Assassinate MPEG Limitations

Bypass the highly compressed internal MPEG / h.264 compression from the camera increasing color accuracy (with 4:2:2 color sampling) and color resolution with 10-bit color (1 Billion Colors). The edit ready Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHR video files created by Ninja Assassin are visually lossless with each frame being captured in full resolution (I frame recording) just like film.
