Atomos Ninja Inferno
Panasonic GH5/Sony FS7/Panasonic DVX200
The Ninja Inferno unlocks the professional capability of 4Kp60 10-bit cameras,
bypassing the internal recording limitations and taking full advantage of the
sensor by recording to the camera's maximum color accuracy, color resolution and
dynamic range. Monitor and Record HDR or Rec709 up to 4:2:2 10-bit as Log high
bitrate Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR.
Panasonic GH4/Panasonic GH5/Sony FS7
Apart from being an obvious companion for 4Kp60 cameras like the GH5, the Ninja
Inferno is the world’s first HDMI monitor-recorder to accept 4K DCI signals from
cameras like the Panasonic GH5/GH4/DVX200/HCX1000/UX180/HCX1, Sony FS7/Z100 and
the JVC LS300. Support for the 4096 DCI standard unlocks cinema recording from
these 4K video & mirrorless DSLRs.
The Ninja Inferno not only delivers the ultimate solution for 4Kp60 cameras today,
it of course also is a great monitor-recorder match for 4K 30p and HD cameras.
Delivering pristine ProRes recording, HDR monitoring of Log signals, XLR audio
monitoring, a 1500 nit daylight viewable screen and also giving you the peace of
mind of having a future proof solution for years to come.
The Ninja Inferno records from any HDMI source, including Gaming PC's and
consoles, in high frame rate HD and up to 4k 60p. Recording in high bit rate
ProRes fast tracks the efficiency in editing to speed up the turnaround time for
distribution to the internet and by capturing everything in 10-bit the high
quality gaming graphics are preserved and text overlays in editing more seamless.
Playback at Live events is possible to larger 4K or HD screens and the advanced
controls including playlist generation and slow motion will ensure the crowd feels
every crash, punch and explosion.
Grade & Edit
Mac/PC/Laptop & Desktop
The Ninja Inferno is equally adept in the editing suite as it is in the field
with the recorded files dropping directly onto the timeline of all the major NLE
editing and grading software with the HDMI input capable of accepting HDR signals
to make the Ninja Inferno an unbelievably affordable HDR reference monitor for
portable or in studio color grading.
In the field
Up your game in the field, recording to high resolution ready-to-edit ProRes or
DNxHR; confidently monitor or review in Rec709 or HDR on the 7"; calibrated
1500nit 10-bit HDR screen using the suite of scopes.
In the studio
Finish the shoot and forge ahead in the editing suite - just drop your files
directly onto the timeline, use XML tagging from the field and even take a
PQ / HLG signal from your Mac or PC to use the Ninja Inferno as a HDR grading

4K60p 10-bit Pro-Res & DNxHR
Recording 4K 60p within the camera might seem enough but recording with the wrong
codec restricts flexibility in post and even risks having your footage technically
rejected. Ninja Inferno records direct from the sensor as full individual frames
just like film to 4K 60p Apple Pro-Res or Avid DNxHR with 10-bit color information
and precise yet efficient 4:2:2 color encoding.
XLR for your DSLR
Professional Audio Monitor & Recorder
Monitor and record up to 8ch of embedded HDMI 2.0 24bit digital audio. Don't be
restricted by the limited audio on most HDMI cameras, truly upgrade to
professional levels. We've added an optional 48V stereo XLR breakout cable so you
can connect and power external microphones for balanced analogue audio. Audio
control is simple with dedicated meters and menus to select channels for
recording/monitoring and adjustments for frame delay and gain.
The Ultimate Monitor. Recording for free.
10bit color, 10+ stops dynamic range, 1920 x 1200 resolution
We have created the ultimate monitor through end-to-end custom engineering of all
components. It starts with a 1920x1200 resolution LCD panel, we add 10-bit
processing in highlights and equivalent 12-bit in blacks. This is achieved
through the AtomHDR engine honed from Log algorithms of every camera maker to
give the ultimate brightness and color representation. Finally the custom
Atomos-built backlight with the highest quality precision LEDs means the 1500nits
can be utilized for High Bright Rec709 or HDR at 10+ stops.
HDR made simple, included for free
Vibrant, Natural images for maximum creativity
As a creative professional you must always be ahead of the curve - today that
means HDR at 4Kp60. Ninja Inferno delivers the simplest, most cost effective and
technically superior HDR workflow. Go HDR today by setting your camera to Log,
enabling the powerful AtomHDR engine to expose vibrant natural HDR video & then
grade and edit with confidence on any Mac or PC using the Ninja Inferno as your
portable grading monitor.
High Bright for Rec709 Outdoor shooting
1500nit bright, daylight viewable monitor
The 7" 1920 x 1200 monitor not only has the resolution and pixel density to make
every shot look amazing, the high bright 1500nit screen at almost 4 times the
brightness of conventional field monitors lets you shoot outdoors without
reflections washing out your image. This makes it a great choice for gimbals,
Steadicam and director’s monitors, delivering a crisp 4K image without the bulk
and viewing angle restrictions of a sun hood.
Trust what you see
Calibrate for accurate color, Scopes for accurate exposure and focus
All monitors drift in color over time, which is why all high end monitors have
calibration. We've partnered with calibration leader X-Rite to allow their
i1DisplayPro to calibrate the Ninja Inferno.
With peace of mind on the color front, simply tap the screen to bring up focus
peaking, 2:1/1:1 zoom, Zebra, False Color, Frame guides, SMPTE Safe Area,
Waveform, RGB parade, Vectorscope, Anamorphic desqueeze and a flexible 3D LUT
implementation to upload your own LUTs as .cube files.
Playback review with Clients & Crew
Onboard playback and play-out to larger HDR or Rec709 monitors
By combining a recorder and monitor, directors and clients can review shots away
from the camera complete with playback control, XML tagging for favorite
collation, play list generation and even play out to larger SDR or new & readily
available HDR TV's in PQ or HLG. We do all the engineering for you in AtomOS,
converting Log to PQ or HLG seamlessly completing your camera to TV pipeline.
