AtomOS 8.41 Firmware for Sumo19 and Sumo19M

Atomos release new AtomOS 8.41 firmware for the Sumo HDR production monitors (Sumo19 and Sumo19m). Update version 8.41 improves on the blacks and dynamic back-light control of the previous release, adding further improved black levels and screen response.

Currently Atomos is running a FREE sunhood promotion when you buy a Sumo19 or Sumo19M before the 15th December 2017. The sunhood is a fully collapsible zipper design that securely attaches to the front bezel of the Sumo body via 1/4-20 screws.

This design allows the collapsed hood to double up as a screen protector for safe transportation. The Sumo19/Sumo19M sunhood reduces the effect of reflections onset improving your HDR experience and viewing environment, with a durable outer fabric and a soft velvet inner, making it a must for onset monitoring.

AtomOS 8.41 Firmware also adds support for the Panasonic AU-EVA1’s 6G-SDI output with audio embedding as well as support for the ARRI Alexa Mini and Amira’s 6G-SDI outputs, plus other 6G cameras and switchers. The Sumo19 gains the same SDI 1 and SDI 2 input selection touchscreen toggle from the Sumo19M.
