Larry Jordan: Welcome back. This is Larry Jordan. It’s the start of the second day of the annual NAB Show for 2019 actually if I can get the year correct. We’ve got an amazing lineup of guests today, but I can’t stress to you how exciting it is to just look at all the different booths. Our stage looks out over most of south lower, and we see hundreds of booths and thousands of people all learning about the latest technology, which is what NAB is famous for.

And thinking of technology brings me to my first guest. Jeromy Young is the CEO of Atomos. And has gigantic signs plastered all over talking about some of his latest products, Jeromy, it’s always fun to chat with you. Welcome.

Jeromy Young: Good to be here Larry. Thanks for having me.

Larry Jordan: For people that have heard of Atomos but don’t know what you make, describe the company.

Jeromy Young: Yeah, so we’re a company that sits between imaging, so sensor capture and computer world. As you know, I come from the post-production world making editing and capture boards. And we decided a few years ago to about eight years ago when we started, to take the capture card concept and stick it on top of the camera and go directly to what would be mezzanine intermediate formats for editing which used to be things like only ProRes on the computer, right. So we took that and stuck it on top of the camera.

Since then, in eight years we’ve sold 500,000 units of recording to SSDs. From the sensor of cameras, we now support around 350 cameras in general. And it’s an amazing part of the world to connect imaging to computers.
