Atomos Sumo Director's Kit with Sumo M

by Atomos
$3,799.00

The Atomos Sumo Director's Kit with Sumo M includes the Sumo 19" Monitor Recorder and the Sumo M 19" HDR Monitor from Atomos. While both the Sumo and the Sumo M feature 19" 1200 cd/m²-bright displays, the Sumo has the advantage of being able to record incoming HD and 4K video in Apple ProRes or Avid DNx codecs to an SSD. Having both the recorder and monitor units allows for flexibility. Bring the recorder unit on set to acquire your footage, and use the monitor unit at your edit suite for HDR grading and creating LUTs to use with the recorder on set. Check out the descriptions and features below for more information on the Sumo and Sumo M.

  • Atomos Sumo 19" HDR/High Brightness Monitor Recorder

    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, 12-bit raw recording over SDI 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. The display itself can be calibrated to maintain color accuracy over the Sumo's lifetime.

    Use Cases

    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 combined with X-Rite calibration, you can be sure that your color-corrected images will translate through the post-production pipeline.

    Features

    Production-Grade Build Quality
    The aluminum alloy chassis houses 10 mounting points around the top, bottom, and side, a rear panel VESA mount, and an included stand for a variety of mounting configurations.
    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. 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.
    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 up to 12-bit DCI 4K as 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.
    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.
    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. If additional light control is required, an optional sun hood is available separately.
    X-Rite Calibration
    Like many high-end video and computer monitors, the Sumo can be calibrated to compensate for the natural color and brightness drift that monitors exhibit over time. The Sumo's calibration input lets you use X-Rite's separately available i1Display Pro to always ensure accurate HDR and REC. 709 monitoring.
    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.

  • Atomos SUMO19M 19" HDR/High-Brightness Monitor

    With its bright 1200 cd/m² panel and advanced AtomHDR processing, the Atomos SUMO19M 19" HDR/High-Brightness Monitor is designed to be instrumental in modern video workflows. On the rear panel, HDMI and SDI inputs can accept UHD and DCI 4K video signals. Depending on your workflow, both SDI and HDMI inputs can be cross converted to one another, allowing the SUMO19M to act as an interface between consumer-grade HDMI and professional SDI equipment.

    On set, the SUMO19M can function as a director's or client monitor. LUTs imported from a separately available SSD installed on a Master Caddy (a single Master Caddy is included in the box) to display a look that can be referenced further down the production pipeline to the final output. If HDR is your goal, the AtomHDR processing uses the entire brightness range of the SUMO19M, allowing the entire latitude of log-encoded videos to be displayed without the washed-out colors or clipping that can sometimes be brought about by SDR (Standard Dynamic Rage) displays.

    During post-production, the SUMO19M can function as a color-accurate studio monitor. Its ability to reproduce a wide color gamut allows you to master your footage for current SDR standards like REC. 709, and HDR standards like HLG and PQ, without having to switch displays. Clients can also view the content with a LUT to see a more pleasing image than what flat or log profiles usually provide. While on set, you may want to take advantage of the 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting options provided around the panel. Two feet are included for desktop placement in your editing or grading suite.

    Client/Director's Monitor
    Remap incoming flat-looking log footage to HDR for a more exciting and true-to-life preview of the footage. Compatible LUTs can be brought from Master Caddy media. 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. Images will pop off the bright 1200 cd/m² LCD panel, even in conditions with lots of ambient light.
    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 combined with X-Rite calibration, you can be sure that your color-corrected images will translate through the post-production pipeline.
