The Ninja Assassin is the perfect tool to fast track experienced photographers into the world of video. A single HDMI cable connection to your DSLR or mirrorless camera is all it takes to deliver high quality visually lossless video, longer record times well in excess of the traditional DSLR 30min barrier & precision shot setup with easy to use scopes & a simple one touch user interface on the 7" color calibrated monitor.

Professional videographers will benefit from the increased 10-bit color resolution, 4:2:2 color accuracy and direct from sensor recording to edit friendly Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR. The lightweight body in tandem with smaller rigs is perfect for dynamic, high action scenarios while the 7" monitor with peaking and 1:1/2:1 zoom has the size, resolution and scopes needed in critical focus scenarios. Premium recording features like time lapse & pre-roll along with premium monitoring functions like 3D LUTs and anamorphic desqueeze expand creativity opportunities for filmmakers whilst the affordable non-proprietary media ensures higher profitability on set.

Corporate video teams need to more with less. The Ninja Assassin replaces the need for a separate external recorder, video monitor, audio recorder and playback deck by combining them all in one device. Apart from the obvious cost savings, having less equipment on the rig makes interviews less imposing and more natural and setup time significantly less. Having the 7" screen makes shot setup easy but additionally makes reviewing with in house stakeholders easy as well. With the shoot complete, dock and drop the media into either your Mac or PC and start editing in Apple, Adobe, Avid or your choice of NLE software.

As a 4K-UHD and HD playback deck, the Ninja Assassin is one of the most flexible and affordable solutions for live events, trade shows and concerts. Feed projectors & signage systems 4K-UHD or HD files directly using the HDMI output, downscale 4K files to HD panels on the fly and using the playlist feature schedule entire clips or favorite sections or a combination of both.

Gameplay capture is one of the most watched online video categories, but is currently limited to h.264 recording. The Ninja Assassin allows for recording of high frame rate HD up to 120p or 4K-UHD up to 30p in improved 4:2:2 10-bit quality from graphic cards and game consoles. A separate input for audio recording allows for live commentary to be mixed with the video, tagging on the fly ensure the highlights can be easily picked up during editing and long record time lets the action continue without missing anything in the recording.
