Master or Back-up
10-bit 4:2:2, 220Mbps, 2.5” HDD or SSD
Professional media production is all about balancing quality, cost and
time. We understand this dynamic and our aim is to redefine the digital
recording workflow to maintain the highest recording quality, minimize the
time taken to move video from camera to computer and lower the cost of
production using affordable, high capacity, high speed media.
The Ninja-2 takes any uncompressed HD or SD source and encodes it in
real-time to 10-bit, 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD at up to 220Mbps.
Both are class-leading codecs for production, broadcasting, editing
and post-production. Because we are portable, we can record from the
ultimate image source, the sensor of the camera.
The Ninja-2 always records in 10-bit, even from an 8-bit source. We add
color registries for integration into higher bit-depth graphics from CG,
animation and special effects. This avoids banding and makes editing
and grading, in fact any precision effect, more accurate.

monitoring

800x480 screen with
170° viewing and loop play
Focus Peaking, Zebra, False Color & Blue Only Exposure
The Ninja-2 replaces your current
monitor with sharper images, better
direct sunlight performance, loop
play and professional monitoring
tools such as Focus Peaking
to help you really nail that shot.
Accessories such as Loupe and
Sun visors are also available.
Combining monitoring with other
essential production and post
production tasks is just another
example of why the Ninja-2 is a
Weapon of Smart Production.

Pristine Playback & Playout

SmartLog – Just Mark & Tag
Use your Ninja-2’s 800x480 16:9 screen to navigate through and review
your footage, to mark in and out points and input XML tags. Instantly

each shot in detail, during or after the shoot – logging their suggestions
without leaving the set. Review and edit an entire day’s shoot on-set,
or while travelling, with high-quality playback and comprehensive clip
logging & navigation controls.
Just touch “Play” on the Ninja-2 touchscreen and view your full HD
recordings, with up to of 10 hours playback and editing on one battery
charge (and don’t forget our patent-pending Continuous Power for
unlimited operation in the field).

an HDMI or HD/SD-SDI signal is compatible with the Ninja-2, including

number of scenarios.

a production-quality, edit-friendly format, it bypasses the codec in the
camera and eliminates the time-consuming capture process completely.

Premiere, EDIUS, Vegas and Lightworks.

Ready to deliver

high-capacity HDD or SSD
No more expensive memory cards!
Ninja-2 frees you from the financial and
operational constraints of expensive Flash media (e.g. SxS and P2) and aggressive compression
(MPEG-2) by allowing you to use cheap, commodity storage that’s available anywhere.
Choose inexpensive 2.5” hard disk drives (spinning disks) for 90% of projects and Flashbased
SSDs for rough terrain or high security use.
HDDs are now cheaper than tapes! Store them
on a shelf or hand them to your client. Modern commodity storage is extremely reliable.
A 750GB/5400rpm drive holds up to 16 hours of high quality Apple ProRes® footage.

Everything you need

Ninja-2 works right out of the box, you can be using it within minutes!
We supply everything (except storage media) in a tough professional carry case.
