Las Vegas, Nevada, April 15, 2011
The British Columbia Professional Videographers Association is proud to present Atomos with the 2011 BCPVA Video Innovation Award for the Atomos Ninja.
The 2011 BCPVA VIA was presented to Atomos founders, Jeromy Young and Ian Overliese, by BCPVA delegate Shawn Lam, at NAB 2011.
“2011 will be remembered as the year of the external high definition recorder at NAB 2011 Atomos had the most attractive offerings with their HDMI Ninja and HD-SDI Samurai models. The concept of recording to a higher quality codec, before the video camera compresses it with their lossy codecs, is nothing new, but bringing that technology to a portable camera mountable device makes the concept practical. It is rare to see a piece of technology that so dramatically improves on existing video camera recording quality and Atomos does it with a feature set and attractive price point that makes the Ninja and Samurai must-haves.”
The Atomos Ninja is a portable touchscreen Professional 10bit HD Recorder, Monitor, & Playback device that captures video and audio direct from any camera with a clean HDMI output. It encodes in real-time to the Apple ProRes format, onto removable laptop or solid state 2½ inch hard drives. The Ninja has dual hot-swappable battery slots, allowing for continuous power, and includes a Firewire800 and USB2.0/3.0 dock for fast transfer speeds. The Atomos Ninja is $995 USD and is aready shipping.
The British Columbia Videographers Association is Canada’s largest non-profit professional video association and its members specialize in event, corporate, and wedding videography.
