Installation Instructions:

ATOMOS recommends that your Ninja V is plugged into mains power before commencing the firmware update.

  1. Insert a compatible, formatted HDD/SSD into the Docking Station.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file and copy the ATOMNJV.FW file to the root of the HDD/SSD.
  3. Eject the HDD/SSD (according to operating system guidelines).
  4. Insert the HDD/SSD into the Ninja V.
  5. If you have an ATOMOS CONNECT accessory ensure this is connected to your device before powering on, as the module firmware will also need to be updated as part of this FW release.
  6. Power on the Ninja V and the firmware update process will begin automatically.
  7. If your Ninja V is already powered on, you will be prompted to perform the firmware update when a drive containing new firmware is inserted.
  8. Once the update is complete, your Ninja V will power itself down.
  9. Power your Ninja V back on and the device will automatically start updating the ATOMOS CONNECT accessory.
  10. To verify if the firmware update was successfully completed, navigate to the main menu and scroll to the info tab.

Note: Once firmware 10.84.00 is successfully installed on the Ninja V, the unit may reboot to update the ATOMOS CONNECT firmware. Do not interrupt the firmware installation process.

New Features:

AtomRemote App Support for ATOMOS CONNECT

Remotely operate record/playback functions and activate onscreen tools such as focus peaking, 1:1 zoom, frame guides, waveforms.

Basic Setup Instructions:

Note: Ninja V, equipped with an ATOMOS CONNECT accessory, can only be paired to a single device via Bluetooth at a time. This means that once the Ninja is connected to the AtomRemote app, it can't be paired to another device. If it's already paired to another device, the Ninja V needs to be unpaired before attempting to connect to AtomRemote.

Note: Whilst Remote mode is active, you can’t operate the Ninja V’s touchscreen.

For a detailed walkthrough of the AtomRemote app, watch the setup guide on our YouTube Channel. Whilst the video only showcases the setup with an AtomX SYNC module, the same steps also apply for ATOMOS CONNECT as well.
