Atomos ATOMSUMO19 Sumo19 19″ HDR/High Brightness Monitor Recorder


The Atomos Sumo 19-inch HDR is a large, 19” touchscreen production monitor with an integrated single channel 4K recorder or 4x ISO HD recorder and switcher. This version comes ready to accept V-Mount batteries (not included). Key features include:

  • 19” 1920 × 1200 touchscreen HDR display
  • Records single channel 4K up to 60 fps or 1080 up to 240 fps
  • Switches and records up to 4x HD ISO SDI inputs and program out
  • Sun hood, stand mount adapter, desktop feet, and battery plate included

Daylight-Viewable, AtomHDR Display. The Atomos Sumo’s display features a wide 10-stop dynamic range and a 10-bit signal processor, making it capable of mapping log footage, PQ, and HLG video feeds from popular cameras, game consoles, and TV manufacturers into vibrant HDR in real time. The monitor’s full 1200 cd/m² brightness means you can use the Sumo in the brightest of outdoor environments without requiring a hood. However, if the need arises we include one with the rental. 1200 nits not enough? We also include a sun hood!

Four Source Switching / Recording. The Sumo19 is capable of processing up to four full HD inputs up to 60p over SDI with built-in multiview for simple, touchscreen switching. The ISO recording feature allows you to capture up to four individual camera signals with matched resolutions and frame rates simultaneously in addition to your program out for a live edit. Genlock, LTC timecode support, and an intuitive file structure makes your post production workflow as easy as the camera auto sync!

Built for Cinema Standards. The Atomos Sumo offers full-size HDMI 2.0 that supports up to DCI 4K and UHD input and output as well as HDR automation, which includes the importing of camera settings. The 3G/6G/12G SDI inputs allow you to capture single, dual, and quad SDI RAW data from the Sony FS5, FS7, or FS700; the Canon C300 Mark II or C500; or the Panasonic VariCam LT over 12-bit DCI 4K in Cinema DNG, 10-bit Apple ProRes, or 10-bit Avid DNxHR formats. The Sumo’s high processing power lets it maintain the camera’s quality, with data rates up to 3.2 Gbps

Built-In XLR Audio. The Sumo’s built-in full-size XLR connections can power external mics, giving you balanced analog audio, dedicated meters, and frame-delay and gain adjustments. Phantom-powered mics and line-level audio are seamlessly synchronized, which means you don’t have to worry about matching in post. You can use the 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and built-in speakers for easy review.

V-Mount. This version of the Atomos Sumo includes (2) V-Mount battery plates. To help keep cost down and give you the most flexibility, we do not include any V-Mount batteries or chargers with the rental. However, we do have a variety to choose from that are available to rent separately.

Constant Power. You get two 4-pin XLR inputs for power, so that the Sumo can automatically switch power sources if one stops providing power. The Sumo also supports hot-swappable battery power via the included battery plates (batteries/charger not included).

Versatile Use. The Sumo is essentially a jack-of-all trades, whether that’s out in the field on a DIT cart, setup as a 1st AC monitor / Director’s monitor, or in the studio for the editing workflow. Whatever your needs, there’s a good chance it will excel. We include the standard desktop feet for tabletop use, as well as a Matthews VESA Monitor Mount for use on a C-stand (not included).

The first production monitor that also records 4K 12bit Raw, 10bit ProRes/DNxHR, plus 1080p60 live switching and recording

Built for Production

Rugged construction. Flexible mounting

The Aluminium alloy chassis with built-in armor houses ten mounting points around the top/bottom/side, a rear panel VESA mount and an included stand for a variety of mounting configurations. Alongside of the XLR connections for power and balanced audio, there is a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and built-in speakers. The optional mounting plates connect dual V-Lock or Anton Bauer batteries work in tandem with our patent pending continuous power system. This allows batteries to be hot swapped to ensure you are never without power in the field.


Seamlessly connect any SDI or HDMI device and convert between HDMI 2.0 and SDI (3G QuadLink/6G/12G) in any combination. Quad SDI inputs connect cameras with multiple 1.5 or 3G SDI outputs without the need for converters. HDMI 2.0 supports up to 4Kp60 input/output along with the very latest Atomos open protocol that supports HDR automation including importing of camera settings. There is also support for Genlock and LTC timecode.


12-bit Raw, 10-bit ProRes/DNxHR up to 4Kp60

Capture the RAW output from Sony FS5/FS7/FS700, Canon C300MKII/ C500 or Panasonic Varicam LT over SDI up to 12-bit 4Kp30 as CDNG or 10-bit Apple ProRes / Avid DNxHR up to 4Kp60 / 2Kp240 depending on the camera’s capability. The processing power of Sumo preserves pristine quality direct from the sensor with data rates of up to 3.2 Gbps.


Live Switch and Record up to four 1080/60p channels, 4 x ISO record and playback

Make working with multi-cam a breeze. Switch and mix a live record and stream or record 4 x HD ISO recordings using the QuadLink SDI connections. Switch between feeds on screen with cueing, cross fade and hard cuts from the locked sources or tag and adjust final edits with advanced metadata tagging preserving ISO feeds, with the desired final result infinitely editable.


Balanced XLR Monitor & Record with 48V Phantom

Eliminate the need for a separate audio recorder by using the full size XLR connections to connect and power external microphones for balanced analogue audio with dedicated meters and adjustments for frame delay and gain. 48V phantom mics or line level audio are all seamlessly synchronized for the most advanced audio feature set in a monitor today. There is also a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and built-in speakers for on set instant immersive review or complete internal recording review anytime anywhere with clients or production team.


In the field & the studio

Sumo’s 19” 1920×1080 10-bit LCD panel is driven by the AtomHDR engine which precisely maps the Log/PQ/HLG from popular cameras, game consoles or TV makers to perfectly resolve 10+ stops of HDR in real time. The brightness range and vivid colours of HDR bring scenes to life either on the monitor itself, or when output to larger HDR/Rec709 displays for on set review. It can also be used with popular NLE or grading suites for affordable HDR or SDR editing or grading in the studio.


1200nit 19” calibrated 1920×1080 monitor

The extremely bright 1200nit display means you can accurately monitor, even when outside in full daylight. Additionally, for the ultimate low light performance an optional hood is available. The simplicity of AtomOS means its only a single tap on screen to bring up focus peaking, 2:1/1:1 zoom, Zebra, False Colour, Frame guides, SMPTE Safe Area, Waveform, RGB parade, Vectorscope, Anamorphic desqueeze and a flexible 3D LUT implementation to upload your own LUTs as .cube files.


Calibrate for accurate colour

Like all high-end monitor’s, Sumo also has optional calibration to compensate for the natural colour and brightness drift that monitors exhibit over time. Sumo’s calibration input lets you use X-Rite’s i1DisplayPro to always ensure accurate HDR and Rec709 monitoring.


Never go without power

The optional mounting plates connect dual V-Lock or Anton Bauer batteries that work in tandem with our patent pending continuous power system. Sumo automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low, allowing the drained battery to be hot swapped to ensure you are never without power in the field.


Media solutions that are affordable, time saving and convenient

Sumo records using our patented Master Caddy system. High capacity and widely available 2.5″ SSD’s provide an affordable solution for long recording times. We’ve tested and approved over 20 drives for Sumo (atomos.com/drives) that neatly slot into the provided Master Caddy or use the custom Atomos caddy from G-Technology to integrate directly into their EV series of Raid and desktop solutions for the ultimate in workflow efficiency.
