Visual Data Announces Opening of New Premier Facility

Company to Launch 21st Century Facility in Burbank

(Burbank, CA) Visual Data Media Services – an industry leading provider of integrated end-to-end post production solutions and distribution for all media outlets – has announced the opening date of their new, state-of-the-art facility in Burbank, California. The new location will greatly expand the capacity of Visual Data’s current space and was designed from scratch to support 21st century workflows and accommodate the needs of a changing industry. Upon taking ownership of the Hollywood Way building earlier this year, the veteran post production company gutted the space to its outside walls, and an innovative, data centric facility arose in its place. The new Visual Data location will open its doors, with no interruption in service, on January 2, 2013.

John Trautman, President of Visual Data, commented, “We simply had to increase capacity to meet demand, and moving was a long term investment we were willing to make. When I first looked at the building, it was apparent that a lot of work would be needed to meet our goals, but I also knew that it presented an amazing opportunity. We had the chance to gut a strong structure in a great location, and then visualize exactly how we would build out a space and infrastructure to meet the demands of today’s industry and tomorrow’s as well. A place that would be thoroughly outstanding for our clients and our staff to work.”

The 30,000 square foot facility features 20 suites for editing, QC, color correction, and captioning, built around a highly secure Data Center, a large Digital Machine Room, and an Encoding Center. The cutting-edge Data Center was built to support the company’s proprietary Asset Management System, which will simplify and refine distribution and archival tasks for the company’s clients. The new space will also offer 2 mix stages, an ADR stage, and a Foley stage that will be unveiled early in 2013. The latest products from a number of leading vendors are being installed; including DVS-SAN, Aspera, Isilon, Avascent, Miranda, and DaVinci.

The increased capacity afforded by the new facility will support Visual Data’s wide ranging service offerings dedicated to the creation, management, repurposing and distribution of content; including Subtitling and Localization, Closed Captioning, DVD services, Syndication services, Asset Management, Encoding, Digital Cinema DCP, and Digital Delivery. “In today’s content driven world, everything is repurposed, repackaged and delivered a number of times. There are many steps involved to the work that we touch, and we’ve made it our business to make that process as easy as possible for our customers. That’s a core part of our business, and we wanted to bring a future-centric strategy to those services, including automation and data centric workflows,” noted Trautman.

The company’s investment, totaling more than eleven million dollars, comes at a time when some independent facilities are facing an economic slowdown. However Visual Data has carefully structured its business in a way that supports the evolving needs of its client base. Concluded Trautman, “This move is a fantastic opportunity for us to grow our footprint and accommodate the changing needs of our customers. We see this as an investment in a bright future.”
