Ninja V users can now record time-lapse, and with the AtomX SDI module, cross-convert between HDMI/SDI video sources with AtomOS firmware 10.61. New features in the upgraded firmware include:
Users can record a time-lapse sequence where all frames are captured into a single video file. These recordings are possible in ProRes, Dnx, and ProRes Raw over HDMI and SDI.
Improved signal locking
The introduced compatibility mode for both HDMI and SDI inputs improves signal locking from specific cameras. These cameras include Z Cam cameras and the Canon EOS – 1DX MIII on 4Kp50 and 60p video. Users will also benefit from increased stability of input and output locking for 12G SDI.
Leica SL2S L-log monitoring
The Ninja V with AtomOS 10.61 will now be capable of monitoring Leica L-log gamma in BT2020 gamut from the Leica SL2S. Updates for other models will be available in future firmware releases.
The AtomX SDI module has also been enhanced:
Cross-convert HDMI/SDI video sources
HDMI or SDI connections can now be cross-converted, DCI cropped, and down-converted from 4K to HD. These, in turn, provide a bridge between equipment such as EVFs as well as wireless TX/RX, without the need for additional convertors.
When the Ninja V and the AtomX SDI module are combined, users will be able to add an additional activation key to unlock RAW functionality for the SDI module. This requires the purchase of an additional activation via the Atomos website.
Apple ProRes RAW recording over SDI
The Ninja V must be used together with the AtomX SDI module to fully enable ProRes RAW over SDI recording. RAW over SDI activation is now available from the Atomos website for US$99. Selected SDI cameras from Panasonic, Canon and Sony are supported.
