About Ninja and Samurai

Ninja is a portable touchscreen HD recorder, monitor and playback device that captures video direct to Apple ProRes from any camera with an HDMI output onto low-cost, removable 2 ½ inch hard disks. It eliminates the need for capture cards and wasted time logging and capturing by avoiding the lossy, time consuming capture to edit process.

Samurai is the second of Atomos’s industry-transforming external Apple ProRes video recorders, working with any camera with an HD-SDI output. Samurai packs masses of power into a rugged, portable device that records, monitors, and instantly plays back ready-to-edit, visually-lossless Apple Pro Res files and has a bigger touchscreen and multi-camera support.
