Professional media production is all about balancing quality, cost and time. We understand this dynamic and our aim is to redefine the digital recording workflow to maintain the highest recording quality, minimize the time taken to move video from camera to computer and lower the cost of production using affordable, high capacity, high speed media.
The Ninja Blade takes any uncompressed HD or SD source and encodes it in real-time to 10-bit, 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD at up to 220Mbps. Both are class-leading codecs for production, broadcasting, editing and post-production. Because we are portable, we can record from the ultimate image source, the sensor of the camera.
The Ninja Blade always records in 10-bit, even from an 8-bit source. We add color registries for incorporating higher bit-depth graphics from CG, animation and special effects. This avoids banding and makes editing and grading, in fact any precision effect, more accurate.

Waveform Monitor, Focus Peaking, Zebra and more…
At 325 dpi and 1 million pixels (1280x720) the Ninja Blade’s 5” SuperAtom IPS Panel delivers amazing resolution, super accurate colours and super deep blacks.
The Ninja Blade is the first truly professional monitor that records, offering full waveform functionality, including vectorscope, in addition to focus peaking, zebra, false colour and blue-only monitoring tools.
