With its large, bright color-accurate 19″ LCD screen and 4K recording capabilities, the Atomos Sumo 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.
Whether producing content for broadcast or cinema distribution, you can depend on SmallHD’s 1703 P3X 17″ Studio Monitor to brightly display accurate colors in professional field, studio, and post-production settings. Each 1703 P3X is color calibrated by SmallHD to ensure consistently accurate color representation, with 100% coverage of both REC 709 and DCI-P3 color spaces. Should you find that the display requires recalibration, the Color Intelligence engine accepts LUTs from industry standard solutions. True 10-bit color depth can differentiate between 1024 levels of brightness, per channel, for smooth gradients essential for critical image analysis. While the LED backlight provides 900 cd/m² of brightness for viewing in daylight or brightly lit conditions, a special 100 cd/m² “studio mode” provides accurate brightness levels for light-controlled post-production environments.
