ABOUT THE COMPANY

The two founders, Jeromy Young and Ian Overliese, have been manufacturing and selling video equipment for the Graphics, Events, Broadcast and Film industries for the past 11 and 15 years respectively.

Several industry giants have benefited from their expertise. Their strengths lie in growing companies from small to medium and medium to ...large. Keeping sales/marketing and technology in harmony while building a company is no easy task but Jeromy and Ian have achieved this with proven results.

Jeromy has been creating global sales and marketing channels for the past 6 years and before that honed his skills in product management. Jeromy has worked for Canopus Japan (now a part of GrassValley) and the Australian manufacturer Blackmagic Design before starting ATOMOS.

Ian has always been at the forefront of high-tech industries and has worked with 3D graphics processors, game consoles, smart phones and video equipment. A visionary engineer with extraordinary digital design skills, Ian has been instrumental in the film and television industry’s adoption of digital workflows for the past 9 years, during which he has worked for Blackmagic Design, and now ATOMOS.

Jeromy and Ian believe that by using the latest technology in ATOMOS products, they can improve the way video businesses operate by improving video production workflows.

The first product from ATOMOS, the Ninja, combines 3 products into one: a high quality monitor for use at or near the camera, an HD and SD portable capture device that records directly to Apple ProRes, and a playback system, for checking recorded footage.

Before the Ninja, it would take three separate devices to achieve this.

Everyone at ATOMOS is proud to have worked with Apple to gain approval of the ATOMOS implementation in hardware of Apple’s professional editing codec called Apple ProRes.

Featuring great engineering and an infinitely flexible touchscreen User Interface, the Ninja is a groundbreaking product that will be the first of many equally essential innovations from Atomos.

Our reach now extends worldwide as we are now partnering with distribution partners in all corners of the globe.

All products are designed in Melbourne, Australia and produced in China.

We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

"We can make it better" -(Hans Werner Briese)

Experts say about him, he would be the shining light of photography: we are talking about Hans Werner Briese, photographer, engineer and entrepreneur from Hamburg. From frustration over the "muddy" Studio light of his time the successful fashion photographer and graduated physics engineer started developing his own reflector. The trick: the light source is on a movable axis in the reflector. The focus reflector was born- a quantum leap for the photography. From now on, studio light was suddenly "crunchy" like sunlight, while individual adjustable.

"HW" had this unique patented and perfected it in his own company. His invention soon became an insider´s tip. Until today, Briese lighting is famous for individual and high quality lighting in the area of film and photo productions. Many well-known photographer like Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Anton Corbijn, Greg Gorman or Peter Lindbergh  work with Briese.

The "masters" latest coup: E-focus the remote controlled focusing unit which allows to control a total of eight reflectors from the camera position- for an ultimate precision and atmospheric lighting.

THE PERFECT LIGHT SINCE 1980

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

From its inception in 1980, Chimera Lighting has gained a reputation for innovation and excellence in the photography and film industries for its exceptional lighting products. But, like many innovative companies, Chimera evolved from humble beginnings.

In 1980, advertising and album cover photographer Gary Regester and noted climber, photographer and engineer/designer Tom Frost joined forces to create Chimera’s the first of a long line of light modifiers. Regester, who often photographed musicians on location, was looking for an alternative solution to creating the beautiful light he wanted for his portraits—one that created broader and softer illumination than umbrellas and a set-up that was more practical and portable than bulky lightboxes constructed from foam core and gaffer’s tape. Regester, inspired by the design of high altitude tents, sketched out some rough ideas for a collapsible modifier, which generated overwhelming interest from his photographer friends.

Frost provided the perfect balance of skills and experience, including his tenure as a designer for Chouinard Equipment (the predecessor to Patagonia, founded by Chouinard), to partner with Regester to bring the photographer’s idea to life. Set against the backdrop of Boulder, Colorado, known for its rugged beauty and outdoor adventures, Regester and Frost created the Illuminata Lightbank and Chimera was born, with Frost and his wife Dorene and Regester and his wife Joanie as the original founders.

The business initially started in the Frosts’ garage, with Tom Frost cutting the fabric for the lighbanks and then outsourcing the sewing locally. Skilled home sewers were—and are—plentiful in Boulder, thanks to the backpack and tent industry in the area. In the early days, the lightbanks were mainly sold at tradeshows but the business grew and the Frosts purchased a building that remains in the Frost family and continues to be home base for Chimera.

While initially designed for, and marketed to, still photographers, in the early 1980’s the late Dean Collins suggested that Chimera adapt its product lines for film and, later, video. Frost followed through by meeting with key players in the Hollywood film industry. This was a major step for the small company as cinematographers began to embrace Chimera lightbanks. Perhaps the tipping point was reached in 1990, when gaffer Mo Flam and DP Geoffrey Simpson used Chimera equipment when filming the breakout movie, “Fried Green Tomatoes.’” Since then, Chimera has played—and continues to maintain—a dominant role in the movie industry.  That’s no surprise given the products’ rugged build, ability to withstand the high heat output from cinema lights and to create the perfect illumination. When you’re working on a million dollar set, the last thing you want to face is an issue with equipment.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

For over 100 years, Cooke has been at the centre of the filmmaking business. We've been listening to the community of which we are a part. We lead by introducing new products such as /i Technology, and we remember our success is built on a simple idea - do what the filmmaker needs.

Our factory in Leicester, England has generations from the same family working side by side. That experience is un-beaten anywhere. We manufacture a full range of primes and zooms for 35mm, digital and Super 16mm photography, plus a range of large format stills lenses.

We know our customers, and they know us, as individuals. Our rental partners do their training next to the craftsman who built their lenses. There are no barriers. We meet our customers at our factory, at trade events, distributors and rental houses and of course on the set.

We're intolerant when it comes to tolerances. We research continuously to drive innovation. Our lenses are dependable and practical in use on the set; our optics superb. The lenses are straightforward to maintain – which is why so many rental facilities carry our products. Our manufacturing and testers keep going until we get each lens within our very tight specification. We get it right, whatever it takes.

At the heart of what makes Cooke special is the "Cooke Look". The Cooke Look® is about the science of creating beautiful images for the motion picture industry.

As a result, for over a century, cinematographers have chosen Cooke lenses for a smooth roundness and dimensionality to the picture and for the velvety skin tones that flatter.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

"The Dedolight and its unique system was conceived and designed by Director of Photography Dedo Weigert of Munich, Germany. The project was initially undertaken to fill his own exacting requirement for a powerful yet highly controllable light source which would occupy a minimum amount of space, draw a minimum amount of electricity and produce unprecedented light quality. The result of Dedo's efforts is a comprehensive lighting system offering unique advantages to lighting professionals in many disciplines:

  • Ultra compact size
  • Light output equal to much larger sources
  • Precision lighting with uncanny beam and stray light control
  • Extraordinarily even light distribution
  • Excellent reach
  • Precise color temperature control
  • Variety of projection attachments and accessories
  • Versatile mounting accessories
  • Variety of power options
  • Very low projected heat
  • Rugged construction.

So immediate and profound was the impact of this new system on cinematography, that in less than 3 years, the Dedolight went from an idea in the mind of one creative director of photography in Germany, to a Technical Achievement Award given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the U.S. In just a few years, the Dedolight had established itself as a significant creative contributor to a long list of motion pictures by top Hollywood professionals.

Today, the Dedolight continues to build upon its long list of credits in film, television and still photography and continues to build upon its extensive range of luminaires and system accessories. The unique control capabilities of Dedolight, along with its low projected heat and minimal current draw, also make the Dedolight the ideal choice to light the world's finest galleries, museums, and architectural sites."
