Atomos Sumo 19 Quad SDI & HDMI 2.0 IN/OUT Monitor-Recorder
The Atomos Sumo 19 is designed to get the most out of video recordings by allowing the user to switch to the best resolution for viewing. It has multiple applications including field use or viewing on a HDR monitor. The Sumo 19 gets its name from the 19” inch LCD display panel with 1920 x 1080 screen resolution. It has the capability to handle output in RAW, PQ, Log or HLG formats and convert them to show more than 10 dynamic range stops in real time.
This is facilitated by the four 1080p channel live switching feature. ProRes RAW is a major feature that maximizes the potential of a RAW camera by preserving pixels at speeds of 5.7 kp30, 2kp240 DCI/HD and 4kp120 DCI/UHD. A 10-bit processor allows 10 bit 4:2:2 recording for either DNxHR codecs or ProRes at a data rate of 1.8 Gbs and 220MB/s.
Video switching is very simple as you can efficiently switch on-screen using effects such as cross fade, cues and hard cuts. The touch screen further simplifies the switching process. Atomos also recognize the value of inputs and outputs which is evident with the dual XLR inputs that are stereo balanced. Frame delay is another feature that is regularly used to synchronize microphone and line-level audio with embedded SDI and HDMI audio sources.
The output, on the other hand, includes quad SDI and HDMI sockets for compatible devices allowing you to convert related formats. The Atomos Sumo 19 stereo microphones are powered with a 48V Phantom power unit which can easily handle field recording.
Atomos have a variety of HDR High Brightness Monitor Recorders including the Atomos Sumo 19, Atomos Shogun Inferno and Atomos Ninja Inferno video recording devices. These devices do more than recording as they are viable HDR production monitors and video switchers as well. You can capture video recorded on any camera and modify the original source video any way you like.
