ATOMOS CONNECT is the ultimate accessory for the NINJA V/ NINJAV+ and represents a profound shift in the way we conceive of devices for monitoring and recording. The ATOMOS CONNECT fits to the back of the NINJA V/V+ and features a 12G SDI input, ATOMOS AirGlu™ wireless sync timecode technology which enables direct, long-range communication between devices, multiple power options to accommodate a variety of on-set scenarios, plus Wi-Fi 6, Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth LE capabilities for flexible connections. When attached to the NINJA V/ V+, the ATOMOS CONNECT transforms professional cinema, mirrorless, and DSLR cameras into fully connected devices that support a range of advanced cloud-based workflows.
With the ATOMOS CONNECT accessory the NINJA V/V+ can livestream to a range of online services including, Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube. With Wi-Fi 6, Gigabit Ethernet, and the ability to join cellular hotspots all built-in, the ATOMOS CONNECT helps filmmakers, streamers and video content producers reach their audience from anywhere.
ATOMOS CONNECT is fully integrated as a Frame.io Camera to Cloud (C2C) device. Through support of HDMI and SDI equipped cameras, the device offers advanced online workflows and remote collaboration to many more filmmakers, streamers, and video content creators. With Frame.io for Adobe Creative Cloud now part of the Creative Cloud subscription, even more filmmakers will have access to cloud-based workflows.
Frame.io C2C brings the domains of production and post closer together, enabling new ways for remote teams to collaborate. The dual record feature of the ATOMOS CONNECT for NINJA V/V+ creates “hero” Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHR/HD (or ProRes RAW on the NINJA V+) and “proxy” HEVC (H.265) files with matching timecode and metadata. Proxy files can also be uploaded during capture using ATOMOS progressive transfer technology so that the proxy clip is available in the cloud as soon as recording stops.
The built-in SDI and HDMI interfaces allow the ATOMOS CONNECT to support a comprehensive range of professional cinema, DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The device also features ATOMOS AirGlu™ wireless sync technology which enables direct, long-range communication between devices and provides a robust timecode lock.
ATOMOS CONNECT enables filmmakers, streamers, and video content producers of every kind to share their work with an audience from anywhere, easily, and seamlessly. ATOMOS CONNECT allows customers to work with any HDMI or SDI camera using a choice of connections. Regardless of the camera chosen, content creators can easily create a multi-camera setup where all devices are locked with wireless synchronised timecode.
After an absence of three years, the NAB Show is back with a rash of signature product launches. It’s probably no coincidence that the past 36 months have seen little in the way of innovation in the broadcast and professional video industry, apart from a slew of mirrorless cameras. The unstoppable force that is the engineer needs the immovable object – the trade show – to get the creative juices flowing it would seem.
