Atomos Ronin Portable Recorder/Player/Monitor with Touchscreen
The Ronin portable Recorder/Player/Monitor is a smart solution for both fixed-facility and on-location video production. Based on the award-winning Samurai field recorder, the Ronin features touchscreen ease of use, capture to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD, professional monitoring and edit review. Key features of the Ronin's AtomOS operating system include record triggering via a start/stop flag or timecode, SmartMonitor focus/exposure monitoring assist (including focus peaking and false color) and SmartLog for pre-editing (reviewing, marking and tagging) footage in real-time. Like the Samurai, it can operate on location with battery or DC power, but it can be used in a fixed facility, rack-mounted environment using AC power.
In addition, the Ronin has balanced XLR inputs and outputs, along with a front panel headphone jack with channel monitoring selections. It also has an internal battery charging system for attached Atomos batteries when connected to AC power. Continuous Power mode on the Ronin allows you to unplug the depleted battery and replace it with a fully charged one without interrupting recording.
For HDMI capability, simply attach an Atomos Connect H2S and/or S2H converter. The Ronin's compact half-rack size makes it suitable for any video production environment.
