SYDNEY, 21 March 2016 – Media asset management, broadcast duplication, QC, technical assessment, content management, disc duplication and replication services specialists Silver Trak have acquired high end Blu-ray, DVD authoring and production, DCP delivery and storage and archiving house Motionlink creating Australia’s largest authoring house.
Silver Trak co-owner Tim Creswell said, “Grant Salinger founded Motionlink in 1999 and it grew to become one of the finest authoring houses in the world, reliably producing hundreds of masters every month, including many of the biggest titles in the Australian market. By acquiring and integrating Motionlink into Silver Trak not only do we become the largest authoring house in Australia but our roster of clients and the services we offer them also grows so we can now provide traditional and cutting edge Silver Trak services such as Media Room media asset management and delivery to industry giants including Foxtel, Netflix, Google and Sony Playstation.
Motionlink’s diverse infrastructure helped it provide its clients with the latest digital deliverables from disc to Video On Demand and ingest any tape or file format and output to any client requirements.
Motionlink founder Grant Salinger said, “This is a great day for Motionlink, our clients and the entire Australian broadcast, TV and film industries as it brings two great companies together in a way that provides nothing but benefits to the market. Tim, Christian and the entire team at Silver Trak are eminently qualified to not only provide Motionlink clients with the services they know but the quality they expect.”
With Motionlink as part of Silver Trak the company’s reach now extends to some of Australia’s largest free to air broadcasters, streaming companies and content providers – including ABC TV, Netflix, Foxtel, Icon Film Distribution, Transmission Films and Entertainment One – Australia’s independent movie distributors and all major International film distributors.
Along with Silver Trak’s unique Media Room MAM solution and the two companies combined authoring services Silver Trak now offers 3D-capable Blu-ray systems, advanced compression and conversion, QC and mastering for Digital Cinema. The company also archives all DCPs and manages distribution to cinema through physical drives or digitally via satellite, with full tracking of clients’ content and library maintenance.
