Atomos SUMO19 overview

  • 1Description

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. 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.


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 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.
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.
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 SUMO19 reviews

    Sumo 19" HDR/High Brightness Monitor Recorder is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and the most affordable HDR monitor Sumo is a great product! Monitor is great, looks exactly as their line of Flame Shogun Recorders. Menu is exactly the same, but works much faster (there is almost no lag when pressing buttons). All the functions are the same as Atomos Inferno/Shogun (there should be an update for live switching between 4 HD feeds, but it's not available yet) Fan is a bit noisy when turning on or recording, but when it's not recording it's pretty quite. I would keep it as far as possible from microphones. Battery solutions is very convenient. You can add two V-Lock or Golden Mount battery plates. One 98Wh battery will provide about 1,5 hour. With four 150Wh Batteries you can easily run whole day non-stop (the batteries are hot-swappable). There is a lot of questions about how the back of Sumo looks like, so there is photo attached (with VESA mount and battery plates.) Battery plates are not included, so you need to buy them separately and run 4-pin XLR cable from them to the monitor. A wing mount for batteries with holes is included in the package. It's possible to mount VESA 100m on top of it. You can attach legs(included) to the bottom of monitor to put it on a table/flat surface, or buy VESA mount (not included) to mount on C-Stand. The monitor comes in just a regular box, so if you going to transport it, you need a good protective case. It fits perfectly into Pelican 1650 plus you have some space for accessories. Monitor has a lot of mounting holes on top and side, so there is plenty of space to add wireless receivers and other accessories.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best daylight HDR for the cost It's packed with features. 1200 nits, recordable, and HDR with LUTs for every major camera. The only downside is if you plan to power with batteries. It runs 14.4v 6 amps natively. Probably a little more energy hungry than comparable monitors, but it does a lot more too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad not bad at all I like the size, and I love how it's very rugged and well built. For the price I'd say it it's the best hand held recorder / production monitor you can buy in the market. I do like the ability to record up to 4 cameras and so I will use this if my video assist system every fails me. The sun hood is amazing pretty much the best quality I've ever seen in a sun shade. There are 2 things I dislike about it. The 2 fans on the back are pretty loud. Out side it's no problem. If your shooting in a quite film set, sound mixer won't be happy. The other thing I would have liked is if the SSD card could fit flush into the monitor and not pop out of the side. Other than that I'm happy with my 2 sumos

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible quality control We have had our unit replaced twice with continuing problems.� Atomos support has stopped responding to emails.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought two, looking forward to the live switch firmware Early adopter, bought one on release and another a month later... Love the new sun hood, using for many location shoots as confidence monitor, Jib monitor/rec, talent monitor, etc... very bright, I had custom non glare films made. Just waiting for the live switch firmware to complete the promise of this that I saw at NAB. mainly for multi cam iso hd dit recording

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken promises? I’ve replaced once with a high frequency hum and I’ve been (as we all have) for them to release the ability to view 4 cameras at once.
    Date published: 2018-03-09
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware The idea of being able to record 4 sources in one device sounds awesome. It's doable, but keep in mind: When in the multi-input (4x ISO) mode, the sumo require you to have all of your input sources genlocked, as well as all having the same frame rate and resolution. The Sumo 19 can accept up to 4 inputs at up to 1080p60 each. Some cameras have the ability to be genlocked directly from an external signal generator, like the AJA Gen10. The signal generator sends a "Black Burst" or "Tri-Level Sync" signal to each camera as a reference. The cameras sync up their output signal to match the incoming reference signal, and all of your sources are genlocked. Some cameras even have the ability to function as a signal generator for other video sources. My UX180 Cameras, do not. So I was out of luck. Now, ordering it from Canada, and returning the item is another nightmare. B&H will refund your money, but in order to get you duties and taxes, you'll have to jump through fire and fill out forms that are not user friendly, I think they purposely (The Government) make it hard so they can keep your money. If you are going to use this monitor as a single input reference monitor, you may just love it :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Receive a new one from Atomos Had a problem with my first Sumo which was not working at unboxing and was away in production...Finally I send it back to Atomos and they just sent me a new one which is working, doesnt try it correctly cause bought it for the 4 input function so I m waiting for the update now. Special Thanks to Roger Cheow from Atomos for his support on resolving my issue.
