Allied Vaughn and Cinram Team to expand Manufacturing-On-Demand products
Allied Vaughn and Cinram expanding services in North America and introduce Manufacturing-On-Demand products to European clients
September 28, 2012 – Allied Vaughn announced today that they have entered into an exclusive agreement with “Cinram Group Inc.”, one of the world’s largest providers of media delivery services. The Agreement will expand Allied Vaughn’s market leading Manufacturing-On-Demand (MOD) services in North America and introduce its products in Europe.
Allied Vaughn has pioneered and developed the MOD business by working closely with the motion picture and television industries and has recently expanded its capabilities to provide their services to the music industry. Producing low-volume (or one-off) DVD, Blu-ray and CD-R titles to accommodate the demands of the individual consumer is a natural evolution as the changing landscape of the packaged media industry continues to put pressure on optical media manufacturers. Both companies believe that on-demand solutions will be a key driver of waste elimination and will help maximize revenues from catalog content.
“Today’s selling environment has content owners seeking improvements in their packaged media supply chains” says Doug Olzenak from Allied Vaughn. “As more consumers transition to digitally delivered content, controlling costs and maximizing margins for packaged media becomes increasingly important. Manufacturing-On-Demand uniquely ties costs to revenue, dramatically increasing title life cycle management options for content owners and marketers alike.”
“Bringing MOD services to our global clients is consistent with our commitment to provide the most complete assortment of media supply chain products and services in the industry,” says John Crosier, SVP Digital Architecture and Delivery for Cinram. “We look forward to bringing this studio supported solution to the European market and are excited to be partnered with a company which has set the standard for world-class on-demand manufacturing
