A sumo sized client monitor/recorder.


  • The first production monitor that also records 4K 12bit Raw, 10bit ProRes/DNxHR, plus 1080p60 live switching and recording.

    For the first time, your on-set production monitors can be HDR capable and have recording capacity. The Sumo is not only for high quality shot preview, it can record dailies, proxies or 4Kp60 masters and has playback controls away from the camera team on a high quality, calibrated 19in 1200nit 10-bit HDR screen.

    Take Sumo into the studio to use as an HDR grading monitor. Simply connect with your grading software to take Log, PQ or HLG signals from your Mac/PC and instantly see colour accurate HDR in 10-bit quality with 10 stops of dynamic range.

    As of April 2018 the SUMO supports PRORES RAW.
