Tim Sarnoff To Head New Division at Technicolor


Company combines Creative Services and Digital Productions divisions

Technicolor’s Tim Sarnoff is shifting roles, becoming president of the company’s new Production Services division.

Technicolor also announced that Claude Gagnon is taking on the role of senior VP, content solutions and industry relations. Gagnon will lead Technicolor’s technology initiatives in support of the creative community and consumer electronics licensees in the areas of color science, high dynamic range and sound.

No layoffs or executive exits are expected with the moves.

The new Production Services group integrates the former Creative Services and Digital Productions divisions and will comprise all visual effects, post-production, animation and digital cinema distribution worldwide. Sarnoff was previously president of Digital Productions.

The new structure aligns post-production sound, animation and vfx under a single umbrella.

The merger resulted from the evolution of Technicolor’s digital technologies. “By aligning our services to offer a more holistic approach, we are creating efficiencies that will better serve the needs of our customers,” said Sarnoff.

Sarnoff will report to Technicolor CEO Frederic Rose.
