Product Detail

Atomos RONIN Portable Recorder/Player/Monitor is a smart solution for both fixed-facility and live 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. Like the Samurai, it can operate on location with battery or DC power, but it can also be used in a fixed facility, rack-mounted environment using AC power. 

In addition, the Ronin has balanced XLR input and output, 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.

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.
