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.

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.

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.

Atomos NEON Reviews

Magenta/Red caused by DCI-P3 Colorspace

By Liaw
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-24

Hi guys, for those of you who encountered Magenta or Red tint, it's probably because it is in the DCI-P3 colorspace. Switch it to Rec709 and you should see the familiar colors.

Disappointing

By Paul
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-06-19

Longtime Atomos fan, with several Shoguns, Sumos, Samurai and accessories. I also run a rental house for high end feature film and television production, and our workhorse monitors for those jobs has been Sony OLED 17 PVM A170 and 25 PVM A250. Since those are discontinued, I am looking for a replacement for color grading on DIT carts and was hopeful that the Neon could work. I expected that out of the box, color would likely be fairly good and contrast as well. It looks nice out of the box, but is very magenta, and I have found these to be virtually impossible to calibrate or match to our beloved Sonys. I started with CalMan since that's where we usually match displays, and it was a challenge with very confounding results. Then I bought the specific x-rite supported by Atomos' own calibration software, and it yielded different results, maybe a touch closer to our target, but still not close to satisfying our requirements to make these presentable on set. Would love to hear if someone else has had better results.

The Best

I just received my Neon 24, after waiting for over a year. For the past 7 years, I've been relying on color timing with a Flanders Scientific CM-171. This Atomos monitor is the best image I have ever seen. I'm seeing things in my grade I've never noticed before. And I am referring to SDR grading. I haven't even scratched the surface of the HDR capability, yet. All in all, a bit pricey, but, I think the cost is quite worth the image quality.

Not as good as I thought

After owning this monitor for awhile, I've revised my opinion. Calibration with 3rd party calibration software, in my case ColorSpace, reveals its shortcomings. The biggest, and most noticeable, is a very definite lack of contrast. How disappointing, since the price point indicates I could expect more. Furthermore, there's no way to calibrate HDR, since ATOMOS' cal software only works for SDR.

Terrible Rec709

By Matt

I had a similar experience as Paul calibrating with a CR-250. The default values and image were very red. I was shocked to discover this monitor needs an app just to access the menu and within that, there are no RGB gain/bias settings like most professional monitors. This makes it impossible to calibrate accurately.
