Atomos AtomX Cast HDMI Switching Dock for Ninja V and V+ in More Detail
Broadcast quality for anyone
The expansion unit AtomX CAST is not only for video creators but for anyone who wants to make broadcast quality multi-camera programs from anywhere. The switcher lets you easily make any type of online meetings more engaging through your regular service. You don’t need to be a video professional to achieve great looking results with Atomos Cast.
Flexible control options allow users to operate the device through the touchscreen or physical buttons to ‘switch’ between sources when deciding what should be on screen at any time during a broadcast. The buttons are illuminated for each input letting you work even in dimly lit environments.
Connect any full HD video source
Any device can be connected through the HDMI inputs including mirrorless and DSLR cameras, video cameras, computers, consoles and even pre-recorded content. Frame rates can be mixed and matched at any rate up to 60p and Cast can also mix interlaced and progressive HD sources automatically.
AtomX CAST connects via USB-C to a computer when the Ninja V or V+ is docked, appearing as a high-quality webcam. Plug and play operation allows it to work immediately with all video applications like Zoom, Teams and Skype without any special drivers. You can add up to 4 camera inputs to take any presentation or meeting to the next level.
Incoming signals and program out are viewable with the integrated monitor. With the Ninja V/V+ docked you can use the high quality 5” touchscreen to setup and employ monitor-assist tools for exposure, focus and image analysis to optimise shots. You can then switch to Multiview to see all four inputs simultaneously along with audio level monitoring.
Add branding and graphics
Dedicated functions let you easily add logos and graphics to enhance brand perception. Whatever you want to add is simple including custom graphics with transparency, logos and other on-screen information.
Picture in Picture
With the multi camera feature any of the HDMI inputs can be used to create Picture in Picture displays of two inputs at the same time, with controls to adjust size and location of the overlaid image. For example you can display a product close-up while showing your face as you talk about a product.
Portable and configurable
Whether you work solo or in a team Ninja CAST is lightweight and portable, working with any size of camera. If you’re in a production team you can connect a second monitor for secondary viewing.
Advanced workflow ready
AtomX CAST is a fully functional stand-alone switcher when connected to external recorders, but it can also be used for more advanced video work when connected to a computer where it does the heavy lifting with dedicated external video processing. Add AtomX CAST as a media source in OBS, X-Split and VMix to make use of software application additional graphics and scene configuration while using the CAST for video input switching.
Broadcast quality switching and recording
With professional 10bit/4:2:2 inputs you get broadcast quality switching, as well as the ability to record in high quality codecs like Apple ProRes or Avid DNx.
AtomX CAST can also stream to your favourite streaming host, output a broadcast quality video signal to a local display, digital signage or video wall, and record with high quality edit-ready video codecs.

More of us are having online meetings and presentations as the world becomes ever more connected. With this in mind Atomos designed the AtomX Cast HDMI Switching Dock to enable anyone of any skill level to create far more professional broadcasts or streams. To this end options are endless when a Ninja V or Ninja V+ (8K) is connected to this clever expansion device. Whether you’re a solo Youtube content creator, work in a production team or deliver senior product demonstrations the AtomX Cast is as easy to use as it is versatile. You can overlay graphics, logos, mix different input signals, create picture in picture effects and monitor audio straight from the device.
Operation is also simple thanks to the inclusion of illuminated physical buttons as well as a touchscreen and you can even work with pre-recorded video through one of the four HDMI inputs. You will need a camera and lens of course, and the better quality they are the more you can achieve. If you have a bright aperture lens you can create cinematic-style shallow depth of field which simply isn’t possible with a standard webcam. Even if you have an older HD camcorder with HDMI output great looking video can be created. If you want to stand out from the crowd with pro quality broadcasts the Atomos AtomX Cast for Ninja V and V+ is an easy to use solution straight out of the box.
You can also get the Atomos AtomX NinjaCast Bundle with a Ninja V Recorder and AtomX Cast for everything you need if you don’t already own a recorder.
