|Masterdisk Corporation, one of the world’s leading audio, video, and multimedia mastering facilities, has established a strategic partnership with NewYorkDVD, a specialist DVD development, design and authoring firm.
The alliance with NewYorkDVD, best known for its innovative music and film titles, makes Masterdisk the largest New York music DVD facility and enables the company to significantly increase its DVD production, and offer its marquee roster of music clients a full-service DVD production, post-production, authoring, design, and replication firm. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
NewYorkDVD will be located within Masterdisk’s Manhattan facility and will operate a turn-key studio for expert-level authoring, menu design, and replication which will be managed by NewYorkDVD founder and lead producer Brian Brodeur.
Doug Levine, CEO of Masterdisk, said: “DVD has become a more integral part of our business plan, and offers tremendous value to our music clients, and the capabilities offered by NewYorkDVD greatly expand our opportunities with a broad range of clients.
“With our enhanced replication and distribution capabilities and our relationship with parent company Viastar’s vast content holdings, the timing of this acquisition complements our view that DVD represents a solid growth opportunity for Masterdisk.”
