Providing certainty of image

NEON 24 is precision on-set and in-studio 4K HDR production monitors that also record and play back. Featuring full array local dimming (FALD) to achieve1000nit/cdm2 full screen brightness, 0nit / cdm2 Black point and a 1500nit HDR peak brightness. With wide gamut DCI P3 coverage, built in LOG transforms for HDR monitoring and custom 3D LUTs for SDR the NEON series provide accurate monitoring for either production or post.

Color Managed Display Pipeline

The AtomHDR engine provides the ability to accurately manage your input and display Gamma/Gamut. Selectable monitor modes allow you to work in either SDR or HDR project settings, that match both camera acquisition settings, or defined delivery standards including Rec.709, Rec.2100 HLG or ST.2084 PQ. NEON provides native accurate color with DCI-P3 coverage. Wide color gamuts, such as BT.2020, are accurately processed by the AtomHDR engine to deliver consistent representations. Built in transforms, allow for the conversion of LOG to HDR standards or utilise 3D LUTs for SDR, to monitor with a specified look or exposure compensation. Downstream output options also provides for conversion between standards to best suit the target display with options for SDR, LUTs or HDR.

Flexible and Upgradeable I/O

The foundation of the NEON platform is a modular approach that ensures the I/O of the monitor is both easy to maintain, replace and ultimately upgrade without having to take the panel out of commission. The Master Control Unit (MCU) is the brain of the NEON with support for HDMI 2.0 for both in and loop out, which provides support for video input at 4096 x 2160 4k DCI at up to 60p.

The MCU firmware is easily upgradable and allows the upload and storage of up to 8 x 3D LUTs in its internal memory or can use a 2.5” HDD or SSD to store an unlimited library that can easily be uploaded to the NEON via the AtomRemote App** on iOS. The MCU offers a second level of expansion via the Xpansion port and NEON includes the AtomX SDI module which provides 2 x 12G SDI. The configurable ports allow for input of up to 4k60p video.

As standards and interfaces develop, both the MCU and Xpansion port modules can be changed and upgraded to meet your needs without needing to change the entire monitor.
