Quad-HD Live Switching&5-Ch recording
With its large, bright color-accurate 19" LCD screen and 4K recording capabilities, the Atomos Sumo 19" HDR/High Brightness Monitor Recorder/Switcher can be implemented to enhance professional video workflows in both production and post-production. On set, the Sumo's HDR capabilities enable cinematographers to realize more of a cinema camera's dynamic range when shooting in log or raw formats.
All the built-in monitoring tools are also compatible with the HDR rendering, updating to accommodate the larger dynamic range. Additionally, the Sumo can record incoming DCI and UHD 4K video in various flavors of Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHR to Master Caddy II storage media. With supported cameras, ProRes Raw/Raw HQ recording is also possible, for more flexibility in post-production. The AtomOS 9.2 firmware update enables SDI quad-HD switching and five-channel recording, which allows you to record and switch up to four ISO channels in a resolution up to 1080p60, as well as recording the program. An Apple Final Cut formatted XML is also created when using multistream recording, making it easy to edit your program in post.
Back in the studio, the HDR capabilities of the Sumo are again beneficial; enabling editors and colorists to see deeper into the captured image information. The 10-bit image processing, combined with the 10-bit FRC capable LCD panel, shows subtle gradations in recorded footage whether playing back directly from recording media or a connected computer. The display itself can be calibrated to maintain color accuracy over the Sumo's lifetime.
On the DIT Cart
Get HDR on set in real time with on-the-fly log to HDR and PQ (Perceptual Quantizer)/HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) playback, complete with mission-critical monitoring tools such as waveform, focus peaking, false color, and vectorscope on the calibrated screen. Beyond monitoring, with DCI 4K, UHD, 2K, and 1080p recording, you can generate instant dailies to readily available SSD media.
1st AC Monitor
The large 19" panel gives focus pullers access to a high-quality HD image with focus assist tools such as peaking and 2:1/1:1 zoom. The robust aluminum-alloy chassis ensures that this monitor can be moved and reset for every shot during the production.
Remap incoming flat-looking log footage to HDR for a more exciting and true-to-life preview of the footage. Full playback controls and XML file tagging means that a director can review footage and create an instant lightweight ProRes LT copy, with baked-in LUTs and audio, to the onboard SSD. You can choose to view both log and standard gamma images with or without looks applied, with quick toggling between them for ease of comparison.
In the studio, you can leverage the HDR capabilities of the Sumo for accurate monitoring. With a 10-stop dynamic range and 10-bit processing combined with X-Rite calibration, you can be sure that your color-corrected images will translate through the post-production pipeline.
Quad-HD Live Switching and 5-Channel Recording
The AtomOS 9.2 firmware update enables SDI quad-HD switching and five-channel recording, which allows you to record and switch up to four ISO channels in a resolution up to 1080p60, as well as recording the program. An Apple Final Cut formatted XML is also created when using multistream recording, making it easy to edit your program in post.
