Melbourne, Australia – 3rd June, 2013: Atomos, the creator of the award-winning camera mounted recorders Ninja-2 and Samurai, and the pocket-sized Connect converters, will be at InfoComm13, 12th–14th June, Orange County Convention Centre, Orlando, Florida (Booth number 2552).
“InfoComm13 gives us a great platform to explore new opportunities in the Professional AV market”, said Matt Ivey, Atomos President for the Americas. “We are also pleased to be supporting our distribution partner in North America, TecNec”.
Visitors to InfoComm13 will have a chance to see the brand new Samurai Blade HD-SDI recorder with its stunning 1280 x 720 IPS ‘SuperAtom’ touchscreen. It is the first truly professional monitor that records, offering full waveform functionality, including vectorscope and RGB/luma parade displays. “This new screen is truly spectacular,” added Ivey, “and it enables us to offer a comprehensive toolset that any systems integrator or test engineer would be proud of.”
Atomos has now shipped a staggering 10,000 field recorders worldwide and the Ninja-2 and Samurai recorders have broken new ground in production by combining recording, monitoring and playback all in one easy to operate, portable device. Both record pristine, uncompressed images straight from the sensor of DSLRs or video cameras, or even switcher or ISO feeds from live events, directly to inexpensive, removable 2.5″ HDDs or SSDs, in a ready-to-edit format: Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD. Atomos recorders speed up any production workflow, improve recorded image quality and replace multiple devices for a fraction of their combined cost.
Another new addition to the Atomos recorder range, directly targeted at Broadcast and ProAV markets, is the Ronin portable recorder, monitor and deck. Ronin is a rack-mountable solution for both fixed-facility and on-location production, based on the Samurai design. Like the Samurai, it can operate on location with battery or DC power, but it has AC power built-in, standard HD/SD-SDI BNC connectors and balanced XLR inputs and outputs.
No engineer’s tool box would be complete without an Atomos Connect, and this portable and versatile battery-powered HDMI/HD-SDI converter, with built-in test pattern generator and audio tone, will be joined by its fixed-facility counterpart, Connect-AC. Launched at NAB and shipping at InfoComm13, stand-alone or rack-mountable Connect-AC converters are powered by a standard figure-of-8 IEC cable, and offer all the great functionality of Connect while rendering ‘wall-warts’ a thing of the past.
