Good news for all Sumo 19 users who often make multi-camera productions: Atomos gives its Sumo 19 HDR monitor/recorder/switch the convenient ability to record up to five 1080p60 streams simultaneously as either Apple ProRes or Avid DNx (at up to 60 fps) in the form of four different ISOs and the program stream, all written to the same SSD drive without the need to genlock the corresponding cameras, which was the case before the update, using the recently released AtomOS 9.2 firmware update.

It can be switched between channels in real time at the touch of a button and the resulting video can be recorded on the separate fifth channel and output via either HDMI or HD-SDI. Each switching operation is also recorded as a metadata cut/edit point in a parallel recorded XML file on the hard disk.
The ISOs, including the edits, can then be imported directly into the editing program&s timeline, where they can be easily fine-tuned or reworked. The touch screen can be configured to react differently to single and double tips, recording either a hard cut or a fade into the XML file. This tells the NLE what type of aperture to use.
The AtomOS 9.2 firmware update for the Sumo 19 can now be downloaded free of charge from Atomos.
