Australia's facilities, post-production and production group Omnilab Media has agreed to sell its creative and media services division to Deluxe Australia, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc.
Omnilab is selling subsidiary companies including Iloura, Digital Pictures, Cornerpost, Flagstaff, Boffswana and PAX Entertainment.
It is hanging on to Ambience Entertainment, The Playroom, DubSat, Adsend, The Substation and Oktobor Animation and will continue as a film and TV producer. Last year it produced Killer Elite (2011) (pictured).
Deluxe says that the buys will enhance its capabilities in visual effects, design and broadcast post production services in Sydney and Melbourne, life-cycle library management, digital asset management, file-based mastering, archiving, DVD and Blu-ray authoring.
"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, MD of Deluxe Australia.
