About Us

We design and manufacture smart production tools. Smart, because we aim to make some part of your video production easier to do, or take less time to accomplish. Tools, because they should be something you can rely on to help you do your job.

We love to explore the gaps in acquisition, production and post-production to come up with new ways of doing things, new ways of connecting workflows. Like taking a video image straight from the camera sensor to a cheap, removable hard disk and encoding it to an edit-friendly format at the same time. You get a better picture and there’s no need for a capture card, saving you time and money. Or combining a converter with a test pattern generator and pulldown remover. Or our unique Continuous Power System.

We have a background designing graphics for mobile phones – the ultimate portable environment. This means we can make our tools smaller, lighter and last much, much longer in the field. We’re coders, so we’re not reliant on third-party software or off-the-shelf chipsets. This means we can continue to enhance products - and add completely new functionality - with a simple firmware update. We have developed our own graphical user interface and operating system. This means you can operate our devices literally at the touch of a button. No tedious and time- consuming menu systems.

Atomos Ninja V Enables 5.9K Apple ProRes RAW recording for Panasonic LUMIX S1H with Free Update
Added on 5/6/2020
An interview with Atomos Dan Chung about the latest firmware update to the Ninja V. Atomos and Panasonic have made the dream of ultra-high-resolution RAW video from a full-frame mirrorless camera a reality. The two companies have announced updates to the award-winning Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder and Panasonic LUMIX S1H that together record 5.9K Apple ProRes RAW files direct from the camera’s sensor. The Ninja V captures highly detailed 12-bit RAW files from the S1H over HDMI at up to 5.9K/29.97p in Full-frame, or 4K/59.94p in Super35. These unprocessed files are extremely clean, preserving the maximum dynamic range, color accuracy and every detail from the S1H. The resulting ProRes RAW files allow for greater creativity in post-production with perfect skin tones and easily matched colors, ideal for both HDR and SDR (Rec.709) workflows. More and more cinematographers are now choosing to shoot with anamorphic lenses and the Ninja V and S1H combination caters to them with the new 3.5K Super35 Anamorphic 4:3 RAW mode. An even bigger world of cinematic opportunities opens up as the Ninja V and S1H can now be used as an A-camera or smaller B-camera on an anamorphic RAW production. Each frame recorded in ProRes RAW has metadata supplied by the S1H. Apples Final Cut Pro X and other NLEs will automatically recognise ProRes RAW files as coming from the S1H and set them up for editing and display in either SDR or HDR projects automatically. Additional information will also allow other software to perform extensive parameter adjustments. Ninja V and S1H owners will gain these new RAW features free of charge. The Ninja V will be able to update by downloading and installing AtomOS 10.5 from the Atomos website. Panasonic will release a free firmware update on their LUMIX Global Customer Support website. Both updates will be available on 25 May, 2020.
