Blink Digital expands operations


Blink Digital is expanding into Burbank. Ascent Media Group's business for authoring, compression and encoding services for SD DVD and Blu-ray -- which currently maintains facilities in New York and Santa Monica -- will gain 10,000 square feet of space at parent company Ascent's 100,000 square foot Digital Media Data Center.

Said Blink Digital vp/GM Steven Chester: "We can now take a project from menu design through bonus feature production, compression, authoring, advanced programming, quality control and final delivery."

To lead the integration of its three locations, Blink Digital has brought on director of technical operations Drew Huntsman, who previously served as vp of DVD and new media at DVS Intelestream.
