There was a time, not that long ago, when getting a “directors/client” monitor out on set required plenty of $$$ and the quality was so-so. The days of the bulky CRT boxy screens on set are thankfully gone and companies like Atomos are making sure we get the best possible monitor on set at a price point that is actually affordable for almost all productions. The Sumo19 and Sumo19M HDR monitors have been around for less than a year and are already taking the world of video production by storm due to their versatility and price-to-performance ratio. And now Atomos are making it even more enticing for rental houses and/or production companies to upgrade to HDR monitoring whether on set or in the studio by offering generous discounts on 2x kits of Sumo or Sumo + Shogun Inferno packages.
Atomos said this on their Facebook page:
Get yourself production ready with the new Atomos dual monitor kits. Now you can get a big cost saving by buying our amazing Sumo19 HDR production monitor/recorder in a kit with second Atomos monitor. Options are the Twin kit with Sumo19 + Sumo19, Director’s kit with Sumo19 + Sumo19M and Production kit with Sumo19 + Shogun Inferno.
