HOLLYWOOD, CINE GEAR 2016, Booth #S315A – G-Technology®, a storage brand by Western Digital Corporation (NASDAQ: WDC), today announced a partnership with Atomos, designer and manufacturer of smart 4K and HD video production tools, to develop solutions that help creative professionals save time in the content creation process.
The new prototypes will be on display at Cine Gear, June 3-4, in Hollywood at the G-Technology booth #S315A and the Atomos booth #S137.
G-Technology manufactures storage solutions used in studio and on-location by professionals worldwide and Atomos has gained a reputation for their monitor/reorders. Both companies have a high-octane following with studios and independent filmmakers, providing, not just equipment, but educational and informational news as evidenced in videos such as this one from February of this year featuring G-Team Ambassadors, Clinton Harn, Shane Burrell and Simon Walker. This new partnership brings two companies with similar cultures together to serve a common demographic.
“G-Technology is always looking for new ways to support the content creation workflow and we are excited to be working with Atomos,” said Mike Williams, vice president of G-Technology. “From our Evolution Series to our 12-bay G-RACK™ NAS solution, our newest partnership with Atomos will give creative professionals maximum flexibility, performance and style for their ever-evolving workflows.”

This announcement has been in the works for some time. “At Atomos, we are committed to creating easy-to-use products that merge the complicated steps in the content creation process,” said Jeromy Young, CEO and Co-founder, Atomos. “By partnering with G-Technology, the most well-known and respected storage brand in the media and entertainment industry, we’re extending our capabilities even further, helping our users quickly transfer and store their most precious work.”
