The warriors at Atomos continue to generate more strong additions to the production arsenal. One new recruit is the Ronin, a rack mounting monitor, recorder and deck for studio and live video production. The Ronin is comfortable in controlled environments and one the road, collecting audio through its stereo XLR inputs and outputs. Then get introduced to the Samurai Blade, a versatile tool that can record your video and double as a monitor. Of course, any Ninja or Samurai can do these, where the Samurai Blade provides separation is with 1280x720 resolution and a size that is suitable for on-camera mounting. The full set of features for the Samurai Blade include BNC connectors, a 5-inch SuperAtom IPS touch screen, and recording directly from the sensor at 10-bit, 4:2:2 DNxHD or ProRes.
