AtomOS 11.03.00 Firmware Release Notes

Ninja Ultra

Installation Instructions

Atomos recommends that your Ninja Ultra 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 ATOMNJU.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 Ultra.
  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 Ultra and the firmware update process will begin automatically.
    Note: If your Ninja Ultra 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 Ultra will power itself down.
  8. Power your Ninja Ultra 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 11.03.00 is successfully installed on your Ninja Ultra, the unit may reboot to update the Atomos Connect firmware. Do not interrupt the firmware installation process.

New Features

Atomos SegmentPro

Atomos SegmentPro is another powerful new tool exclusive to our completely redesigned AtomOS 11 operating system. It allows users to segment/split long recordings into user-defined chunks, adding even more flexibility to the production workflow. The segmenting can be defined by setting a custom file size limit, or also a timer – all without dropping a frame.

Configuring SegmentPro
  1. To enable SegmentPro, scroll over to the new Segment tab in your device's main menu.
  2. In there, enable SegmentPro by tapping on the Enable/Disable radio button.
  3. Next, select the chunking method you'd like to use.
  4. Now, when you press the record button, your recordings will be automatically split into chunks, based on the parameters you've previously selected.
