The AtomHDR processing engine allows for real-time Log to PQ/HLG previewing.
5.2" Touchscreen Display
The 5.2" IPS touchscreen of the Ninja Ultra offers a 1920 x 1080 resolution with 1000 cd/m² brightness for viewing in broad daylight. The 10-bit color processing, Rec.709 color gamut, and Calibrite ColorChecker Display Pro/Plus calibration support ensure color-accurate, high-quality monitoring of your footage.
Comprehensive Color
The Ninja Ultra supports the use of select Sony, ARRI, JVC, RED, FUJIFILM, Nikon, Panasonic, and Canon log formats. Upload custom 3D LUTs to the monitor and output HDR conversion to Log, HLG, PQ, or Dolby Vision formats.
