Atomos Announces Affordable Sumo 19M Production Monitor

Atomos 19M
Atomos launches a slimmed down version of its Sumo19 monitor for filmmakers.

The Sumo19 was shown off at NAB this year and now Atomos has released a monitor-only variant dubbed Sumo19M, ideal for professional shooters looking for an affordable solution on set. Priced at just $1,995, the Sumo19M monitor has many of the same features as its counterpart but lacks the ability to record. 

The 19" HDR monitor touts a 1920 x 1080 resolution with 1200 nit brightness and wide viewing angle capable of displaying 4K and HD sources. The redesigned interface provides easy access to scopes on the screen as an overlay. It can accept up to 4K 60p or HD 240p over HDMI or the dual 12/6/3G-SDI inputs. Additionally, there are dedicated input selection buttons on the touchscreen user interface to make A/B comparisons. 

HDR friendly, Atomos' AtomHDR engine provides easy HDR monitoring where you can easily set correct exposure for HDR or Rec 709. It comes with Log gamma settings pre-installed and custom LUTs can be stored and displayed which are loaded via a standard 2.5" drive from the Atomos Master Caddy.

The aluminium alloy chassis with built-in armor houses sixteen 1/4" and eight 3/8" mounting points around the top/bottom/sides. A rear panel VESA mount and included feet offer a variety of mounting configurations. Additionally, optional mounting plates connect dual V-Lock or Anton Bauer batteries and Sumo19M automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low, allowing the drained battery to be hot-swapped. For connectivity 2 x 12G/6G/3G SDI and 1 x HDMI 2.0 are available. 

Tech Specs: 

  • 19”
  • 1920 x 1200 resolution 
  • 120 PPI
  • 16:9 native aspect ration 
  • Rec 709 HDTV color gamut

It's nice, but I'd rather drop the extra $500 and get the recording features as well!

I'll Pass, The 7" BM Video Assist, more affordable and I get Dual SD Card Recorders at 4K. I like quality but I like to not spend a lot of money.

So you're comparing a 7" monitor to a 19" one.
