Atomos release the first production monitor that records 4K 12bit RAW, 10bit ProRes/DNxHR, plus 1080p60 live switching and recording - Atomos SUMO. A on-set and in-studio 4Kp60 HDR 19" monitor/recorder.
Most of Atomos' products have been more compact and on-camera monitor/recorders such as the Shogun Flame & Ninja Inferno. The release of the Atomos SUMO is very exciting because this is a larger monitor making it well suited for studio and field monitoring.
“Seeing innovation come to life is the most exciting part of making technology products. Sumo is one of the most remarkable video products I have worked on.” said Jeromy Young CEO and co-founder of Atomos. “Versatile and highly advanced yet simple to use, it covers all kinds of high quality production from end to end at a fraction of traditional costs. The Atomos Sumo is truly revolutionary”.
For the first time, you on-set production monitors can be HDR capable and have recording capabilities. The Sumo's specifications and design continue to impress. Its 1920×1080 10-bit LCD panel is driven by the AtomHDR engine which precisely maps the Log/PQ/HLG from popular cameras, game consoles or TV makers to perfectly resolve 10+ stops of HDR in real time. The brightness range and vivid colours of HDR bring scenes to life either on the monitor itself.
Switch and mix live recording and streaming or record 4 x HD ISO recordings using the QuadLink SDI connections. The SUMO gives you abilities to 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, with the desired final result infinitely editable.
