Atomos is adding live asynchronous switching and quad ISO recording to the Sumo 19 HDR monitor-recorder. The company said the new AtomOS 9.2 update will be released at the Inter Bee show, which begins tomorrow, November 13, in Tokyo.
That will make the Sumo 19 capable of recording isolated 1080p60 streams from up to four different camera sources while simultaneously recording a real-time switched program out to the same SSD in Apple ProRes or Avid DNx formats. The switched program can also be output on HDMI or HD-SDI. The cameras do not need to be synchronized via genlock.
The Sumo’s touchscreen can be used to switch between inputs. In one configuration, a single tap will make a hard cut to a new source while a double tap will make a dissolve. The Sumo 19 will write the edits to disk in an XML file that can be imported to an NLE timeline for further editorial attention.
