Atomos Announces Apple ProRes RAW Support For OM SYSTEM MFT Camera

New OM SYSTEM OM-1 and ATOMOS NINJA V/V+ now enabled with DCI 4K at up to 60p Apple ProRes RAW recording.

ATOMOS has announced that the NINJA V and NINJA V+ will support recording of Apple ProRes RAW over HDMI for the new OM SYSTEM OM-1 Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera from OM Digital Solutions. With the new AtomOS 10.76 update the NINJA V/V+ will record 12-bit ProRes RAW video at the DCI 4K standard up to 60fps.

The release of the OM-1 represents a clear statement of intent for the recently formed OM Digital Solutions Corporation. This new camera fuses a distillation of 85 years of Olympus imagining technology experience and ability, and the innovative technology from OM SYSTEM. The OM-1 comes with a distinctive, robust, and lightweight magnesium alloy enclosure. The OM-1 also features autofocus and sequential shooting performance that surpasses conventional expectations of MFT cameras and marks a dramatic improvement in core performance.

The bright, accurate, HDR display of the NINJA V/V+ provides an accurate preview of the image from the OM-1 in incredible detail. The device offers the ability to choose between HLG and PQ (HDR10) standards to suit individual requirements. The 5-inch touchscreen provides access to a wide range of software tools including waveforms, false color, check focus, framing guides, LUTs and image magnification. With the NINJA V/V+ filmmakers can be confident in their technical and creative decisions during production to get the perfect HDR or SDR shot.

The OM-1 and the NINJA V/V+ can be taken anywhere at any time. Their compact form-factors mean they are suited to a variety of different rigs and types of production. They are supremely mobile, and the combined solution is equally at home when used as part of a handheld setup, positioned in a confined space, or mounted on a gimbal. The option to harness ProRes RAW in a MFT camera makes the format more accessible and introduces new creative opportunities for a greater range of filmmakers.

ATOMOS and OM SYSTEM are committed to supporting the full capabilities of ProRes RAW. In practical terms this means offering filmmakers the maximum degree of flexibility when it comes to working with the codec in post-production. Accordingly, ProRes RAW clips recorded from the OM-1 will support White Balance and ISO adjustment sliders in Apple Final Cut Pro.

Support for ProRes RAW on the OM-1 requires that the camera firmware be updated to v1.1. The AtomOS 10.76 is available for download from my.atomos.com
