Atomos Brings Samurai Blade Under $1,000

News Image
Atomos has announced a new price for the Samurai Blade of US$995. Launched at NAB 2013, the Samurai Blade was the first Atomos monitor to include the SuperAtom IPS screen.

It has become a popular option for thousands of cameramen and DOPs since its release at the Las Vegas show.
"This new price reflects the Atomos way – the savings we get from producing in higher volumes is passed on directly to our users." said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos. "With both our HDMI and SDI monitor/recorders under $1,000, the days are numbered for monitors that don't record or playback."
Samurai Blade adds set up tools with full waveform monitor functions, including vectorscope, RGB and LUMA parades with transparent overlay and bottom right, lower 3rd or full screen positioning.
NY Film Producer Chuck Fishbein at Crazy Duck Productions said: "When I am filming Manhattan in 4K, I use the Blade to simultaneously create HD ProRes HQ files, which saves room on the camera's SXS cards, while delivering a file ready for editing. 4K is coming, but not everyone wants it right now, so, being able to deliver footage in the ProRes HQ format, while archiving the 4K makes my workload a bit less, while still setting us up for the future."
You can see the Samurai Blade and full range of Atomos products at IBC 2014 Hall 9 D.25 in Amsterdam 12-16 September.
