Atomos Samurai Ships

27 October, 2011 by IF

Samurai builds on all the strengths of Atomos' groundbreaking HDMI Ninja. Samurai packs masses of power into a rugged, portable HD-SDI device that records, monitors, and plays back the visually lossless recordings all for only $1,595.

Samurai builds on all the strengths of Atomos’ groundbreaking HDMI Ninja, namely:

  • Records, monitors and has instant on-board playback of ready-to-edit, visually-lossless Apple ProRes files – all in one portable, self-contained unit
  • Bypasses the image-degrading compression needed to squeeze HD onto in-camera flash storage
  • Eliminates capture cards and the time-wasting capture process by recording to a highquality editing codec direct from the camera
  • Uses limitless and cheap removable 2 ½ inch hard disks for the lowest cost storage in an external recorder
  • Records to SSDs (Solid State Drives)
  • Very low power consumption
  • Banishes worries about battery life with “Dual Looping”, hot-swappable battery operation
  • Recycles older cameras with obsolete tape and compression technology, and updates them with a modern, high-quality file-based workflow
