This page allows you to define a network role for each NINJA on the network as either Server or Client, so that Client units can connect to the timecode network created by the Server unit. It also allows you to add other devices like audio recorders to the network via Bluetooth. The settings that appear on this menu page will vary, depending on the network role of the NINJA V. Some settings will only appear when your NINJA V is set to Server mode, whilst others will only appear when it is set to Client mode. See Network role below for more information.
The AirGlu RF - SYNC network menu may not display connected AirGlu devices when using the ATOMOS CONNECT, but the client devices will receive Timecode and display a SYNC Network ID.
Tap to cycle between the options to set the network role for the NINJA V as either Server or Client. The ‘Server’ unit will then provide the timecode source for all ‘Client’ units on the network. For any other NINJA that you want to sync with, ‘Client’ should be selected as the Network Role on it’s Sync Config page. This allows the Client units to connect to the timecode network created by the Server unit.
Once you have finished setting up your Server unit, tap Start Network to toggle the Sync network on and off. Note that on Client units you will have a Join Network switch instead of Start Network.
When this setting is ‘on’, the client unit will connect to the Sync Network created by the Server unit. Tap to toggle on and off.
Use the ‘-’ and ‘+’ to select an RF channel between 1-12. Changing the RF channel can help in situations where you are experiencing interference from other devices. Ensure that the RF channel on any Client units is set to the same RF channel as the Server unit.
When this setting is enabled, tapping record on the Server Unit NINJA V will cause any other NINJA V or GoPro on the network to start recording as well.
On Client units, Network FPS will be displayed and the frame rate will match the frame rate of the server unit.
