Go HDR Today.
In the field & the studio
Sumo’s 19 inch 1920x1080 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 colors 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.
High Bright for REC709 Outdoor Shooting
1200nit 19 inch calibrated 1920x1080 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 Color, 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.
Trust What You See
Calibrate for accurate color
Like all high-end monitor’s, Sumo also has optional calibration to compensate for the natural color 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.
