CND and Starz



Las Vegas, NV, June 19,2009 -- Creative Network Design (CND), the media and entertainment industry's leading provider of integrated audio asset management solutions, today announced that Starz Entertainment is deploying CND's NetMix Pro system to enable audio engineers, video editors and producers to access and manage a server based library of audio files including music, sound fx, ADR and field recordings.

The NetMix Pro system will allow engineers and editors to search, audition and spot audio files directly into Digidesign's Pro Tools or drag and drop directly into Avid or Final Cut Pro bin. Powerful project management will allow producers and music supervisors to manage music tracks company wide and create usage reports thru a web-based interface.

In addition, CND's AudioSuite Plug-In MetaPlug enables Pro Tools engineers to upload new audio assets with metadata back to the library server.

"Starz Entertainment was looking for an audio asset management solution that -among other requirements- could tie into their Active Directory structure for security reasons", said Markus Schmidt, President of Creative Network Design, Inc. "We worked closely with Starz to integrate our user authentication with Starz's Active Directory environment."

“We were looking for a new audio asset management solution that Starz Entertainment could fully control and had no proprietary metadata restrictions.”, said Sean Richardson, Sr. Manager Operations/ Principal Audio Engineer at Starz. “CND was able to provide us with such a solution. In addition, all products of CND are available for Mac and PC which enables us to use the best audio and video editing tools available – platform independently.”
