Deluxe Australia, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., and Omnilab Media announced today that Deluxe Australia will acquire Omnilab’s creative and media services businesses, including the well-known brands of Iloura, Digital Pictures, Cornerpost, Flagstaff, Boffswana and PAX Entertainment.
“We are very pleased that we have come to an agreement with Deluxe Australia that will see these great, iconic businesses continue to flourish, and we look forward to our continuing relationship with Deluxe,” said Christopher Mapp, managing director of Omnilab Media.
The acquisition will deliver an augmented suite of services for Deluxe’s Australian clients including expanded visual effects, design and broadcast postproduction services in Sydney and Melbourne, life-cycle library management, digital asset management, file-based mastering, archiving, DVD and Blu-ray authoring.
Deluxe has significantly increased its global digital services and content delivery over the last few years. The company’s pipeline now includes visual effects for features, broadcast programming and commercials, 2D and 3D postproduction services, including 2D-to-3D conversion from film or digital capture to digital intermediates, theatrical release (digital cinema, satellite and 35mm) and home entertainment services for every digital media platform.
“As technologies continue to transform how our movie, TV and advertising customers create and distribute content, Deluxe is well positioned for whatever the future may bring,” said Alaric McAusland, managing director of Deluxe Australia.
Omnilab Media will retain Ambience Entertainment, The Playroom, DubSat, Adsend, Substation and Oktobor Animation which will continue to operate separately from those businesses being acquired by Deluxe. Additionally, Omnilab Media will continue producing feature and broadcast content, and looks forward to continuing its working relationship with Deluxe Australia on these projects.
