Atomos Announces Samurai Blade

News Image
Atomos, creator of the Ninja-2 and Samurai field recorders, along with the Connect converters, announced the Samurai Blade at NAB 2013 last week.
"Atomos has now shipped a staggering 10,000 field recorders worldwide, and the Samurai has been a great success. For most professional environments it continues to be the go-to recorder or deck for many of our customers," said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos.
"We are now excited to present the next generation of Samurai – the Samurai Blade.
"Blade introduces the SuperAtom IPS screen – super sharp, super bright, super blacks – right down to the last atom. At 325 dpi and a million pixels, this screen is spectacular. With full waveform functionality, the Blade is a monitor that records and a recorder that truly monitors.
"It’s the perfect partner for the new wave of cinematic cameras." added Young.
Powered by AtomOS 5* (only available for Samurai Blade), the 1280 x 720 5” touchscreen gives the Blade gamma, brightness and contrast control, as well as vectorscope and RGB/luma parade features.
Like its Ninja-2 and Samurai predecessors, Samurai Blade allows the recording of 10-bit 4:2:2 images straight from the camera sensor directly to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD editing codecs.
The Samurai Blade includes tri-level focus peaking, zebra, false colour and blue-only monitoring in addition to waveform, and has standard BNC connectors.
