Great news from Jon Fauer’s “Film & Digital Times”, it looks like the return of the cat!
"Aaton is not closed; the company will be taken over by new owners”.
Well the latest news is that Aaton and Transvideo are apparently working together on “lots of exciting products”. It’s not entirely clear if Transvideo are “new owners” but Jacques Delacoux, President of Transvideo, said, “Aaton and Transvideo will follow the same path — as sister companies.”
I’m guessing this means the new Cantar audio recorder and the D-Minima mini digital camera (a camera designed with documentary shooting in mind) will be coming soon but there may even be products that synthesise technologies from both Aaton and Transvideo in one product.
Aaton is a company with a long history of important innovation and it would be sad to lose such a creative and innovative company. I’m glad to see them back!
