I bought the AtomX Cast for my Ninja V and need some help getting it started...

We'll start by addressing what exactly the AtomX Cast is.  This device turns your Atomos Ninja V into a production switcher with four HDMI inputs, which is perfect for high quality, multi camera productions.  The AtomX Cast can be purchased for ​$399, and then used with your existing Ninja V.  It can also be bundled with an additional Ninja V at $949.

Its important to note that the AtomX cast must be updated to firmware 10.7.1.  This can be done right on the Atomos website:

Check out our past Ask the Videoguys Webinar, we we discussed how to do a firmware update on your Atomos Ninja V.

The graphics on your show look a lot cooler, what are you using?

​Our new motion graphics are created using NewBlue Titler Live Complete, which we send to our TriCaster TC1 via the power of NDI.  This allows us to create motion graphics quickly and easily, share social media comments on screen, and even fix typos or add names to lower thirds live!

I need a network switch, because I have multiple NDI sources in my studio, do you have a good recommendation?

​We recommend the Netgear AV4250 Network switches, which are designed with NDI in mind, and we use directly in our studio. 

Check out our recent Netgear webinar, below, for more information on these switches.
