The Atomos Neon 17" 4K Recording Monitor does away with touchscreen operation and is Bluetooth controlled by the Atomos iOS App or physical remote control. Neon has the simple-to-use AtomOS built into it so that you can use the App to access real-time production tools including focus peaking, exposure, calibration, zoom, waveform monitor, RGB monitor, vectorscope and LUT selection.

Neon shortens the gap between capture and final edit with real-time recording and playback of your captured shots at up to 4Kp60 in formats including ProRes, ProRes RAW, Cinema DNG, Avid DNx. When you’ve got the take you like, tag it on-set with the App for easy identification during editing. The App unlocks the ability to insert project specific meta-data frame-by-frame, allowing project management of a complex production to be simplified and automated so that the creator can focus on their artistic storytelling enhancements.

Key Features:

Button Bar Remote Control Unit

Button Bar Remote Control Unit (BBRCU) is now included free with every Neon monitor. BBRCU is custom designed for the Neon 17 and Neon 24 HDR monitors, allowing you to flexibly control your Neon monitor without needing access to a phone or device.

  • Large backlit buttons enabling instant access to essential monitoring tools, LUT selection and more
  • Dedicated buttons for record and playback
  • Flexible mounting options
  • No need for batteries or alternative power sources
Record 12-Bit RAW, view & deliver accurate Dolby Vision HDR

The challenge with HDR production is maintaining the creative intent of the production at the time of shooting vs the finished product that is viewed on devices and TVs. Atomos and Dolby have teamed up to give you Dolby Vision live HDMI out, in real-time, from any SDI or HDMI HDR camera. All courtesy of AtomOS. Simply connect your Dolby Vision capable TV or monitor to your Neon and magically, automatically, the AtomOS analyses the image, queries the TV, and applies the right colour and brightness profiles for the best possible HDR image on the display or TV. This ensures HDR footage always looks – as it was intended by the creator. This is a valuable on-set reference check for the creative director and client.

Sync all your Neons together

If you have more than one Neon in your production, you can perfectly sync them asynchronously together using the Atomos iOS App. Simply pair the Neons through the App and select all the monitors you wish to sync. You can also sync the Neons to any Atomos Ninja V using an AtomX Sync Module attached. This means that recording control has never been easier for any production with a multicamera setup. Meta-data is captured for the entire production in every file recorded, avoiding the need for a sidecar file. At the end of filming, take each Neon’s SSD with the captured footage and meta-data, and import into your editing suite ready to go.

Precision HDR field monitor for the on-set digital darkroom

Atomos brings dynamic zone backlight technology to the entire range of Neons powered by our proprietary Dynamic AtomHDR innovations. This yields a contrast ratio from one to a million gradations on discreet parts of the image on Neon’s daylight viewable anti-reflection display. 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 your image, truly changing the way you create visually.

Capture 4K or 8K now, future-proofed for later

Capture technology moves fast, so your investment shouldn’t be locked into older formats and functionality. We’ve future-proofed Neon by designing it with the Master Control Unit, a replaceable brain that allows for upgradability as newer functionality and technology becomes mainstream. The Master Control Unit comes in two sizes, one for 4K capture and another for 8K.

Expand Neon with AtomX Expansion Modules

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. This provides total flexibility when it comes to the production environment you are operating in.

ProRes RAW – the best of RAW and ProRes combined

Capturing ProRes RAW video with the Neon unlocks the true potential of your RAW cinema camera and provides complete control of your video image at the highest quality possible. ProRes RAW combines the flexibility of RAW video with the incredible performance of ProRes. Import, edit and grade pristine video with RAW data straight from your camera sensor without slowing down your edit. These RAW files provide maximum flexibility for adjusting the look of your video while extending brightness & shadow detail. The ideal combination for HDR workflows.

Neon preserves your content’s maximum dynamic range, colour accuracy and detail. Colours can be easily matched and the extra information means footage can be quickly manipulated in post-production, which is especially useful for grading and VFX shots. In addition to ProRes RAW, Neon supports ProRes, CinemaDNG, Avid DNx via HDMI and SDI. Capture from any HDMI or SDI source including cameras from Nikon, Canon, Panasonic, Sony, RED and ARRI.
