The NEON features a Master Control Unit that runs the AtomosOS, controlling the monitor. The Master Control Unit is user-replaceable, so you can have the latest Atomos technology without having to replace the entire monitor. Remote control over your NEON is via a downloadable app and your iOS mobile device. Input your video for display via HDMI or SDI (using the included SDI expansion module) and the monitor displays your video. It can also capture ProRes and DNx to a 2.5" SSD (not included) in the Master Caddy II or to a separately available AtomX SSDmini. The monitor features loop-through and cross conversion outputs, and it supports both Rec 709 and Dolby Vision.

The NEON Lineup of Monitor/Recorders
The NEON line is a series of precision on-set and in-studio 4K HDR monitor/recorders that can be synced together to provide a consistent image display and recording system. Multiple NEON monitors, up to 1000, can all be controlled by the Atomos app running on a single iOS mobile device. This allows you to have each camera outputting to its own NEON, and the synced up NEONs will record footage with matching timecode.
Brightness
The NEON features a brightness range of 0.002 to 1000 cd/m2.
The App
NEON uses Bluetooth to connect to your iOS mobile device running the Atomos iOS app that controls the built-in AtomosOS. The app provides controlled playback, slow motion, frame-by-frame analysis, and preview tools. Multiple NEONs sync to each other using sub-gigahertz RF that gives them a range up to 656'.
Imaging Tools
Imaging tools include focus peaking, exposure, calibration, zoom, waveform monitor, RGB monitor, vectorscope, and LUT selection.
SDR or HDR
Whether a project is SDR or HDR, the NEON can be configured to match camera acquisition settings or defined delivery standards, including Rec.709, Rec.2100 HLG, and PQ (ST.2084). When monitoring with NEON, color stays consistent at every stage of the production pipeline. This ensures that images look their absolute best with no unexpected surprises during the shoot, the edit, the grade, or quality control (QC).
Compatibility
The NEON series is compatible with a variety of HDMI or SDI cameras and other SDI sources. It supports HD (1080) up to 120 fps via HDMI and DCI 4K up to 60 fps, and it features 12G or Dual 6G or lower resolutions and frame rates via 1.5/3G SDI up to 2K60 with up to 12 channels of embedded audio. SDI 3G and 12G input and output make it easy to loop signals through a NEON to other devices on set or in the edit suite. HDMI sources without HDCP are supported at 4K up to 60 fps or HD up to 120 fps with up to eight channels of audio and detection of HDR info frame to automatically match the input signal type.
Recording
Each recording can be reviewed instantly on the NEON without the need to offload media. Files are captured as 10-bit 422 to industry-standard Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD. AtomRemote offers options to configure scene/shot/take file naming, including rich metadata that can be used by editing software or asset management solution for orchestration.
Removable Cover Glass
The cover glass of the NEON can be removed to help minimize any reflections.
Inputs and Outputs
The NEON is ready for your HDMI production out of the box, supporting HDMI 2.0b. The included SDI Expansion Module provides you with 12G-SDI in, out, and loop-through, as well as cross conversion between SDI and HDMI and vice versa.
Video Output
The monitor outputs to Rec.709, HLG, PQ, LUT, and it can display in SDR or HDR, converting as necessary to Rec.709, HLG, PQ, and LUT.
Flexibility
You can record in online quality at 4Kp60 in real time with ProRes, and Avid DNx with playout to Dolby Vision.
