Atomos Acquires Timecode Systems 

Timecode Systems has been acquired by Atomos, allowing the companies to build tightly integrated multicamera workflow solutions that unify all recording devices on a set.

Timecode Systems, a developer of wireless sync technology, said the Atomos acquisition will allow production teams to experience the full impact of collaborative video and audio content creation across all types of programming. Atomos makes video camera monitors and recorders.

Content creators are using more separate devices for production than ever before. But these devices are limited by the time it takes to edit, align and finish videos that combine multiple sources of video and audio, especially when using prosumer and consumer devices to shoot alongside professional cameras.

Right now, this disconnect between recording devices is holding back multicamera content creation. To shoot collaboratively, everything needs to work in perfect, frame-accurate sync through a robust wireless connection. The Timecode Systems RF protocol is this bulletproof link,” said Jeromy Young, CEO and founder of Atomos. "Working together, we now have the glue to create a truly connected multicamera solution.”

Timecode Systems launched the first Wi-Fi-enabled digislate, created the only timecode sync solution for GoPro cameras and pioneered and patented a timecode-over-Bluetooth timing protocol.

The AtomX Sync module for the Ninja V and the Neon series of monitors will be the first Atomos products to feature integrated Timecode Systems technology.
