Atomos recently launched the new Neon 17-inch and Neon 24-inch HDR monitor-recorders. The devices will begin shipping in November and address the need for accurate monitoring in production and post-production processes.

Both the Neon models are efficient in accuracy and provide consistent SDR/HDR monitoring, per Atomos, in-depth recording functionality for shot review or render free output delivery to Apple ProRes or Avid Dnx at up to 4K DCI 60p. The devices’ screens are factory calibrated, though they can also be user calibrated with an optional USB calibration cable and Xrite 11 Display Pro Plus.
