A list ups and downs

Autodesk: cuts 750 jobs

We spoke to Autodesk overnight. They confirmed that 10% of jobs across the board had gone. Some friends from M&E division have gone, from offices around the world not just in Montreal. All of the final people have not even been decided, in some cases areas they have been told there will be cuts but the actual people have not been decided yet.

We did get from Corporate that it this is intended to not affect the product roadmap. “Like the rest of the business, the M&E division was impacted by the 10% workforce reduction. Product roadmaps haven’t changed as a result of this.” 

AVID: Returns to NAB.

We also spoke to AVID overnight and Paul Lypaczewski, VP and GM , Video and Amy Peterson, Head of PR confirmed that they will have a booth on the floor of NAB.. We pushed for more and if this signaled a major introduction and they replied “I can confirm that we will have a booth on the show floor, but that is about all I can share at this point. ” – they did however promise to let us know closer to the date.
