Earlier today, Atomos launched a new desktop Control Extension for their AtomRemote app for their NEON 17 and 24-inch HDR monitor/recorders.
The new version of the AtomRemote app is compatible with Macs running MacOS 10.15 Catalina or MacOS 11 Big Sur.
AtomRemote allows users to wirelessly control all the functions of the Atomos Neon HDR monitors over Bluetooth. In the latest version 1.0.2 released days ago, users can benefit from improved user interface layout, as well as corrected UI for “legal” (broadcast) inputs.
AtomRemote app for MacOS – NEON 17 and 24
The new desktop Mac OS App allows users to wirelessly configure the input/output settings, monitor the colour pipeline as well as quick access to the list of recorded clips for playback.
In addition to the full suite of tools for image analysis, exposure and focus can be remotely turned on/off or adjusted via Bluetooth.

Currently Atomos also offers an iOS version of AtomRemote for iPhone and iPad running iOS 12 or higher.
Launched at the end of last year, the Atomos NEON HDR monitors come in two sizes – a 17 inch and a NEON 24-inch model. Aimed at professionals working as focus pullers, colorists working in grading suites, and DITs looking for 10bit HDR monitoring, the NEON range can also record 4K/60p DCI ProRes as well as DNx HR.
10bit HDR monitoring and 4K/60p ProRes recording
Furthermore, the Atomos NEON 17″ features a 1920 x 1080 panel with 10bit processing, 4K to HD scaling and option for 1:1 display pixel mapping. On the other hand, the bigger NEON 24″ sports a true 10bit 4K DCI (4096 x 2160) panel and HD/2K to 4K UHD to 4K DCI upscaling without interpolation methods.
Both monitors feature a Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) backlight technology to deliver deep blacks at 1000nits full screen HDR peak brightness. In addition, both monitors have a 180 degree viewing and a Dynamic Contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. Moreover, this provides exceptional detail across both the shadows and spectacular highlights.
The NEON monitors offer accurate and consistent SDR/HDR monitoring and can also record ProRes or Avid DNxHR at up to DCI 4K/60p.
