Avid Technology has acquired Munich-based NXN Software, an asset and production management systems provider.
The acquisition expands Avid's presence in digital asset management by enabling the company's film and video postproduction, broadcast, and 3D animation customers to leverage the workflow capabilities of NXN's alienbrain product line.
Gregor vom Scheidt, founder and CEO of NXN, will stay on as a managing director for Avid.
NXN's products, the NXN alienbrain VFX, NXN alienbrain Studio, and NXN alienbrain Engineer - extend Avid's current media asset management offerings with capabilities that include infrastructure, configuration, project, workflow management, and complete version control. Designed to work with any file format associated with 3D models, textures, video, audio, source code and office documents, NXN systems enable users to manage assets throughout all phases of a digital project. A wide range of 3D, graphics, source code, and administrative applications support the alienbrain product family directly in the application menu.
