Atomos SUMO19M Overview
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.
