Atomos announced the AtomX CAST is now available. The AtomX CAST is a modular companion for the Atomos Ninja V monitor-recorder that uses the AtomX expansion port on the Ninja V to transform it into an advanced multi-input switcher. AtomX CAST is small and fits the needs of a small crew or one-man multicamera production company.
Users can now also benefit from the Ninja CAST bundle, a combination of the Ninja V and AtomX CAST, an all-in-one live switching and streaming solution. The bundle combines the Ninja V’s high-quality 5-inch touch screen monitor with four HDMI inputs and physical buttons. This allows users to connect cameras, computers, consoles, prerecorded content sources or any valid video source with a resolution of 1920×1080 and use the touch screen or the buttons to “switch” between sources and select which source should be on screen at any one time for broadcast.
Here’s a video explaining it:
The AtomX CAST is available as a separate module for existing Ninja V users, priced at $399 USD. The Ninja CAST bundle, a combination of the Ninja V and AtomX CAST, will be available as an off-the-shelf solution for users without a Ninja V, priced at $949 USD. Existing Ninja V users can now download AtomOS 10.7.1 to enable support for the AtomX CAST. AtomX CAST functionality for the Ninja V+ will be available at a later date.
