The new Sumo 19-inch production monitor recorder has just started shipping, offering multi-camera recording for HD cameras, along with Raw Ultra HD/4K in HDR.
It has a 1200-nit high brightness display for operation in daylight, and offers on-set HDR monitoring driven by the AtomHDR engine – including Log to HDR and PQ/HLG live conversion and playout. It also has a full range of exposure and focus assist tools and LUT capabilities, and can record 12-bit 4K 25/30p from most Raw-output-capable cinema cameras, as well as a wide range of 4K 50/60p, UHD, 2K and HD (up to 240fps) video signals, including 10-bit 422 ProRes or DNxHR.
The 1920×1080 10-bit LCD panel will also be able to live switch between four separate HD inputs and record ISOs for each, to mix a live recording complete with cueing, cross fade and hard cuts. It can also double as a grading and editing monitor for laptops on location.
It costs $2,495 and features dual 12G-SDI inputs, alongside quad 3G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 connections (with conversion between HDMI and SDI), as well as two balanced XLR inputs with 48V phantom power, plus a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and built-in speakers.
Optional mounting plates connect two V-Lock or Anton Bauer batteries, which can be hot swapped to ensure you are never without power, claimed the company.
