The Shinobi SDI supports up to 4KDCIp30 HDMI and HDp60 SDI in and out to connect to cameras, broadcast monitors, switchers & recorders. HDMI is perfect for DSLRs, mirrorless, video cameras, phones and tablets. SDI gives Shinobi SDI the advantage of connecting to any existing SD or HD infrastructure.

The sleek light-weight design is crafted for maximum efficiency and weighing in at just 226g/7.8oz, it is one of the lightest 4K SDI and HDMI monitors on the market, stealthily attaching to any SDI & HDMI camera setup.
The Shinobi SDI utilizes our revolutionary AtomOS 10 platform, packed with an extensive suite of scopes and one touch simple operations. Shinobi SDI includes monitoring tools for focus, framing & exposure, including Focus Peaking, 4:1 / 2:1 / 1:1 Zoom, Zebra, False Color, Frame Guides, SMPTE Safe Area, Waveform, Histogram, RGB parade, Vectorscope, Anamorphic De-squeeze, new multi-view ‘Analysis’ mode and more. Each feature customizable and interchangeable in size, best suiting the Shinobi SDI user.
At Atomos, we understand how crucial it is to always see what you’re shooting. With the new ‘Analysis’ mode, view a waveform, histogram, vectorscope while simultaneously shooting all at the same time; ensuring complete control of your image. Try switching between different waveform, histogram and vector scope options on the fly with a single touch; adjusting all scopes with a single touch – simple.
The Shinobi SDI screen utilizes the AtomHDR processing engine to displaying a stunning 10+ stops of dynamic range in real-time from Log/PQ or HLG signals; wide color-gamut mapping ensures the perfect image color is always displayed. Combined with our unique HDR monitoring features, the Shinobi SDI simplifies complexities of shooting Log and HDR, helping replicate a post-production workflow the moment it matters most, while shooting. We look after the technology, so you can focus on the storytelling.
Apply and compare your favorite looks for your camera or from your post-production team; achieving consistency in SDR or HDR across all shoots. The Shinobi SDI allows you to load internally up to eight custom LUTs, looks or profiles at any time via the SD Card Slot and instantly select between them, maintaining creative intent, always.
Accurate color-representation is key to trustworthy monitoring. Color calibrate your Shinobi SDI for ongoing accurate HDR and SDR (Rec.709) monitoring.* Color and brightness accuracy on monitors drifts over time. Calibration ensures accurate image representation at all times. Simply download the Mac/PC Atomos Calibration app. Purchase our USB to Serial cable to connect to the Shinobi SDI and gain peace of mind when in the field. *X-Rite’s i1 Display Pro calibrator
Designed exclusively for monitoring purposes, the Shinobi requires very low power – either in standby or while monitoring. Lasting round-the-clock on a single battery, have certainty with uninterrupted endurance. Longer monitoring times are covered with the in-the-box free AC adaptor.
In a live production environment, it is important that behind every camera, the operator has the highest quality monitoring. The SDI and HDMI connections allow for an infinite array of connectivity with other Atomos products; allowing the user to simply and efficiently create the ultimate production environment.
When attached to your camera, the size and weight of your monitor matters. We shaved the Shinobi down to just 222g (7.8oz) and added ¼”-20 screw mounts top and bottom for easy cage and adaptor rigging; making the Shinobi compatible with most SDI and HDMI-ready devices. The centre-mounting battery makes balancing easy and manoeuvrability instant.
