The Ultimate Directors' Monitor
Monitor up to 4 Ninja Streams at once in Multiview mode
As a standalone product the Ninja Stream dramatically simplifies professional live streaming and virtual collaboration, when 4-to-1 viewing is enabled, your Ninja Stream turns into a mobile 4 camera TV studio.
On multicamera productions, the central Ninja Stream becomes the hub for monitoring, and allows the director to simultaneously view 4 separate camera sources that each have a Ninja Stream attached. The ‘plug and play’ nature of the Ninja Stream, means that you can use mixed frame rates and resolutions on connected cameras for monitoring, as they will be automatically synced.

on set via Wi-Fi and Ethernet
The Ninja Stream facilitates on-set collaboration during a time when social distancing on-set is of paramount importance for the health and safety. The removable antennas add 5.8Ghz Wi-Fi with Dual MIMO 802.11a/c/g for local streaming in high quality and low latency. From a single Ninja Stream, users can output 10-bit 4Kp60 HDR with only one frame delay to four separate devices.
These features mean that clients, directors and crew can all be kept apart but still part of the action. Streaming to 4 devices allows Directors to use additional Ninja Streams to review shots with the on-board scopes whilst concurrently streaming to the iPhones of clients and crew, providing an extremely affordable solution for COVID-friendly monitoring on productions.
EDIT + PROXY
Simultaneous Codec Recording
Record an editing codec like Apple ProRes HQ whilst recording an H.265 or H.264 proxy version at the same time. Both the edit and proxy files will share file names and timecode to facilitate the proxy workflow in post-production.
The 10-bit H.265 file provides excellent image quality with a small file size, whereas the 8-bit H.264 file provides compatibility with legacy consumer and video equipment – yes you can monitor on your 2010 iPhone or Android device.
The excellent image quality is maintained on the disk, and small file sizes mean you can share or deliver your files immediately after a shoot in their pristine form. Uploads are fast, and viewing compatibility is high on the receiving device.
