Technicolor plants India flag


Technicolor will open a DVD compression and authoring business in May in Bangalore, India.

Located within Thomson's new, 100,000-square-foot Paprikaas Animation and Game Design facility, the DVD compression and authoring business will focus on serving the domestic Indian market. It also will serve as an off-shore location to augment the division's capacities for worldwide DVD services.

"As part of our expanding role in the Indian market, we feel the time is opportune to grow our C&A offering in Bangalore, especially in light of the increased demand for Blu-ray authoring now that the market has settled on a single format," Technicolor Content Services president Ahmad Ouri said.

Sumit Malik, GM of C&A for Technicolor in India, will oversee the facility.

Technicolor is the services division of Thomson.
