TMS Corp specializes in the broadcast, industrial design, architectural design, event and exhibition, and game development industries in this region, within which Cinema 4D already has a strong established presence. Many major TV stations in Japan already rely on Cinema 4D in production, as do many design departments for notable industrial companies and this acquisition will therefore be welcome news for these companies.

“Japan has been and continues to be a huge growth area for Maxon,” says Maxon CEO, David McGavran. “The TMS team have been strong partners in the region. Their expertise will be invaluable in our efforts to grow the influence of our Redshift, Red Giant and Cinema 4D product lines in Japan and APAC.”

Benefits for Users

Through this acquisition Maxon aims to strengthen their support system and outreach for the large number of product users in the country, who will benefit from Maxon’s ongoing provision of regular free seminars. Moreover, the inclusion of Red Giant and Redshift products, as well as the full Maxon One bundle, will certainly provide many more exciting tools for creatives to explore.

About Manfred Flick, Regional Director of Maxon KK

In 1994, Manfred founded TMS Corp. in Tokyo after having worked eight years in Japan as a broadcast engineer for a German company. A visit to the Siggraph trade show in 1998 in Los Angeles led him to the Maxon booth where he witnessed the popularity and potential of Cinema 4D for the first time. This kicked off an invaluable more than two-decade long relationship which has opened the door to Japan for Maxon. For TMS it was an exciting challenge to introduce a new product into a competitive market. Through tenacity, patience and enthusiasm Manfred and his experienced team, Cinema 4D has quickly become an essential tool in all design industries, and Maxon’s Red Giant and Redshift product lines are quickly gaining that same popularity.
