- Atomos - 4K the Right Way - Jeromy Young 
The ProVideo world is understandably excited by the prospect of 4K becoming mainstream. For all the creativity benefits it will bring to filmmakers, however there are differences between the HD and 4K workflow. Atomos CEO Jeromy Young will present his learnings on 4K from the development of the Shogun 4K monitor-recorder & demonstrate the cost effective, post production friendly way to handle 4K. I'ts 4K the right way.

Jeromy YoungAbout Jeromy Young
Jeromy Young’s adventurous career began after finishing a cadetship at BHP and Wollongong University, Australia, in Materials Engineering in the late nineties. After a short teaching stint in Japan he made a permanent move to Osaka and made a very successful move to Canopus, a leading manufacturer of video cards at the time.

Through a series of promotions Jeromy advanced to the role of Global Sales Manager spending time learning Global management in Europe, the US and Asia before Canopus’ acquisition by Grass Valley prompted a return to home to Australia

Joining up with hardware engineer Ian Overliese in 2010 Atomos’ first product, the Ninja, was launched at IBC 2010 and started shipping before NAB 2011. Featuring great engineering and an infinitely flexible touchscreen User Interface, the Ninja was a ground breaking product that proved to be the first of many equally essential innovations from Atomos.

Jeromy and Ian form a very formidable team and believe that by using the latest technology in Atomos products, they can improve the way video businesses operate by improving and simplifying video production workflows, reducing the cost of production through the combining of products and the use of commodity storage.

Patrick DrakeAbout Patrick Drake
From the world’s most powerful investment bank to the world’s most respected restaurant Patrick Drake’s journey has been anything but conventional.

London’s corporate conveyor belt quickly lost its allure and so began a secret double life. Lunchtimes hiding out with the chefs in his firm’s fine dining restaurant, evenings in the kitchen of The Cuckoo Club in Mayfair and weekends with renowned Spanish chef Jose Pizarro.

After a stint at The Fat Duck in Bray he couldn’t pretend to love his day job any longer and jettisoned the rat race to pursue his love of food full time.

Nowadays he is the co-founder and head chef of nationwide cook-from-scratch delivery service Hello Fresh which will deliver over 2 million meals around the UK this year.

He is also the presenter of "When Patrick Met Kylie: A Love, of Food, Story" (airing in 70 countries), food writer for Women's Health and the Huffington Post and teaches thousands of people a day to cook using his Youtube channel 'The 60 Second Chef.'
