Cambridge Animation Systems, developer of Animo 2D software, has moved its company headquarters from England to The Digital Hub, in Dublin. Cormac Slevin, who has been with the company since 1998, will manage the new office.
The company has restructured its management team. Peter Florence, an original founder of Cambridge Animation Systems, will stay on as a shareholder alongside the new investment group; Digital Animation Media Ltd.
The success of the recent release of Animo 6.0 has allowed Cambridge Animation Systems to make this move where the company will continue to develop its Animo line of products. There are also plans in development for CAS to collaborate with some of the leading animation producers in Europe.
Our aim has always been to provide outstanding software and support for both Mac and PC, this will remain the focus for the future said Slevin. I feel certain the changes that CAS has implemented will allow us to expand and adapt to an ever changing animation business
