At the NAB show Atomos CEO Jeromy Young demonstrated the soon to be released ISO recording functions of the Sumo19 HDR production monitor recorder. The next version of AtomOS for the Sumo19 will allow for recording of four synchronous HD sources as separate ISOs. It will also allow selection of which source is the active program out.
You can select which of the 4 sources you want to record. You can switch between them. A green button will tell you what you are recording. You can monitor at all 4 sources or an individual one. When montoring one, you have indications in the bottom of the screen that tells you what you are recording.
In a later implementtion you can even integrate the transition in the recording. A slide or a hard cut.
Multicam project for Final Cut Pro X
Atomos is making an XML multicam project directly in the Sumo 19. It will open up with all the switching and the files in the background.
More complex switching and metadata cuts will follow in a subsequent release.
The Sumo19 can now also record ProRes RAW from a range of cinema cameras from Sony, Canon and Panasonic. For full details visit www.atomos.com
