Atomos AO-ATOMNEO311 (AO_ATOMNEO311, AO/ATOMNEO311, AO ATOMNEO311) Neon 31-inch 4K HDR Production Monitor 

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. Atomos 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. Atomos 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.

Certainty of image for the entire crew

Neon is a series of precision on-set and in-studio 4K HDR monitor-recorder production workhorses where reliable and trustworthy monitoring is essential. The Neon comes in four sizes (17”, 24”, 31” and 55”) that can be synced together to provide an ecosystem of field monitors where accuracy of image representation and consistency of image is critical between crew members...all controlled by the Atomos App. The Neons’ best-in-class 512 zoned dynamic backlight displays provide a calibrated 4KDCI 180-degree perfect viewing, 10-bit DCI-P3 100% color coverage, and 1,000,000:1 HDR-ready contrast for cinematographers to maintain exposure and creative look.

Directors can make more creative on-set decisions, viewing perfect images in TV and Cinema standards at all times. Camera assistants and focus pullers can trust the ultra-sharpness of an actor's eyes. Editors and color graders can lock down the director’s creative intent from shot to shot, frame by frame and review it across varying displays from SDR to HDR – accurately in real-time. With the built-in 4Kp60/HDp240 Apple ProRes RAW recorder capturing each take, Neon enables quick review and real-time playout with Dolby Vision to reality test content on domestic TVs. With Neon, Atomos has reimagined the role of the reference monitor to meet the HDR challenges of modern TV and film production.

Four sizes for flexibility in any production

The Neon comes in 17”, 24”, 31” and 55” screen sizes, and complements other Atomos products such as the Shinobi SDI, Ninja V, Shogun 7 and Sumo 19 to provide a flexible ecosystem of field reference monitors. Neon allows you the flexibility of utilising your Atomos on low budget productions with HDMI 10-bit uncompressed video cameras, right up to 12G-SDI 12-Bit, 4Kp60 RAW from the best cinema cameras in the world.

Cinema and Episodic TV Production

The Atomos field monitor ecosystem is an online powerhouse and offline workhorse to speed up the time from idea to final exhibition. Directors and cinematographers can record online quality of ProRes RAW recording at the same time integrating into the ARRI workflows. This brings cinema production at the fraction of the cost of current approaches where HDR monitoring varies from crew member to crew member. Atomos brings certainty of the recorded image from camera operators, focus pullers, to make up and sound recordists, to editors and color graders. Directors can tag takes while reviewing footage on-set which the Editor can pick up after importing into an NLE, and can be confident that what they saw on-set will look the same when they get to the edit suite. A Dolby Vision compatible monitor can be also reviewed when output from a Neon to allow directors and producers to see a shot as it would be viewed in the living room of their audience.

Alternatively, directors can record at a lower bitrate offline quality on a Neon to record over 20hrs of footage in Prores/DNx/H.265 on an SSD (while the ARRI is recording online quality). This gives the Director to enough integrity to check shots at after each take, or to do quick test edits on-set which avoids expensive re-shoots.

Atomos App or remote control for simple operation

Neon deliberately does away with touchscreen operation and is Bluetooth controlled by the Atomos iOS App or a 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, vector scope 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.

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 color and brightness profiles for the best posisble 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.

This function is also available in playback and playout from RAW and Log recorded ProRes RAW, ProRes and DNx rushes for instant time-saving, on-set and in-studio review. Utilize playback features like slow-motion functions, insert-edits, and rearranging rushes for review and scheduling.

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 Atomos 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 colors 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 color 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 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 the out-of-the-box 4K capture capability to be upgraded to 8K later and as newer functionality and technology becomes mainstream.

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, color accuracy and detail. Colors 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.

Built for the toughest production

The Neon can withstand the most extreme production conditions with its durable aluminium chassis and polycarbonate back plate affording protection from rough handling. Neon 17, 24 and 31 additionally come in their own road case providing peace of mind that the next time you need it, it’s ready for action.

Mount anywhere

Whatever way you like to view your images, the Neon comes with flexible mounting options for any production including ARRI standard edge mounting points, VESA mount and feet for floor or desk viewing. The Neon17 and are also designed to be rack ready and will fit seamlessly into any rack environment.
