Allied Vaughn, Cinram Team up on MOD Products28 Sep, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Replicator Cinram will begin offering disc manufacturing on demand (MOD) products to its customers, thanks to a new agreement with MOD company Allied Vaughn.
The agreement will introduce Allied Vaughn MOD products for the first time in Europe as well. Cinram, which was recently acquired by private investment firm Najafi Cos. for approximately $82 million, will aim to cut down on returns and help maximize revenues from clients’ catalogs.
“Today’s selling environment has content owners seeking improvements in their packaged media supply chains,” said Allied Vaughn president Doug Olzenak. “As more consumers transition to digitally delivered content, controlling costs and maximizing margins for packaged media become increasingly important. Manufacturing on demand uniquely ties costs to revenue, dramatically increasing title life cycle management options for content owners and marketers alike."
John Crosier, SVP of digital architecture and delivery for Cinram, added: “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. 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.”
