Timecode Systems Merges With Atomos

Timecode Systems and Atomos have announced the two companies are merging. Together, Timecode Systems and Atomos are building tightly integrated multi-camera workflow solutions that unify all recording devices on set, allowing these devices to work together more cohesively. This allows production teams to experience, for the first time, the full impact of truly collaborative video and audio content creation across all types of program making.

With demand for video bigger than ever, content creators are using more separate devices to add angles and be creative. But they 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 film alongside professional cameras.

Timecode Systems, a developer of wireless sync technology, came onto the market in 2012, receiving an IABM award for innovation before even shipping its first product. The company launched a Wi-Fi-enabled digislate, created the only timecode sync solution for GoPro cameras and pioneered and patented a timecode-over-Bluetooth timing protocol.

The Timecode Systems wireless sync standard will not only feature across the next generations of the entire Atomos product range but will also be packaged as a free SDK for third-party manufacturers. As a result, existing Timecode Systems and Atomos customers can expect to unlock even greater value from their current systems from this collaboration.

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.
