For the last 4 years, Atomos have led the way developing products that enable a faster, higher quality and more affordable production when added to the world’s leading video cameras. From the Ninja to the Blade, and then the 4K HDMI Atomos Shogun and the miniature, but powerful Atomos Ninja Star, Atomos have been one of the coolest companies out there supporting independent filmmakers worldwide. One of the landmark usability features is start/stop recording trigger for the major camera brands, allowing the camera connected to start the recording on any Atomos recorder.
“We are humbled to have this level of development support from a company like Nikon,” said Jeromy Young CEO Atomos. “These new firmware updates simplify the user experience and make complimentary high tech products work seamlessly – something we all want.”
With Nikon Inc.’s announcement at NAB 2015 (www.nikonusa.com/NikonandAtomosNAB2015), users of D4S, D810 and D750 will have the start/stop trigger signal output over HDMI allowing synchronised operation with the entire Atomos range, from the pocket size Ninja Star through to the larger Ninja 2 and Ninja Blade and even the high frame rate 7″ Shogun.
Atomos products have start/stop trigger with the most popular HDMI cameras from Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and Sony as well as SDI based control from cameras from Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Arri, RED, JVC and Ikegami.
Videogram is an award winning platform for discovery, engagement and monetizing of online video. Set to be a huge deal for filmmakers, the online platform takes an existing Vimeo or YouTube video and creates a pictorial summary based on an advanced algorithm, leaving the viewer with a tiled summary of the entire clip by scene, with tile sizes reflecting importance.
The process is simple and automated with a dashboard to fine tune to the videographer’s preference. The format allows the user to pick and choose where to start watching and in turn share, like and comment on just that section of the video. Filmmakers could have their demo reel on Videogram and know from the analytics which parts in particular are creating engagement with potential clients, Sports broadcasters can use it to create single page summaries of the game, and Wedding videographers can use Videogram to succinctly convey the mood of the event they have captured.
Atomos have worked with Videogram to create a dedicated destination (atomos.videogram.com) whereby we will take videographer footage and allow them to create Videograms for free.
“I truly believe the industry has been screaming for this type of pictorial story telling, obsoleting the one tile per video we are used to and actually allowing users to navigate to parts of their pro video or commercial content visually and play that content with the click of a button. Atomos customers and any content creation professional can utilize this amazing service to showcase their work with viewers consuming in the most advanced way ever.” said Jeromy Young CEO of Atomos.
“With Atomos Videogram you can showcase your videos in the Videogram format at no cost to you.” said Sandeep Casi, founder of Videogram. “Videogram is a revolutionary user experience format that Showtime, Sony, Capital Records, Turner, Warner, CBS, ABC, Disney, Fox, HBO and others have field tested and are preparing to deploy. Atomos is the leading edge technology brand for producing high resolution pro quality content, now we bring you that leading edge for the consumer experience of your content.”
