Magix Sony Creative Software -tuoteperhe

MAGIX is a global provider of software, online services, and digital content for the use of multimedia products and services for general and business communication. Established in 1993, MAGIX offers private and professional users a technologically sophisticated and user-friendly range of products for designing, editing, presenting, and archiving digital photos, videos, music, documents, and websites.

MAGIX Software GmbH is a leading creator of video, music, and photo-editing software and apps in Europe and is already well established in the US market. By purchasing Sony Creative Software products, including the full Vegas Pro, Movie Studio, Sound Forge Pro, and ACID Pro product lines, MAGIX is further cementing its position in the market and accelerating its international growth. The SCS Catalyst Browse and Catalyst Production Suite will continue to be developed by Sony for professional broadcast and production applications.

“These products from Sony Creative Software are the perfect addition to our portfolio. We have already strengthened our presence in the United States in order to propel development and sales. This autumn, we plan to release new versions of the video-editing programs Vegas Pro and Movie Studio, which are heavily oriented toward the customer requirements of today,” says MAGIX CEO Klaus Schmidt.

MAGIX will continue to support all current SCS customers who purchased products from Sony to ensure a seamless end user experience.

  2. Where can I now buy Sony Creative Software products?

What’s in the future for the products acquired by MAGIX?

Gary Rebholz, product owner of Vegas Pro and Movie Studio, together with a small group of talented developers and former Sony Creative Software employees, will continue to work on the products. The highly motivated developer team in their studio in Madison, Wisconsin will get additional support resources from our tech experts in Germany to optimize our development process.
In addition to bug fixes, performance and stability improvements, some new features such as native HEVC/H.265 support are planned for the autumn release of Vegas Pro. No classic subscription model is planned for Vegas.

“The developer team has many years’ experience working with and handling Vegas Pro. They understand the product and have an incomparable passion for software development with a view of the future.” – Gary Rebholz, Vegas Pro and Movie Studio product owner

No overlaps with MAGIX video products are planned. All existing products (including Movie Edit Pro and Video Pro X) will be continued to be released in parallel and optimized with new developments and updates.

Sony Creative Software products like Sound Forge, SpectraLayers and ACID Pro are a great enrichment for our audio sector. It is our desire to take user wishes into consideration through an intensive dialog and implement suggestions for improvement in order to present the best possible version of the software.

“With ACID, Sound Forge and SpectraLayers we hope to be able to ideally complement our existing products in ways that please consumers and professional artists alike.” – Dr. Steffen Klein, Chief Product Officer Music at MAGIX

Starting immediately, MAGIX is responsible for all acquired products. We thank you for your continued support and valuable feedback.
