Atomos completes development of world class 8K video sensor and is exploring commercialisation

Highlights:

  • Atomos announces that it has completed development of a world class 8K video sensor to allow video cameras to record in 8K ultra high resolution
  • 8K Ultra HD televisions are already in the market from Samsung, Sony and LG but 8K content has been lagging
  • The Company is exploring opportunities to commercialise its unique IP and is in discussion with several camera makers

Atomos Limited (‘ASX:AMS’, ‘Atomos’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to announce that it has completed development of a world class 8K video sensor which allows cameras to record in 8K ultra high definition.

Atomos acquired the intellectual property rights and technical team from broadcast equipment firm, Grass Valley five years ago to develop a leading-edge 8K video sensor.

8K video has four times the resolution of 4K video and allows video creators much greater flexibility when zooming in or cropping their shots during editing, as the resulting shot maintains sharp resolution.

There are several 8K televisions already in the market from Samsung, Sony and LG and 8K gaming consoles are expected soon. 8K content however has been lagging because, outside of big camera makers such as Sony, owning 8K sensor technology is extremely rare.

Development of Atomos’ 8K sensor is now complete. The Company is actively exploring opportunities for commercialisation and is in discussion with several camera makers who are showing great interest.
