Atomos NEON HDR Cinema Monitor-Recorder for on-set and in-studio
Digital filmmaking re-imagined for today’s creator
Atomos Neon series is the beginning of a new journey for filmmakers by bringing together traditional filmmaking roles and pairing it with Atomos innovation and technology. We do this by combining RAW recording with cinema display technology for monitoring, on-screen production checking and review of creative intent, story flow and matching continuity between scenes.
Neon streamlines the creative workflow from lens to viewing. We have adopted industry standard formats like ProRes RAW from major camera makers enabling the performance of ProRes and the flexibility of RAW into cinema productions and built for computer finishing. Neon performs real-time Dolby Vision processing to enable down-stream viewing on any Dolby Vision capable TV or monitor.
Four sizes for flexibility in any production
The Neon comes in 17”, 24”, 31” and 55” screen sizes, and complements other Atomos products such as the Shinobi SDI, Ninja V, Shogun 7 and Sumo 19 to provide a flexible ecosystem of field reference monitors. Neon allows you the flexibility of utilizing your Atomos on low budget productions with HDMI 10-bit uncompressed video cameras, right up to 12G-SDI 12-Bit, 4Kp60 RAW from the best cinema cameras in the world.
Atomos App or remote control for simple operation
Neon deliberately does away with touchscreen operation and is Bluetooth controlled by the Atomos iOS App or a physical remote control. Neon has the simple-to-use AtomOS built into it so that you can use the App to access real-time production tools including focus peaking, exposure, calibration, zoom, waveform monitor, RGB monitor, vector scope and LUT selection.
Neon shortens the gap between capture and final edit with real-time recording and playback of your captured shots at up to 4Kp60 in formats including ProRes, ProRes RAW, Cinema DNG, Avid DNx. When you’ve got the take you like, tag it on-set with the App for easy identification during editing.
The App unlocks the ability to insert project specific meta-data frame-by-frame, allowing project management of a complex production to be simplified and automated so that the creator can focus on their artistic storytelling enhancements.
Record 12-Bit RAW, view & deliver accurate Dolby Vision HDR
The challenge with HDR production is maintaining the creative intent of the production at the time of shooting vs the finished product that is viewed on devices and TVs. Atomos and Dolby have teamed up to give you Dolby Vision live HDMI out, in real-time, from any SDI or HDMI HDR camera. All courtesy of AtomOS.
Simply connect your Dolby Vision capable TV or monitor to your Neon and magically, automatically, the AtomOS analyses the image, queries the TV, and applies the right color and brightness profiles for the best posisble HDR image on the display or TV. This ensures HDR footage always looks – as it was intended by the creator. This is a valuable on-set reference check for the creative director and client.
Capture 4K now, future-proofed for later
Capture technology moves fast, so your investment shouldn’t be locked into older formats and functionality. We’ve future-proofed Neon by designing it with the Master Control Unit, a replaceable brain that allows the out-of-the-box 4K capture capability to be upgraded to 8K later and as newer functionality and technology becomes mainstream.
Whatever way you like to view your images, the Neon comes with flexible mounting options for any production including Arri standard edge mounting points, VESA mount and feet for floor or desk viewing. The Neon17 and are also designed to be rack ready and will fit seamlessly into any rack environment.
