Color Managed Display Pipeline
NEON provides a true Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) Broadcast Video Monitor (BVM) reference and includes tools to support accurate calibration to the Rec.709 standard with calibrated 100nit peak luminance and D65 white point. At the press of a button the NEON switches modes to provide a stunning High Dynamic Range (HDR) preview with support for both HLG and PQ formats.
Stunning Display Technology
The DCI 4K display of the NEON 24 features a best-in-class, stunningly bright panel with 0.002nit minimum luminance to 1000nit peak luminance over the whole screen, Super Wide Vision viewing angle (178 degrees >10%) and a matte finish to minimize glare and reflections. This ensures that the NEON is equally at home in the controlled environment of the edit suite or on location in the middle of the day.
Equally at home in-studio or on-set.

Patrick Wilcox of Los Angeles-based Colorways.tv utilizes the NEON to manage color pipeline on every production from set all the way through post-production. The device has proved to be so successful in this role that Colorways.tv now send a NEON to remote collaborators to ensure every team member sees the same color no matter their role.
Always the Same Color
Whether a project is SDR or HDR the NEON can be configured to match camera acquisition settings or defined delivery standards including Rec.709, Rec.2100 HLG and PQ (ST.2084). When monitoring with NEON color stays consistent at every stage of the production pipeline. This ensures that images look their absolute best with no unexpected surprises during the shoot, the edit, the grade, or quality control (QC).
Advanced Color and Conversion Options
NEON features native support for the DCI-P3 (P3) gamut, which encompasses the Rec.709 gamut. Images in BT.2020 gamut will display the up to P3, or can be transformed to P3 by using an appropriate LUT. The built-in Camera LOG settings allow for the transform of the camera output into a display color space. There are 8 LUT slots where a 3D LUT can be loaded to apply custom transformations for any HDR or SDR images. There’s additional control on the downstream feed to other devices, however NEON does not offer conversion between HDMI and SDI.
The NEON series offers control via a robust, tactile Button Bar and AtomRemote an app. The Button Bar features back-illuminated buttons and an extendible control cable. Button Bar control options include the ability to select the input mode, choose the color space, apply 3D LUTs, and manage playback.
The AtomRemote app is available for macOS and iOS devices. Its easy-to-use interface provides access to more advanced settings such as camera gamma/gamut settings, as well as the ability to control recording, playback, and the loading of 3D LUTs.
Record, Monitor, Play, Edit
The NEON series is compatible with a variety of HDMI or SDI cameras and other SDI sources. Both devices support HD (1080) up to 120fps via HDMI and 4K (DCI) up to 60fps. Both devices feature 12G or Dual 6G or lower resolutions and frame rates via 1.5/3G SDI up to 2Kp60 with up to 12 channels of embedded audio. SDI 3G and 12G input and output make it easy to loop signals through a NEON to other devices on set or in the edit suite.
HDMI sources without HDCP are supported at 4K up to 60fps or HD up to 120fps with up to 8 channels of audio and detection of HDR info frame to automatically match the input signal type.
Each recording can be reviewed instantly directly on the NEON without need to off-load media. Files are captured as 10-bit 422 to industry standard Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD. AtomRemote offers options to configure scene/shot/take file naming including rich metadata that can be used by editing software or asset management solution for orchestration.
