Autodesk has acquired Moxion, the New Zealand company whose cloud-based platform for digital dailies has been used on such productions as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Matrix Resurrections. The acquisition of Moxion’s talent and technology will expand Autodesk’s cloud platform for media and entertainment into production, helping to integrate processes across the content-production chain.
Founded in 2015, Moxion has won accolades that include an Engineering Excellence Award from the Hollywood Professional Association, a Workflow Systems Medal from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers and a Lumiere Award from the Advanced Imaging Society.
Moxion enables professionals to collaborate and review camera footage on set and remotely with the immediacy required to make creative decisions during principal photography in 4K high-dynamic-range quality and with studio-grade security. Data protection is paramount; Moxion ensures security with features such as MPAA compliance, multi-factor authentication, visible and invisible forensic watermarking, and full digital-rights management.
“As the content demand continues to boom, this acquisition helps us facilitate broader collaboration and communication and drive greater efficiencies in the production process,” says Diana Colella, Autodesk’s senior vice president of media and entertainment.
“We look forward to combining the efforts of our talented team with the deep resources and wealth of engineering talent at Autodesk,” says Moxion CEO Hugh Calveley. “Bringing together industry-leading on-set and postproduction workflows will help unite data and increase collaboration across the production process to improve project efficiency.”
