Respected Technologist Tapped for Product Manager Role
July 8, 2009 (Stockholm, Sweden) Digital Vision, the premier supplier of mastering and finishing systems for film and television post-production, has announced that Bruno Munger will step into the role of Product Manager – Grading & Finishing, effective immediately. He will be based in the North Hollywood office, where he will be responsible for Digital Vision’s software products including Film Master, Nucoda HD and Data Conform.
Munger will play a key role in defining the award winning software company’s strategy including new and emerging products focusing on development for advanced colour grading technologies, stereoscopic, end-to-end file based workflows and look & color management. In addition, he will expand and further develop vital third party and collaborative relationships within the industry and will play an integral part in the management of key customers and sales efforts.
A well-known and respected figure in Hollywood post production circles for over 15 years, Munger has worked with a number of other category-defining companies including MTI, Snell and Wilcox, and Discreet Logic (now Autodesk M&E). An expert in software development, he is well known for his work as Senior Product Designer on Autodesk Lustre. As part of the sales team and then as product designer there, he was charged with increasing the company’s market share for motion picture products. In that role, and as a member of its R&D team, he played a critical role in the growth of the product-line’s acceptance.
Commenting on the move to Digital Vision, Munger said, “For over twenty years, Digital Vision has developed important products and defined standards that have changed the industry. Today, Digital Vision is a breath of fresh air, part of a very exclusive club of applications for the 21st century that are flexible, powerful, open, and dynamic. I am happy to join this outstanding development team and continue working with the customers and companies that I’ve known for many years. I’m focused on seizing our great opportunity to help design the future ways in which customers manage their imagery and content.”

He possesses a rare combination of skills and traits; he has technological insight, an in-depth understanding of the industry, and an absolute dedication to surpassing customer’s expectations. We all look forward to working with Bruno to cement our leadership position and to grow our product line.”
