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 Raw, ProRes, and Avid DNx with playout to Dolby Vision.

What type of calibration software can be used to ...

What type of calibration software can be used to calibrate the display? Is this display a true 10-Bit panel, or and 8-Bit FRC, like Atomos Sumo Monitor/Recorder?
Asked by: Willian
Hello Willian, the product has yet to be released so we haven't see how the calibration works but you can assume it should be similar.
