Atomos Samurai HD-SDI Hard Disk Recorder captures 10-bit HD
resolution video directly from you HD camera and stores it to an
internal 2.5" laptop drive. Images are captured using Apple's lossless
ProRes codec and are ready to edit on Final Cut Pro or on a Windows
machine equipped with the ProRes codec and a supporting NLE editor.
Along with capturing video, the Samurai supports 12 channels of embedded
SDI audio and also has 2 channel line in inputs as well as a single
A high resolution 5" on-board monitor provides
you with an accurate representation of what the camera is seeing,
eliminating the need to mount an extra monitor. Touch screen controls -
presented with large icons on an uncluttered interface - give you easy
access to record and playback functionality as well as to the system's
menu. Some of the advantages the Samurai has over the Ninja unit are
timecode, genlock, and the ability to synchronize multiple units.Samurai
makes it easy to go from the capturing to the editing process. Once
capturing is complete, simply remove the 2.5" SSD or HDD with its caddy
from the recorder and place it in the included docking station which
interfaces to the host PC via FireWire 800 or USB 3.0. A LANC connector
lets you integrate the Samurai with cameras and devices that utilize the
LANC communication protocol.Samurai comes with 2 batteries that
securely attach to the unit, but uses only one at a time. This way if
one battery runs out, Samurai continues to operate on the other battery.
Post Production Quality, 10-Bit Recording
Samurai takes the uncompressed video output from your camera
and, in hardware, encodes it in real-time to visually-lossless Apple
ProRes, recognized across the industry as a class-leading codec for
editing and post-production. Record direct from your camera's sensor
electronics direct into super high quality Apple ProRes for the most
streamlined, affordable Final Cut Pro workflow available today.
A Pipeline to Your Timeline
File-based production is all about efficient workflow, and
Samurai takes the workflow to the camera - not the other way round. The
Samurai's tight Apple ProRes integration means recorded
footage is instantly and natively editable in Final Cut Pro. No need to
waste time transcoding or converting from other camera formats. And
remember - Apple ProRes is a better editing codec than long-GOP delivery
or camera codecs like AVCHD or similar MPEG flavors. Samurai uses
standard computer connections - FireWire 800 and USB 2 and 3 to give you
flexibility when connecting to your Mac or PC. Simply insert your Master
Caddy into the Master Caddy Dock provided and you are editing
instantly. You can also, of course, transfer the footage to your central
SAN or LAN.
Incredibly Low-Cost High-Capacity Storage
Flash memory is fine for stills photography, but with
High-Definition video, quality is compromised by the extreme compression
needed to fit huge quantities of data onto tiny in-camera storage
media. Professional storage media like SxS and P2 are simply too
expensive to "use and forget", which means that you're never free to
just work as you want to. Samurai liberates you from the financial and
operational constraints of expensive Flash media by allowing you to use
cheap, commodity storage available in any computer store: massive yet
inexpensive traditional 2.5" Hard Disk Drives (Spinning Disks) for most
projects and Flash- based SSDs for rough-and-tumble use. (Buying Flash
memory in the form of SSDs is much cheaper than the equivalent memory
size on in-camera flash memory cards). Using tried and tested storage
guarantees performance and reliability. A 750GB/5400rpm drive holds up
to 16 hours of high quality Apple ProRes footage and costs under $100.
Recycle Older Cameras
Samurai records direct from the HD-SDI output from your camera,
so it doesn't care what format your camera is: whatever it receives
through the HD-SDI connection it will record (with certain exceptions
detailed on Atomos's web site). So if you've got an older camera with
HD-SDI - just plug in a Samurai and bring it into the world of
file-based production. You'll get better quality from your old camera
than when it was new!
Simple-to-use 5.0" Touchscreen
Access all of the Samurai's operations via the fast, responsive
touch interface. New features are easy to add with software upgrades.
All the main functions are accessed through
big, colorful icons. It's so simple, there's no need for complicated
Continuous Power from Hot-Swappable Batteries
Powering video devices on location is no longer a worry because
the Samurai comes with 2 batteries, each capable of a minimum of 2.5
hours, and a combined maximum of up to 9 hours continuous operation when
fully charged, depending on codec and screen use. Samurai has two
battery compartments but only uses one at a time and switches to the
second battery when the first is depleted. Simply swap batteries on the
fly without stopping the production!
Latching Batteries Safe and Secure
Batteries are held in place on the outside of the Samurai. To
ensure that they never come lose, Atomos has designed an ingenious
latching system that holds batteries in place securely, but releases
them instantly if you release the catch.
Everything You Need
Samurai works right out of the box - you can be using it within
minutes! Samurai is supplied with everything (except storage media which
is cheaper to source locally) in a tough professional carry-case. The
Samurai, two Master Caddies ready to receive your storage media, a USB 2
+ 3 + FireWire 800 docking station, two 2600mAH batteries and a smart
battery charger, together with cables for connecting all of this
