Atomos Samurai Blade PDF Print E-mail

INTRODUCING THE SAMURAI BLADE SUPERATOM IPS PANEL

Super sharp, super bright, super blacks.. down to the last atom!

At 325 dpi and 1 million pixels (1280x720) this 5" SuperAtom IPS Panel delivers amazing resolution, super accurate colours and super deep blacks, with an image representation that oozes atmosphere. When you see this screen you will not believe your eyes. OLED seems lifeless and dull by comparison at normal brightness levels - In-Plane Switching technology really brings your images to life!

The capacitive touch panel gives lightning-quick response times and gesture capability. Controlling AtomOS 5.0 on Samurai Blade is silky smooth.

Built in waveform monitor and vectorscope make this the must-have video tool for professionals.

The Samurai Blade is the world’s most advanced smart production recorder, monitor and playback deck. Every part of its physical and operational design has been carefully crafted to deliver the ultimate in simple operation and mission critical reliability. The Blade combines multiple devices – external monitor, capture card, playback deck and cut edit suite – into a single affordable tool.

It’s lightweight, tough and robust for operation in the field.

We record direct to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD editing codecs onto commodity 2.5” hard discs at the camera, saving you media cost, time for capturing and of course giving higher quality from any MPEG-based camera.

Your Cameras best Friend

Today’s camera sensors and lenses are quite spectacular, and we harness even large 5K+ sensors on professional video cameras to ensure you get the best from your camera - YES we support your make and model of Canon, Sony, Nikon, Panasonic, JVC, RED & ARRI.

All this crammed into a tiny fully customized OS, at just $1295 we give you all you need to produce – AC power, battery and charger, 2.5” HDD/SSD computer docking station - you will not believe what’s on offer!

Construction

Designed using aircraft grade aluminium, the Samurai Blade delivers durability and portability. Locking mechanisms for each removable part means sturdy reliable operation. Weighing a mere 380 grams this pocket rocket will never weigh you down and is completely at home on top of any camera, whether in the studio or up a mountain.


Completely Custom

We don’t believe in jigsaw-puzzling a best of breed product, we have designed every circuit, coded every function and invested thousands of hours in testing, quality control, design and manufacturing. We do not buy standard IP cores like codecs, we do not lease HDMI/SDI interfaces – we write everything from scratch to deliver you a finely tuned thoroughbred video machine!


Unbelievably low power consumption

Consuming just 6 watts of power – that’s nearly five times less than the nearest competitor - the Samurai Blade is perfect for battery-powered, in-the-field operation. Boasting no less than 4 power options, including the supplied NP series battery, DC power adapter for larger batteries, AC mains power and our patented Continuous Power dual battery system. You’ll never be without power when you need it most.

Affordable 2.5” HDD or SSD

2.5” hard disks are the most affordable digital storage on the planet. They outperform SSDs, SD card, SxS and P2 cards in terms of cost and reliability for video use. In normal video shooting environments the 2.5” HDD is your new tape. Extremely low running costs, long record times (up to 30 hours) and limitless supply. For those vibration sensitive shoots, around the racetrack or in the helicopter, we of course support modern SSDs.

 

Like our hardware, the OS used on Atomos products is smart. It’s lightning-fast, simple to operate and robust. It encompasses all aspects of video production, from recording, to playback and review, monitoring assist and even simple cut and tag editing. AtomOS gives us the flexibility to deliver regular functionality improvements and operational enhancements to our existing users. For example, new to AtomOS 5 is alpha channel and transparency support, full waveform monitor RGB parade and Luma overlay display, and vectorscope with zoom (AtomOS 5 only available for the Samurai Blade).


Record Direct from the Sensor

Direct from the sensor – the best quality from your great lens and sensor, no matter when it was made. Old and new cameras alike can get the benefit of higher quality recording, enhancing new cameras and breathing new life into older ones.

 

Synced Rec Trigger and Timecode

Triggering record and capturing timecode in sync with your camera is essential to smooth production with external devices. We have teamed up with all the leading camera manufacturers, including Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, JVC, RED and Arri to give you frame accurate timecode and start/stop triggers over both SDI and HDMI from almost all cameras. We also added a tally light so everyone knows when it’s show time.

We include LANC and rolling timecode trigger for those older cameras that don’t have start/stop flag protocols on board – we monitor the timecode and trigger record when the camera starts rolling!

10-bit 4:2:2 Quality

So why record 10-bit from the sensor of a camera, if it's 8-bit? Well, if you want to edit, use CG or 3D effects, green screen or add titles and transitions, these will all be 12-bit or more. If you record 8-bit like most cameras, when the 12-bit or higher graphic is inserted into the timeline, the colours are 'crushed' down to 8-bit, making the result extremely poor quality. We bypass the 8-bit and record 10-bit colour registries to ensure your video plays nicely with all computer effects.

Easy to encode for CPU - Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD!

Editing codecs are made for editing video, not delivering video. MPEG is great for finishing and delivery – but not for post-production. We give you post-production quality recording on set.

The codec choice we offer – Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD – gives you universal non-linear editing support. Both are routinely used for film and TV production, as well as ProAV, event and independent film making. We have you covered, on Mac and PC.


The Longest Recording Time Around

Using HDD up to 1TB means we can record high quality footage, free you from the hassle of changing memory cards and increase the quality of your footage at the same time. A 500GB drive costs $50 and records 5hrs of the highest bit-rate Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD formats. Using Avid 36 you can record up to 60 hrs on a 1TB drive! Flexible and affordable long and short recording, the adaptability you need in the field, on the road and in the studio.

Hot Swap Drives

The way the OS is designed is very intuitive, you can hot-swap drives at any time without having to play games with the OS. Eject and change drives or even take a drive from an edit suite or recorder (even non Atomos ones) and you can play out to any monitor or on screen for review - a true digital deck.

Safety First! AtomOS File Recovery on the fly!

When recording the last thing you want is to lose the file you have been recording for the past hour, however if you pull the power or remove the disc, even though we have safety latches.. what happens? Well AtomOS is smart. It will detect the broken file from power outage or removal of disc mid record and reconstruct the frames and file to enable you to recover to within 2 frames of the catastrophic event.

This is the peace of mind professionals need.



Audio Monitoring

All audio, even analog audio, is locked frame accurately to every video frame, never drifting or losing sync. If the digital audio is out of sync from the camera you can even adjust this on the fly by advancing or delaying the audio coming in – very smart!

With up to 12 channels of digital and 2 of analog audio always available to view and monitor on headphone jacks or line out, audio is taken care of. From mixing desks and line out to XLR adaptor boxes like Beachtek and juicedLink, AtomOS covers all your audio needs.

The Monitor that thinks it’s a recorder & deck!

Professional monitoring & signal testing – recording included for free!

Probably the most surprising thing about AtomOS is that we can add functions traditionally performed by dedicated devices. Monitoring and signal testing is one such function. Essential for creative setup and capturing the perfect shot – monitoring tools define how well you perform on the day. This means monitor assist functions to check exposure and focus are a must.


Shot Setup and Signal Test Tools!

We offer a comprehensive tool set that any test engineer would be proud of – a full waveform monitor, RGB parade display, luma overlay, vectorscope with zoom and test pattern generator for signal calibration. You get focus peaking with multiple levels and colors for ease of use, false color in two modes, zebra 0-100% fully adjustable and blue-only for that quick exposure check!

Play - Director's Cut the Smart Way




Instant Shot Review Anytime anywhere.

Play back your shots and takes on the fly - on set, in the field in a restaurant or on the plane after the production. Check framing, focus and exposure in any part of the footage with the same powerful tools offered by AtomOS monitor tools. Review each and every shot and take using the SuperAtom screen, or to a large monitor for crew and clients to make sure you get what you need.

Directors Cut and Tag

AtomOS gives you speedy navigation, cutting and tagging on short and long clips with transport controls and finite frame-by-frame accurate stepping. Cut editing is time consuming and usually done in a studio by the people who weren’t at the shoot. AtomOS lets you rough cut your footage, tag it as Favorite or Reject, then save as a project, ready to finish and polish in the studio. This is a powerful time and money saver and helps collaboration on set.




Play Any Apple ProRes or DNxHD File from anywhere

We call it 3rd-party playback support, what it means for you is any Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD file from any system, recorder or edit suite can be played back using AtomOS – take rushes from the edit suite on the road in a convenient super high quality deck that fits in your hand.

Mac & PC Review

The files can be reviewed by any PC or Mac with QuickTime or the system codec installed. Laptop review is simple even without an editing package installed.

EDIT - Dock and Produce!

The coolest part of the process is the instant editing and post production of such large files in one easy step. Simply dock, open your cut footage or any take and you are editing in 10-bit 4:2:2 quality instantly. This really is a pipeline to your timeline. No transcoding, no capturing and no MPEG degradation or 4:2:0 issues.

Choose your NLE Flavour!

From the original FCP to the current FCPX, Premiere Pro to Sony Vegas, Media Composer to Lightworks, our files are compatible with all major NLEs and we work closely with them to bring more functionality all the time..

Telestream NASCAR Project Wins IBC2012 Innovation Awards

Nevada City and San Jose, California, September 10, 2012 - Telestream®, a leading provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, and Quantum, a global expert in data protection and big data management, today announced that the NASCAR video capture and replay project incorporating technology from both companies won the prestigious IBC2012 Innovation Award in the Content Management category. Telestream developed the video capture and replay system for NASCAR’s high-speed sports officiating. The award recognized NASCAR and its project partners, including Quantum for its StorNext data management software and CineSys for its disk storage.


“It is an honor for the NASCAR project to be recognized by the IBC,” said Barbara DeHart, vice president of marketing at Telestream. “The new race control system would not have been possible without the collective efforts of NASCARProductions, along with the Telestream, Quantum and CineSys teams. Together, we were able to bring high-quality capture and replay into the race-day operations of one of the most exciting sports around.”

In the fast-paced world of NASCAR racing, where broadcasts reach more than 150 countries, video also plays a key role in controlling NASCAR races. The new race control system is based on Telestream’s Pipeline HD hardware encoder and a new, high-performance, multi-clip Pipeline Replay application.  The scalable, file-based system provides instant capture and synchronous display of 18 high definition (HD) camera feeds, enabling instant access, search, and analysis of an entire race event.

“The instant replay system that Telestream has provided NASCAR this season has enabled our officials to perform their jobs in an even more efficient and time-sensitive manner,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Vice President of Competition. “Having instant access to that many camera angles featuring such high-quality video has been a terrific addition to our race weekends.”

The race control system utilizes high-speed StorNext File System software from Quantum to provide simultaneous access of video content, including the ability to rewind and read while continuing to write from 18 HD cameras. CineSys provided on-site infrastructure, architecture, installation, and technical assistance.

”We are pleased to have been selected by Telestream to participate in this important project, and it is especially gratifying to be recognized in this prestigious award. StorNext’s robust file sharing software is fine-tuned to address the high-performance streaming needs that accompany higher resolution video. Because of our collaboration, these combined technologies are greatly improving the accuracy of race monitoring and enhancing the experience for millions of NASCAR fans,” said Janae Stow Lee, senior vice president, File System and Archive Product Group at Quantum.

The award was presented at the IBC2012 Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening, September 9 at the RAI in Amsterdam. IBC is the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide. The Innovation Awards recognize collaboration and those who push the boundaries. Telestream is exhibiting at IBC in stand 7.D16, and Quantum is exhibiting in stand 7.G30.
