Technicolor Video, a subsidiary of Carlton Communications, is the world’s largest production and distributor of videocassettes.

Videovisa’s reproduction unit, Central de Video, is the biggest in the Spanish-speaking world, with the capacity to produce 25 million units per year and a Mexican market share of 75%, the company claims.

Planning market invasion

Central de Video and Technicolor plan an aggressive expansion strategy, the deal enabling them to penetrate the Central and South American markets.
