and playback deck by combining them all in one device. Apart from the obvious cost savings, having less equipment on the rig makes interviews less imposing and more natural and setup time significantly less. Having the 7" screen makes shot setup easy but additionally makes reviewing with in house stakeholders easy as well. With the shoot complete, dock and drop the media into either your Mac or PC and start editing in Apple, Adobe, Avid or your choice of NLE software.

For Gamers
Gaming TV is one of the fastest growing video channels but currently limited to h.264 recording. The Ninja Assassin allows for recording of high frame rate HD up to 120p or 4K-UHD up to 30p in improved 4:2:2 10-bit quality from graphics cards and game consoles. A separate input for audio recording allows for live commentary to be mixed with the video, tagging on the fly ensures the highlights can be easily picked up during editing and long record times lets the action continue without missing anything in the recording.
