Atomos Ninja 2 Audio Applications Guide - Using MixPre-D or Riggy-Micro
Canon just updated the firmware of the 5DMKIII to allow recording video out the 5DMKIII HDMI port. Now, external video recorders like the Atomos Ninja 2 can be used. Unfortunately, it does not include audio data via HDMI. So, another solution needs to be used for capturing audio on the Atomos Ninja 2. The Atomos Ninja 2 has a line level stereo minijack input. This can be used to interface with ENG mixers with line outputs like Sound Devices MixPre-D. Although the juicedLink Riggy-Micro is not a full line output (it is an amplified microphone level output), the Atomos Ninja 2 itself has 12dB of gain. So, the juicedLink Riggy-Micro pairs with the Atomos Ninja 2 very well. In this video you will be able to hear audio clips comparing the signal-to-noise performance using the Atomos Ninja 2 with the Sound Devices MixPre-D versus the juicedLink Riggy-Micro.
