Amazon acquires Thinkbox

Amazon acquires Thinkbox Software to make it a part of Amazon Web Services
Amazon acquires Thinkbox
This company that provides tools for media and design content creation has been founded back in 2010 and now is on its way to join Amazon Web Services, not long after AWS launched the Chime videoconference call service.

Thinkbox Software is a small company that was founded back in 2010 and has a portfolio that includes a geometry caching system and image process automation, as well as a render management system, and more. Now, a new page in its history unfolds, as it will soon become a part of Amazon Web Services.

Thinkbox unveiled this acquisition on its blog, but the details are scarce. The entire post that was published yesterday by "Chris and the Thinkbox Team" reads the following: "We're excited to announce that we've been acquired by Amazon! We'll be joining the Amazon Web Services family, and we're looking forward to working together to deliver exciting customer offerings. At this point, it's still business as usual for us. We'll continue to provide you, our customers, with remarkable support whether you work on-prem, in the cloud or both."

A few weeks ago, Amazon Web Services introduced Chime, a new video conference call service. Acquiring a company like Thinkbox Software is a natural step forward for Amazon, which apparently plans to strengthen AWS and to offer a more robust stack of cloud services. 

As it usually happens with such deals, its financial terms were not unveiled to the public.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
