Watch: The Atomos 4K 12-Bit RAW Sumo's Insane Feed Switching in Action

The "everything-in-one" multi-cam switcher is truly a sight to behold.

Atomos has given us a monitor recorder on steroids. The 19” HDR 1200nit 10+ stop panel boasts 4K 12-bit RAW or 10-bit 422 Pro 422 ProRes/DNxHR.

CEO Jeremy Young walks us through the Sumo's most intriguing ability: live-switching and the capacity to record up to four ISO channels of 1080/60p video that you can mix with cuts and fades using QuadLink SDI connections. As demonstrated in the video above, Atomos gives you the power to switch between feeds on the screen via crossfade or hard cuts.

That's what I'm curious about, too. If the color accuracy and calibration holds up with something like a FSI monitor - this thing is a beast of a product.

The specs say it is an 8+2, so, no. It's better than a regular 8 Bit monitor, but used dithering to get the color of 10-bit.
