Atomos Shipping Sumo Production Monitor Recorder

Atomos has announced that its 19-inch 4Kp60 production monitor recorder with AtomHDR is now shipping. Ideally suited for both on-set and post production, it includes such features as AtomHDR, a 1920x1080 1200 nit high bright LCD screen, quadlink SDI and Raw recording, and a number of versatile powering options. The company said its quad HD switching function will be added via a free firmware update later in the year.

The Atomos Sumo on-camera monitor/recorder offers 4K 12bit Raw recording, 10bit ProRes/DNxHR compression, plus 1080p60 live switching and recording features. It’s driven by the AtomHDR engine, which maps the Log/PQ/HLG from popular cameras, game consoles or TV makers to perfectly resolve 10+ stops of HDR in real time. The calibration on the Sumo lets you use the i1DisplayPro from X-Rite to always ensure accurate HDR and Rec709 monitoring.

The Sumo can also be set up as a desktop HDR monitor as an editing and grading station. It features a VESA mount and an included stand for a variety of mounting configurations, and an optional mounting plate allows you to connect either two V-Lock or Anton Bauer batteries. The Sumo also includes a continuous power system that allows for hot-swapping batteries on the go without any power interruption.

The Sumo also allows users to switch and mix a live record, and stream or record four HD ISO recordings using the QuadLink SDI connections. Operators can switch between feeds on screen with cueing, cross fade and hard cuts from the locked sources, or tag and adjust final edits with advanced metadata tagging preserving ISO feeds. This means that the final result is still editable afterwards as well.

The 19-inch Atomos Sumo has an MSRP of US$2,495/2,495 Euro/ 1,995 UKP. It will be on display at the IBC 2017 Show in September.
