Autodesk, Inc. has announced Autodesk Media and Entertainment division; formerly known as Discreet, the division will remain dedicated to providing products and services for the film, video, gaming, and related media and entertainment markets.
While the dedicated sales, support and product development teams remain unchanged, the brand change signifies the incremental resources Autodesk Media and Entertainment will be utilizing. This ensures that the creative toolset from Autodesk Media and Entertainment will continue to empower artists to solve complex production challenges. Additionally, Autodesk Consulting is extending its organization by adding a dedicated Media and Entertainment practice.
Autodesk Media and Entertainment will demonstrate the benefits of this integration at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention
in Las Vegas, April 18-21, 2005.
Autodesk Media and Entertainment Division will be headquartered in Montreal, Canada, where Discreet has been based since Autodesk acquired Discreet Logic in 1999. Autodesk will be maintaining its presence in Montreal, taking advantage of the base of experienced professionals there.
