ATOMOS introduced a feature to expand recording options for Sony’s FX6 full-frame Cinema Line camera. With Sony’s latest firmware release (V.2.00) for the FX6, it’s possible to record Apple ProRes RAW over HDMI to the NINJA V and NINJA V+.
The convention has been for compact cameras to output RAW via SDI only. ATOMOS has developed the ability to record ProRes RAW via HDMI. The NINJA V and NINJA V+ provide the entry point for Sony’s FX3 and FX6 to use HDMI with resolutions up to 4.2K and up to 60fps. The NINJA V+ Pro Kit/ NINJA V+ and SDI module with SDI RAW Activation further extends support for 4K up to 120fps. Customers who would like the choice of SDI connectivity need to add the SDI module to the NINJA V/V+. For RAW support, including HDMI cross conversion, activation of the supplemental RAW license can be completed online using the ATOMOS portal.
The Apple ProRes RAW format gives filmmakers the ability to adjust the look of their images and extend brightness and shadow detail during post. This flexibility makes it ideally suited for HDR workflows. Manageable file sizes speed up and simplify file transfer, editing, media management and archiving. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer, along with other applications, including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight and Grass Valley Edius.
