Atomos and Nextorage have announced a new partnership centered on the latest generation of Nextorage AtomX SSDmini. They have been designed specifically to maximize performance and reliability for Atomos recorder devices.
Purpose-built from the ground up, the engineering teams from both companies have considered every detail to create a drive that will meet the needs of the most demanding productions. The Nextorage AtomX SSDmini represents the gold standard in performance and reliability, to provide a recording solution that can be relied on with absolute confidence.
To fit the compact media slot of the NINJA V and NINJA V+ and the NEON series products, the Nextorage AtomX SSDmini are 20% smaller than conventional 2.5” SSDs. With the optional handle they can be adapted for use with the SUMO 19, NINJA CAST and SHOGUN Studio 2 too.
The housing is constructed from die-cast aluminium. It is shock-resistant (up to 1500G/0.5ms), able to survive extreme temperatures and has been designed to dissipate heat during operational use so that it doesn’t fry when a take runs long.
The reinforced, durable connector has been insert-tested over 3000 times to ensure that it can stand up to the rigours of daily use on set. For the filmmaker that’s convinced the drive is taking a beating, the Nextorage AtomX SSDmini fully supports SMART data, allowing future AtomOS drive health monitoring.
The firmware of Nextorage AtomX SSDmini has also been tuned to support sustained transfer rates required by modern formats (550MB/s read and 500MB/s write).
A level of performance that means the drives have been certified for all the formats currently supported by Atomos recorders, including Apple ProRes RAW HQ 8K at 30fps and 4K at 120fps to accommodate different file sizes and suit different types of production, the drives are available in two sizes, 500GB and 1TB selling for $229 and $439 respectively.
Nextorage and Atomos understand how critical reliable drives are and so Nextorage is providing a reassuring 3-year-warranty for the AtomX SSDmini. No registration is required.
