Deluxe Buys HD Assets from Global Entertainment Partners

Acquisition of KK Digital assets bolsters Deluxe’s position as a full service technical partner for content owners
Deluxe Digital Media, the US post production and digital solutions division of Deluxe, today announces the acquisition of all of the assets of KK Digital, the High Definition telecine division of Global Entertainment Partners (GEP). The deal incorporates a full buyout of the machines and staff, including experienced professionals Kari Grubin and Kevin O’Connor, who have now taken up roles as VP Post Production Services and Lead Colorist respectively, with Deluxe.

Moving forward the newly combined team will be able to offer complete HD services including 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 Dailies, Finishing, Mastering and HD Digital Intermediates along with more services for product that originates on film, digitally or on HD such as films shot on Panavision's Genesis camera.

Gray Ainsworth, Senior Vice President of Operations at Deluxe Digital Media said, “This is a strategic move for Deluxe that allows us to offer our clients greater packaging options. We are increasing our ability to connect our world-class laboratory services and our late stream services so that we can offer the complete solution for rights holders throughout the lifecycle of a title.”

Kevin O’Connor, Lead Colorist for the new division, is an outstanding colorist who has worked on such studio features as Spiderman, Dances With Wolves and Silence Of The Lambs. Kari Grubin is a 20 year industry veteran holding various posts, including for Paramount Pictures, and film editing before building KK Digital.

“This is an exciting time for our HD telecine team as we look to grow and offer the very best services to clients” say O’Connor and Grubin. “Now that we are at Deluxe, we have the best equipment and people in the business and we look forward to working on future projects with the Deluxe team.”

O’Connor and Grubin, and the rest of their team, will continue to be based in Sherman Oaks.
