Atomos Sumo 19″ HDR/High Brightness Monitor Recorder 4K
With its large, bright color-accurate 19″ LCD screen and 4K recording capabilities, the Atomos Sumo 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.
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 from a connected computer.

High-Quality Recording

Capture the raw data stream output from Sony’s FS5, FS7, or FS700, Canon’s C300 Mark II or C500, or Panasonic’s VariCam LT over SDI at rates up to 5.7K at 30p (with compatible cameras) as ProRes Raw/Raw HQ, Cinema DNG, 10-bit Apple ProRes, or 10-bit Avid DNxHR. The processing power of Sumo preserves pristine quality direct from the camera, with data rates up to 3.2 Gbps.

HDR Processing

The Sumo’s 19″ 1920 x 1080 10-bit LCD panel is driven by the AtomHDR engine which precisely maps log, PQ, or HLG video feeds from popular cameras, game consoles, or TV manufacturers to resolve 10 stops of HDR in real time. The brightness range and vivid colors of HDR bring scenes to life, either on the monitor itself or when outputting to larger HDR/Rec 709 displays for on set review. It can also be used with popular editing software programs or grading suites for affordable HDR/SDR editing or grading in the studio.

Daylight-Viewable LCD Screen

The bright 1200 cd/m² display means you can accurately monitor SDR signals, even when outside in full daylight. A sun hood is included in this kit, as an additional light control.

Versatile I/O Options

Seamlessly connect an SDI or HDMI device and convert between HDMI 2.0 and SDI (Quad 3G/6G/12G) in any combination. Quad SDI inputs connect cameras with multiple 1.5 or 3G-SDI outputs without the need for converters or four separate video inputs for multiview display or ISO recording up to 1080p. HDMI 2.0 supports up to DCI 4K and UHD input and output, along with the very latest Atomos open protocol that supports HDR automation, including importing of camera settings. There is also support for Genlock and LTC timecode.

Versatile Functionality

Using multiple inputs, you can record and play back up to four HD video channels, live. Leveraging the Sumo’s XML capabilities, you can switch and mix a live recording, and stream or record four HD ISO recordings. Switch between feeds on-screen with cueing, crossfade, and hard cuts from the locked sources, or tag and adjust final edits with advanced metadata tagging preserving ISO feeds, with the desired result infinitely editable.

Built-In XLR Audio

Eliminate the need for a separate audio recorder by using the full-size XLR connections to connect and power external microphones, for balanced analog audio with dedicated meters and adjustments for frame delay and gain. Phantom powered (48V) mics and line-level audio are all seamlessly synchronized, so there’s no need to match in post. There are also a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and built-in speakers, for on set instant or playback review with clients or the production team.

Continuous Power

Dual 4-pin XLR inputs for power means that the Sumo can automatically switch power sources should one stop providing power. In the field, a separate power bracket can be used to supply the Sumo with power from V-Mount or Gold Mount batteries. When one battery dries up, you can hot swap it for a fresh one without interrupting the shoot.


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.

Client/Director’s Monitor

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.

Studio Monitor

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, you can be sure that your color-corrected images will translate through the post-production pipeline.
