Atomos recently released an update to its AtomRemote App for the NEON 17 and 24-inch HDR monitor/recorders, along with a desktop control extension for macOS users. Let’s take a closer look at it!
The Atomos Neon cinema monitors were announced back in May 2019, and after some, the NEON 17″ and 24″ started shipping in November 2020. If you never heard of/worked with these monitor/recorders, the Atomos Neon series are high-end precision monitoring solutions that can work either in the field or in the studio for accurate color grading.
When the NEON monitors started shipping, Atomos launched the AtomRemote iOS app along with it. This app allows you to control all the functions of your Atomos Neon HDR monitor/recorder wirelessly over Bluetooth.
Atomos AtomRemote macOS Desktop Control Extension
In the latest AtomRemote version 1.0.2 app for iOS devices, Atomos improved the UI layout management and corrected UI in regard to “legal” inputs. These are pretty minor updates, but it’s always nice to have a fun and intuitive UI to use.
The biggest update is the launch of the AtomRemote app desktop control extension for macOS. At the moment, this extension is compatible with macOS Catalina 10.15 and macOS Big Sur.
The extension allows you to wirelessly configure various settings, including:
- Change your input/output settings.
- Monitor your color pipeline.
- Quick access to the list of recorded clips so you can playback clips easily.
- You can switch on/off all your exposure/focus and image analysis tools.
This desktop app will be handy for DITs on set to quickly adjust the client monitor, for example.
Price and Availability
The AtomRemote app is available now for free on the App Store.
