Digital filmmaking re-imagined for today’s creator

The Atomos Neon series is the beginning of a new journey for filmmakers by bringing together traditional filmmaking roles and pairing it with Atomos innovation and technology. We do this by combining RAW recording with cinema display technology for monitoring, on-screen production checking and review of creative intent, story flow and matching continuity between scenes. Neon streamlines the creative workflow from lens to viewing. We have adopted industry standard formats like ProRes RAW from major camera makers enabling the performance of ProRes and the flexibility of RAW into cinema productions and built for computer finishing. Neon performs real-time Dolby Vision processing to enable down-stream viewing on any Dolby Vision capable TV or monitor. The upshot is an on-set computer replacement merged with an ecosystem of field monitors that saves the creator time by allowing them to make more decisions in the moment of recording, playback, monitoring and editing.

Key features of the Neon line up of monitors and monitor recording displays include: 

• Seamless App control, multicamera support and functionality on-set
In an industry first, Neon deliberately does away with touchscreen operation and is Bluetooth controlled by the powerful Atomos iOS App. Recording control has never been easier for any production whether it is a single camera or a multi-camera setup. The App controls 4K recording, syncing and playback on up to 1000+ Neons via Bluetooth; and real-time production tools like focus peaking, exposure, calibration, zoom, waveform monitor, RGB monitor, vectorscope and LUT selection. The App also shortens the time between capture and final edit by allowing Neons to display real-time playback of captured shots at up to 4Kp60 in ProRes RAW, ProRes, Avid DNx and Cinema DNG. Additionally, all Neons and any Ninja V with an AtomX Sync Module attached now perfectly frame sync together with the touch of a few buttons on-set via the Atomos iOS App making for effortless importing of synced video and metadata to the editing suite at the end of filming. The metadata is embedded into the quick time .mov file and is read downstream by computer applications, including Atomos desktop software.

• Record RAW, deliver accurate Dolby Vision HDR on-set
With Neon, the innovative Atomos and Dolby partnership continue with the incredible ability to deliver Dolby Vision live on-set to any Dolby Vision capable TV or monitor. Neons’ AtomOS 10 software magically, automatically analyzes the image, queries the TV, and applies the right Dolby colour and brightness profiles in real-time for the maximum HDR image on the display or TV, all while your filming. This is a valuable on-set reference check for the creative director and client to ensure continuity of creative intent right to the living room.

• Online only – the online/offline headache gone forever 
Neon simplifies the production workflow by recording, editing, grading within the online environment using ProRes RAW, eliminating the need for conforming via an online and offline process (e.g. ARRI RAW + Avid DNx). Different exhibition formats can then be easily exported rather than through the time-consuming process of separate conforms.

• Precision HDR field monitor for the on-set digital darkroom
Neons have Atomos’ Dynamic AtomHDR technology – providing up to 512 zone backlights per display. This yields a contrast ratio from one to a million gradations on discrete parts of the image on Neon’s daylight viewable anti-reflection 1000 nit displays. With the Neon series, blacks and colours are rich and deep. Images appear to ‘pop’ with added dimensionality and detail. The precision Atomos display uses a unique combination of advanced LED and LCD technologies which together offer deeper, better blacks than rival OLED screens, but with the much higher brightness and vivid colour performance of top-end LCDs. Objects appear more lifelike than ever, with complex textures and gradations beautifully revealed. In short, the Neons offer the most detailed window into an image, truly changing the way you create visually – and because you are viewing and recording RAW, the post-production flexibility is, well, RAW flexibility.

• Captures 4K now, futureproofed for later upgrades
Display technology moves fast, so investment shouldn’t be locked into older formats and functionality. Neon is future-proofed because of the innovative Master Control Unit, a replaceable brain that allows the out-of-the-box 4K capture capability to be upgraded later as newer functionality and technology becomes mainstream. The Master Control Unit is also compatible with the AtomX expansion modules that provide SDI and NDI connectivity on top of the standard HDMI connectivity that comes with Neon.

• ProRes RAW – the best of RAW and ProRes combined
Neon captures ProRes RAW video to unlock the true potential of the RAW cinema camera and provides complete control of the video image at the highest quality possible without slowing down the edit. ProRes RAW offers the performance of ProRes and the flexibility of RAW.

Neon preserves the content’s maximum dynamic range, colour accuracy and detail. Colours are easily matched, and the extra information means the footage is more easily manipulated in post-production making it especially useful for grading and VFX shots.

In addition to ProRes RAW, Neon supports ProRes, CinemaDNG, Avid DNxHD. Capture from any HDMI, SDI or Quad Link SDI source including cameras from Nikon, Canon, Panasonic, Sony, RED and ARRI.

• Built for the toughest production environments
The Neon withstands the most extreme production conditions with its durable aluminium chassis and polycarbonate back plate. The 17”, 24” and 31” Neons additionally come packed in their own custom designed high-performance crush-proof and water-tight road case. Mounting points include VESA mounts, feet for floor or desk viewing, and ARRI-standard edge mounting points.
