Technicolor opens Blu-ray full service in Europe

Thomson's Technicolor Services Division announces the establishment of a comprehensive Blu-ray Disc mastering suite and four new Blu-ray Disc BD-50 and BD-25 lines at its facility in Piaseczno/Warsaw, Poland.

Technicolor was one of the first companies to start manufacturing Blu-ray Discs in 2006 from its Camarillo, California, facility and has been working with numerous studios and independent right holders since the launch of the format. These are the first Blu-ray Disc lines for Technicolor in Europe and positions Technicolor Poland as the second largest Blu-Ray Disc manufacturer in Europe.

“Our US colleagues have developed a strong expertise in the manufacturing of Blu-ray Discs since 2006, and we have benefited greatly from their expertise in establishing European-based Blu-ray capability, giving us the opportunity to better serve our customers here in Europe," says Robert Sweet, senior vice president, Technicolor Home Entertainment Services Europe. "This significant investment in Blu-ray mastering and replication capacity will allow us to deliver this new format with maximum flexibility and efficiency for our key customers in Europe.”
