Broadcast features for everyone

AtomX CAST is for video creators and anybody who wants to make broadcast quality multi-camera programs simply and quickly from anywhere. It is also for anyone that wants to add professional broadcast quality features to their online meetings, presentations, remote learning/training, virtual conferences, demonstrations or engaging corporate videos. Best of all, the CAST is simple and easy to ease — you don’t need to be a video professional to achieve great looking results.

Easy To Use - Simple Switching

The flexible control options allow you to use either the touchscreen or the physical buttons to switch between sources when deciding what should be on screen at any one time for broadcast. The illuminated buttons for each input and coloured LED lighting for Program and Preview status allow you to operate the CAST in dimly lit environments.

Connect Any Full HD Video Source

Connect mirrorless or DSLR cameras, video cameras, computers, consoles or even pre-recorded content via HDMI. There’s no need to worry about synchronization, as you can mix and match frame rates up to 60p, as well as interlaced and progressive HD sources automatically.

Integrates seamlessly

With the Ninja V/V+ docked in, the AtomX CAST connects via USB-C to your computer and appears as a high-quality webcam. Plug and play allows it to work immediately with all your video applications like Zoom, Teams and Skype without the need to install drivers on the computer first. Add up to 4 camera inputs to bring your presentation or meeting to the next level.

Integrated Monitor

Having an integrated monitor allows you to see the incoming signals as a multi-view display, without having to connect an additional monitor. With the Ninja V/V+ docked into the AtomX CAST you can utilize its high quality 5” touchscreen for setup and the monitor-assist tools for exposure, focus and image analysis for optimising your shots. Then switch to multi-view to see all four inputs at once, complete with audio level monitoring. Ninja CAST also offers all the same essential features available from your Ninja to allow you to nail exposure and focus on individual inputs.


One of the benefits of using CAST with a multi-camera setup, is that you can use the Picture-in-Picture function to display two inputs at the same time. Any of the four HDMI inputs can be used for a Picture-in-Picture effect over any other input with controls for size and location of the overlay. You can display a close-up of a product on your desk and display your face as a picture in picture at the same time, whilst you talk about the product.
