Visual Data Media Services Acquires Soho Digital Cinema

News Image
Visual Data Media Services has acquired Soho Digital Cinema (SDC).

The acquisition enables Visual Data to add Digital Cinema Mastering and Cinema Distribution to its armoury of services. Just like its existing broadcast, streaming and VOD offerings, Visual Data will now take care of every step in the digital cinema content supply chain, throughout the content lifecycle.

By combining technologies and resources, Visual Data is now a one-stop-shop for all methods of digital content distribution. Customers of both companies can now take advantage of SDC’s D-Cinema services including Screenfast, the award-winning digital cinema cloud distribution platform, as well as having access to Visual Data’s wide range of media distribution services. Customers can also benefit from the Visual Data team’s expertise in distributing content to platforms such as Netflix, Amazon and iTunes.

While the company will operate under the Visual Data brand, the Screenfast platform will retain its name and will continue to be developed. Symon Roue will continue to head up Visual Data in the UK, while SD'’s David Margolis has been appointed Director of Digital Cinema. The SDC team will relocate to Visual Data’s UK facilities in west London.

"Visual Data and Soho Digital Cinema had worked together on several projects and we saw clear synergies between our two companies, with our complementary product and service offerings and adjacent or converging markets," said Symon Roue, Managing Director, Visual Data Media Services. “The acquisition is a positive move for all of our customers, enabling them to master and distribute all deliverables from one place, significantly streamlining the distribution process while saving time and money.|
