The AtomX Cast from Atomos is now available. A modular companion for the Atomos Ninja V monitor-recorder, the AtomX Cast uses the AtomX expansion port on the Ninja V to transform it into an advanced multi-input switcher. Small enough to hold in the palm of your hand, AtomX Cast is designed to meet the needs of a small crew or one-man multi-camera productions.
With this announcement, users can now also benefit from the Ninja Cast bundle, a combination of the Ninja V and AtomX Cast, an all-in-one live switching and streaming solution that combines the Ninja V’s 5in touchscreen monitor with four HDMI inputs and physical buttons.

This allows users to connect cameras, computers, consoles, pre-recorded content sources or any valid video source with a resolution of 1920x1080 and use the touchscreen or the buttons to ‘switch’ between sources and select which source should be on screen at any one time for broadcast.
Ninja Cast offers a fully functional stand-alone switcher, multi-view monitor and broadcast-quality recorder that does not require a computer to function. Having an integrated monitor allows users to see the incoming signals as well as indicators for program and preview out, without having to connect an additional monitor.
Solo operators can use the Ninja Cast easily and discretely with compact mirrorless cameras for productions of any size. Production crews can expand the system with larger multiview displays or preview outputs for talent.
The AtomX Cast is available as a separate module for existing Ninja V users. The Ninja Cast bundle will be available as an off-the-shelf solution for users without a Ninja V. Existing Cast V users can now download AtomOS 10.7.1 to enable support for the AtomX Cast.
AtomX Cast functionality for the Ninja V+ will be available at a later date.
