LONDONâ€”7 April 2011â€”
, the leading developer of digital media recorders and media management systems for film and television production, has opened a new office in Hollywood to serve as its base in the United States.
The new office will serve as Codex’s operations, training and marketing hub in North America. It is located in the Cahuenga Live/Work Lofts complex, which is becoming a center for media production. It is located at 3450 Cahuenga Boulevard West, Los Angeles, CA 90068.
â€œWe’ve seen an enormous increase in interest in file-based workflows and a commensurate increase in the demand for our products,â€? said Codex Digital Vice President for Market Development Sarah Priestnall. â€œThis new facility will enable us to expand our training programs and to best support our customers as our industry continues to go through this enormous transition.â€?
Codex has also opened a new design and manufacturing facility in Leamington Spa, England, enabling them to significantly ramp up production of all products.
