Atomos SUMO19 Overview

With its large, bright color-accurate 19" LCD screen and 4K recording capabilities, the Atomos Sumo 19" HDR/High Brightness Monitor Recorder/Switcher 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. The AtomOS 9.2 firmware update enables SDI quad-HD switching and five-channel recording, which allows you to record and switch up to four ISO channels in a resolution up to 1080p60, as well as recording the program. An Apple Final Cut formatted XML is also created when using multistream recording, making it easy to edit your program in post.

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 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

Quad-HD Live Switching and 5-Channel Recording

The AtomOS 9.2 firmware update enables SDI quad-HD switching and five-channel recording, which allows you to record and switch up to four ISO channels in a resolution up to 1080p60, as well as recording the program. An Apple Final Cut formatted XML is also created when using multistream recording, making it easy to edit your program in post.

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.

How is the audio mixed for the program output? ...

How is the audio mixed for the program output? For example I have all of my audio running through Camera A. Camera B has no audio just an sdi video output. If I switch from Camera A to Camera B could the audio from Camera A still be output to the program out? Or would the program out go silent in this scenario as Camera B has no audio?
Asked by: Bret
All active audio channels are shown in the the Audio Panel. You can choose to record from any or all of the digital (SDI or HDMI) channels from the active source input as well as analog inputs.

Is the HDMI Output simply a pass thru of the HDMI Input or will it output what is on you screen? If so has anyone used this with a HDMI to USB cable to feed into a Mac or PC as a camera input for Teams or Zoom?
Asked by: Kent
The HDMI OUT is for connection to an external monitor or other device with an HDMI input. It carries a loop-through of the incoming HDMI or SDI signal in record and standby mode, and the playback signal when the Sumo19 is in playback mode.

How well does this work as a switcher? I have 2 sdi cameras that I want to switch between and output to a single sdi output. I am also considering the Roland V-1SDI but once you start adding external monitors to the V-1SDI the price comes out to about the same as this Sumo. Can the Sumo do picture in picture, split screen, and soft transitions between shots? Or is it just a basic A/B switcher?
Asked by: Bret
At this time, there is no information that this functions as a live switcher.

Excuse my ignorance. I have 4 Sony PXW-Z90V cameras. I would like to buy a SUMO. Could someone tell me exactly what I need to record in sync the 4 channels + analog XLR audio? Also I want to send a copy of each SDI to a Blackmagic Atem Television Studio Pro HD switch. I was thinking of buying 4 Atomos accessories like this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1361556-REG/atomos_atomcscsh1_connect_convert_scale_%7C.html/overview but maybe you need something Genlock generates ... I will appreciate some good advice.
Asked by: Roberto
You could use the AIDA Imaging HDMI to Genlock SDI/HDMI Converter. The GCON-HDMI supports 1080p resolution up to 60 fps, converting HDMI sources to Genlock SDI/3G-SDI and HDMI with zero latency. While keeping the integrity of the original source feed intact, the featured Genlock Tri-Level Sync makes synchronization with other system components possible for seamless vertical interval switching between sources. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1360148-REG/aida_imaging_gcon_hdmi_hdmi_genlock_converter_with.html
