Take control with Ninja V
Control your workflow
Behind the stunning screen, Ninja V’s advanced computing power adds production grade recording to your camera. Flexibility is the foundation for every feature of this production workhorse. Ninja V records in a wide range of codecs: Apple ProRes, ProRes RAW, Avid DNx and H.265 (HEVC) to enable wide compatibility across camera types and edit software, giving you a new degree of creative control long before you press record.
H.265 Recording for Ninja V available now
The H.265 codec adds even more versatility to the Ninja V, by adding a high-quality compressed codec option for recording. Also known as high-efficiency video coding (HEVC), the H.265 codec is used for the final delivery of high quality video projects with very small file sizes. HEVC was specifically created to provide support for UHD HDR deliverables with wide color gamuts, and enables you to easily share and allow play back of HDR content on a wide range of devices.
RAW over SDI Activation
Ninja V owners can now benefit from the ability to record RAW over SDI with compatible cameras using the AtomX SDI Module.
These new features bring even more versatility to the Ninja V, providing professional I/O options for a multitude of cameras – from entry level mirrorless cameras through to the latest compact cinema and high-end professional cameras.

Universally popular, Ninja V ticks more boxes for more filmmakers than any other 5” monitor on the market. And it will only get better. The Ninja V’s features continue to improve and evolve with every new AtomOS release. Not only will additional ProRes RAW capable cameras be supported, other new features are constantly been added for free.
Recent additions include a wider range of frame guides (1:1, 4:5, 1:91:1 and 9:16) – perfect for social media content creation. A nine-grid overlay makes composing using the rule of thirds easy. The addition of an ARRI style false color scale bolsters Ninja V’s impressive professional credentials.
Break through the recording time barrier
Shooting 4K and above in advanced formats like ProRes, DNx and ProRes RAW requires storage media with ample volume, fast transfer times and high, sustained read and write speeds.
AtomX SSDmini drives complete the Ninja V’s digital workflow. Smaller than conventional SATA SSDs they are an affordable professional alternative to recording to a camera’s internal memory cards. Offering up to 2TB storage, a sequential read speed of up to 550MB/s and write speed up to 500MB/s, these drives can record up to 150 minutes of 4K ProRes on a single drive. Measuring 8cm long, 7.5cm wide and weighing as little as 88g, the custom built drives neatly fit the Ninja V’s compact proportions.
AtomX CAST is a modular companion for the Atomos Ninja V or Ninja V+ monitor-recorder that uses the AtomX expansion port on the Ninja V/V+ to transform it into an advanced multi-input switcher. The combination of the Ninja V and AtomX CAST becomes the Ninja CAST, a fully functional stand-alone switcher, Multiview monitor and broadcast quality recorder that does not require a computer to function. With a high quality 5” HDR touchscreen monitor, 4 x HDMI inputs and physical buttons, the Ninja CAST is the ultimate portable live switching and streaming solution.
Broadcast features for everyone
AtomX CAST is for video creators and anybody who wants to make broadcast quality multi-camera programs simply and quickly from anywhere. It is also for anyone that wants to add professional broadcast quality features to their online meetings, presentations, remote learning/training, virtual conferences, demonstrations or engaging corporate videos. Best of all, CAST is simple and easy to ease — you don’t need to be a video professional to achieve great looking results.
The flexible control options allow you to use either the touchscreen or the physical buttons to ‘switch’ between sources when deciding what should be on screen at any one time for broadcast. The illuminated buttons for each input and coloured LED lighting for Program and Preview status allow you to operate the CAST in dimly lit environments.
Connect any full HD video source
Connect mirrorless or DSLR cameras, video cameras, computers, consoles or even pre-recorded content via HDMI. There’s no need to worry about synchronization, as you can mix and match frame rates up to 60p, as well as interlaced and progressive HD sources automatically.
With the Ninja V/V+ docked in, the AtomX CAST connects via USB-C to your computer and appears as a high-quality webcam. Plug and play allows it to work immediately with all your video applications like Zoom, Teams and Skype without the need to install drivers on the computer first. Add up to 4 camera inputs to bring your presentation or meeting to the next level.
Having an integrated monitor allows you to see the incoming signals as a Multiview display, without having to connect an additional monitor. With the Ninja V/V+ docked into the AtomX CAST you can utilize its high quality 5” touchscreen for setup and the monitor-assist tools for exposure, focus and image analysis for optimizing your shots. Then switch to Multiview to see all four inputs at once, complete with audio level monitoring. Ninja CAST also offers all the same essential features available from your Ninja to allow you to nail exposure and focus on individual inputs.
Enhance your brand, your video and your reach
Sophisticated features like logos, mast head graphics and lower third titles will make your productions look incredible, and the dedicated controls for these functions make them easy to use. Add custom graphics for branding your content, with support for transparency, sponsors’ logos and other on-screen information to your production and configure the layout on the Ninja touchscreen.
One of the benefits of using CAST with a multi-camera setup, is that you can use the Picture-in-Picture function to display two inputs at the same time. Any of the four HDMI inputs can be used for a Picture-in-Picture effect over any other input with controls for size and location of the overlayed image. You can display a close-up of a product on your desk and display your face as a picture in picture at the same time, whilst you talk about the product.
Configurable and adaptable
Since AtomX CAST is so compact and versatile, users can easily work alone or with a team to enhance their productions. Solo operators can transport the Ninja CAST in a small backpack and then use it discretely with compact mirrorless cameras for productions of any size. For larger setups, the Ninja V/V+ HDMI output can be used as a secondary output that can be set up as a duplicate program out, preview monitoring for the crew or talent, or to connect to a larger Multiview display.
Ready for Advanced Workflows
AtomX CAST connected to a Ninja V/V+ is a fully functional stand-alone switcher, but you can also use it with a computer for more advanced video work. In this mode, AtomX CAST and Ninja V/V+ does the heavy lifting, taking the load off your computer and reducing the likelihood of software crashes with dedicated external video processing.
Simply add AtomX CAST as a media source in OBS, X-Split and VMix to make use of the software application’s additional graphics and scene configuration while using the CAST for video input switching.
Broadcast Quality Switching and Recording
Recording and Codec options
With professional 10-bit 4:2:2 inputs, you get broadcast quality switching, as well as the ability to record in broadcast quality codecs like Apple ProRes or Avid DNx.
Built in versatility
AtomX CAST can deliver to a worldwide audience by sending a stream to your favourite streaming host, output a broadcast quality video signal to a local display, digital signage or video wall, and record with high quality edit-ready video codecs
Stand out from the crowd
Using Ninja CAST with a decent camera and almost any suitable lens gives you a professional broadcasting solution with incredible picture quality. You can set a shallow depth of field and create a cinematic look that is dramatically different from the image you get from your average webcam. Pay attention to lighting, camera angles and sound, and you will soon be making professional quality video productions. Even an older HD camcorder can output great looking video through its HDMI port, which means that you probably already have cameras for a multi-camera production.
