AtomOS 11.01.00 Firmware Release Notes


AtomOS 11 is the first major redesign of our bespoke operating system since 2018, and it's tailor-made for your brand new Ninja. Please prepare to install firmware version 11.01.00 as soon as you unbox your new Atomos device.

Installation Instructions

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

  1. Insert a compatible, formatted SSD into the Docking Station.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file and copy the ATOMNJA.FW file to the root directory of the SSD.
  3. Eject the SSD according to operating system guidelines.
  4. Insert the SSD into the Ninja.
  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 and the firmware update process will begin automatically.
    Note: If your Ninja is already powered on, you will be prompted to perform the firmware update when a drive containing new firmware is inserted.
  7. Once the update is complete, your Ninja will power itself down.
  8. Power your Ninja back on and the device will automatically start updating the Atomos Connect accessory.
  9. To verify if the firmware update was successfully completed, navigate to the main menu and scroll to the info tab.

Note: Once firmware 11.01.00 is successfully installed on your Ninja, the unit may reboot to update the Atomos Connect firmware. Do not interrupt the firmware installation process.

New Features of AtomOS 11

Completely overhauled user interface

The visually stunning AtomOS 11 operating system offers a fresh new look with countless optimizations to increase performance, usability, and some impressive new features. We can't wait for you to explore it.


Using the new PlaybackAssist feature, users can create custom ordered playlists, making the review of dailies, or even play out to digital signage or large format displays a breeze.

Scheduled Play is also part of the PlaybackAssist feature set, allowing users to choose the time when the device should start playing back specific files. This could be after a user-defined timer has elapsed, or at a specific time of day.

Similarly to PlaybackAssist, the brand new RecordAssist feature allows you to schedule when you want your device to start recording. The recording can start at a specific time, or when your previously configured timer has elapsed. This also applies to the Timelapse function, making RecordAssist a perfect fit for situations where you have to configure your device before an event, or for the early morning hours when capturing a sunrise.

New Colorized Exposure modes

Introduction of two new alternatives to our traditional False Color implementation on Atomos devices: Arri False Color and the EL Zone System invented by Hollywood DP Ed Lachman, ASC.

Note: The EL Zone System exposure tool can only be activated when our device detects either a Log or RAW Input. It's not selectable on the Ninja when cameras are outputting video with Rec.709 or generic non-LOG picture profiles to it.

Record and upload 4Kp60 clips in C2C Workflows

By selecting the new "Single Recording" Camera to Cloud mode in Atomos Cloud Studio, Ninja users can now upload high quality 4K clips at up to 60fps to either or the Sony Ci Media cloud.

These clips are significantly higher quality than our 1080p and 720p proxies, and they're perfect for quick-turnaround jobs and every scenario where high quality C2C clips will end up in the final edit.

Note: Using this feature requires an active subscription to either the CLASSIC or PREMIUM tier in Atomos Cloud Studio.

Revised NDI menu

In Atomos 11 we completely redesigned our NDI menu, making it easier to configure your Ninja as an NDI TX device.

Transmit and Receive wirelessly with RemoteView

By pairing two Ninja Ultra or Ninja units to Atomos Cloud Studio, you can configure either of them as a wireless transmitter (TX) or receiver (RX). As long as you're connected to the Atomos Cloud via the internet via an Atomos Connect and if your Cloud subscription allows it, you can send a live video feed from one Ninja to the other. No additional wireless equipment required.

Note: Any AtomOS 10 & OS 11 device, or iPhone running the Atomos Pro Camera app can transmit (TX) to a RemoteView session. However, only AtomOS 11 devices, the Atomos – Surface app for macOS and iPadOS, and the Atomos – Monitor Apple tvOS app can be configured to be receiving (RX) devices.

Note: AtomOS10 TX devices can only support 25/50/29.97/59.94 FPS sessions, whereas OS11 TX devices can also support 23.98 and 24 FPS sessions.

True 24p recording from Sony FX3 and FX30

While the output spec was previously limited to 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p and 59.94p, we now support true 24.00p recording from the Sony FX3 and FX30 cameras too.

Known Limitations to be resolved in future releases
