Technicolor nabs Miles O’Fun

Pact boosts company's digital audio offerings

Film processing giant Technicolor said Friday that it has acquired Miles O’Fun, a Burbank-based audio post-production company.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Technicolor, a division of Thomson multimedia, boosts its digital audio offerings for its clients through the acquisition.

Miles O’Fun is primarily focused on providing sound editorial services to the episodic television market. During the coming broadcast season, the company is expected to contribute sound services to 400 hours of network television programming, including “Judging Amy,” “NYPD Blue” and “The Practice.”

The company recently received two Emmy noms for “Anne Frank: The Whole Story” and “Dune.”

Miles O’Fun becomes one of four companies that the Technicolor Worldwide Content Services Group has acquired over the past 18 months. Other companies include Hollywood-based Consolidated Film Industries and Complete Post, as well as Montreal, Canada-based Covitec.

“Our goal in joining Technicolor is to bring our clients the technology, resources and expertise of the most important brand in content services, along with the personal touch and high quality customer care that is essential to all of our businesses,” said David Weathers and David Hankins, co-presidents of Miles O’Fun. “Technicolor has some great ideas for shaping the future.”

Technicolor is the No. 1 processor of motion pictures and the leading manufacturer and distributor of DVDs, CDs and videocassettes.
