The new neon monitors come in four screen sizes: 17 inch, 24 inch, 31 inch and 55 inch. Unlike conventional monitors, the new Atomos displays feature a recorder that can record Apple ProRes RAW, ProRes HQ, 422, LT AVID DNx, HQX, HQ, SQ, LB and Cinema DNG RAW. The monitors are operated via Bluetooth (not via touch like the previous SUMO).
The Atomos Neon HDR Cinema Monitor Recorders are operated via Bluetooth.
With a brightness of 1,000 Nits, all models should not only be HDR-capable but also have a real 10-bit display that should cover one hundred percent of the DCI-P3 color space. The designation of the new device class also clearly indicates the intended use: As HDR Cinema Monitor recorders, they can "only" serve as preview monitors on the editing system, but should also enable HDR-true preview possibilities for cameramen and directors on the set. And they should also be able to record immediately. The main difference between the models is the resolution:
The 17-inch model has only 2K resolution (2048 x 1080 / 142ppi ), while the 24- and 31-inch models with real DCI 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 / 193ppi and 147ppi respectively) stand out. The largest 55 inch model, on the other hand, has "only" UHD-4K to offer (3840 x 2160 / 84ppi).
In 4K DCI / UHD can be recorded on all devices from 24 to 60p, in 2K to 120p and in 1080p even up to 240p.
The Neon17 (3.999 Dollar) and the Neon 24 (6.499 Dollar) will be delivered in August 2019. The Neon31 (7,999 dollars) and the Neon55 (16,999 dollars) will be available from September 2019. All monitors except the 55 inch model will be delivered with a case.
