How do I get Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Studio Version?

DaVinci Resolve is the only software in the world that can edit, fix colors, add visual effects, make motion graphics, and add sound after the fact. It has a beautiful, modern interface that is easy for new users to learn and quick to use, but powerful for experts. You can work faster and better with DaVinci Resolve since you don't have to learn new apps or switch between software to do different jobs. That means you can work with images that are as good as they were when they were taken from the camera the whole time. It's like having your own studio for post-production all in one app! The best part is that when you learn DaVinci Resolve, you learn how to use the same tools that Hollywood pros do!

Vizrt’s ambition is to support anyone creating content with the best storytelling solutions and a scalable portfolio of products, whether an individual, an educational institution, a corporate enterprise, a world-class broadcaster, or anything in between.

What about NDI and Vizrt Group?
Announced earlier this year, NDI will remain a standalone brand, but supported by Vizrt as a key partner. Vizrt Group will now operate under the Vizrt name. Vizrt is still owned privately by Nordic Capital, and its board and leadership team remain unchanged.
