German software and app provider MAGIX Software GmbH has acquired a majority of the Sony Creative Software (SCS) products.

MAGIX Software GmbH is a creator 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 (pictured), Movie Studio, Sound Forge Pro, and ACID Pro product lines, MAGIX says it 'further cements its position in the market' and will accelerate its international growth.

“These products from Sony Creative Software are the perfect addition to our portfolio," said MAGIX CEO Klaus Schmidt.

"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."

The SCS Catalyst Browse and Catalyst Production Suite will continue to be developed by Sony for professional broadcast and production applications. 

MAGIX says it will continue to support all current SCS customers who purchased products from Sony.
