For media professionals looking to exploit the full HDMI capabilities. The Samurai Blade is a handy, super mobile, touchscreen-based HD-SDI recorder, monitor and post production gadget for video professionals. It captures immaculate 10-bit 4:2:2 video resolution. It can incorporate audio directly from any camera with HD/SD-SDI output. The Samurai is an energy saver, using very little of your precious battery life, ensures longer durations of recording (up to 16.5 hours on a 750GB Storage unit).
Professional media production is all about balancing quality, cost and time. Atomos' aim is to redefine the digital recording workflow to maintain the highest recording quality, minimise the time taken to move video from the camera to computer and lower the cost of production using affordable, high capacity, high-speed media.The Samurai Blade 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 Samurai Blade always records in 10-bit, even from an 8-bit source. We add colour registries for incorporating 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.
At 325 dpi and 1 million pixels (1280x720) the Samurai Blade's 5" SuperAtom IPS Panel delivers amazing resolution, super accurate colours and super deep blacks.The Samurai Blade is the first truly professional monitor that records, offering full waveform functionality, including vectorscope, in addition to focus peaking, zebra, false colour and blue-only monitoring tools.
The Atomos Samurai blade allows you to get focus peaking with multiple levels, false colour in two modes, zebra 0-100% fully adjustable and blue-only for that quick exposure check!
