Aside from the launch of their new HDR production monitor, the Sumo19M, also announced was a new lineup of Atomos Connect Converters directed at broadcasters as also live event production.
There are 15 models in the line-up for Broadcast and ProAV integrators, with six colour coded families to make finding the right product for the right solution easy. Featuring conversion, signal processing and system integration boxes that Connect, Convert, Scale, Sync, Split, and Repeat video signals, Atomos' new range commanded notable interest at IBC.
"We know the way to gain the trust of integrators and broadcasters is to back our products with a three year warranty. With this bold statement, there’s no question that the Connect range will become the de facto converters for the industry,” says Atomos CEO Jeromy Young. “These converters are designed to be extremely durable and reliable yet cost-effective – making them immediately stand out from existing converters,"
"We have a Connect unit for practically everything and I’m certain they will quickly find homes in productions big and small."
The Connect Convert TC and Connect Convert 4K models also have a standout feature that adds scope and audio overlay to any connected display. Timecode, waveform and audio VU meters can be overlaid on the video signal with the toggle of a dip switch.
Each of the tomos Connect Converters is colour-coded according to use, making life easier for broadcast and AV system integrators: blue for connect, red for convert, yellow for scale, green for sync, black for split and white for repeat. Bright LEDs clearly display the status of each unit at a glance. Finding the right box and confirming its status has never been easier.
