Autodesk and Blackmagic Design To Collaborate

Blackmagic Design and Autodesk, Inc. have announced that they intend to collaborate on future integrations between Blackmagic Design technology and Autodesk technology. This collaboration will build seamless workflows for customers in the professional video, television and commercial post-production industries.

The ongoing work between Blackmagic Design and Autodesk will include the testing and development of integrated workflows between Autodesk technology and Blackmagic Design's PCIe and Thunderbolt based desktop video capture and playback products, including the DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity product lines.

"In the post world, customers want the ability to mix and match the applications and hardware that work best for them. By developing tighter integration with Autodesk products and our desktop video products, we are creating a compelling workflow that both Autodesk and Blackmagic Design customers will benefit from," said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design.

"Throughout the product development and pre-release trial period of Smoke 2013, Autodesk collaborated with editors to help drive Smoke product development. We are pleased to be working with Blackmagic Design to create compelling workflows for our customers," said Chris Bradshaw, senior vice president, Autodesk Media & Entertainment.

Blackmagic Design's DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity lines include the world's highest performance capture and playback cards for Mac, Windows and Linux. Including both PCIe and Thunderbolt based technology, these products come in both internal and external models and are used by professionals globally in every aspect of film and video production.
