Difuze acquires SPR, CNST and Technicolor Montreal-based Localization and Media Services Division

The newly established Difuze, created by industry veterans, emerges as the new leader in content production and distribution services

As audiovisual content is increasingly globalized, owners need to rely on partners that can deliver a broader range of services and technology. This is the thinking that led three seasoned executives to create Difuze, born out of the Montreal-based localization and media services division of Technicolor, boutique sound and versioning service provider SPR and subtitling specialist CNST.

This group makes Difuze the largest provider of French localization services in Canada, giving it an enviable head start in the content production and distribution services industry.

Based in Montreal, Difuze will offer clients a broader array of postproduction (picture and sound), versioning, subtitling, and multiplatform content delivery services. “It has become a universally acknowledged truth that the sum of a company’s offering is greater than its parts,” explains François Deschamps, President of Difuze. “That pretty well sums up our vision for the future. This vision has served us well to secure the patronage of several key industry investors who saw the potential for growth of Difuze in an increasingly globalized content market.”

“We are bringing complementary parts together that enable us to provide a comprehensive service offering to a broader base of clients through the right blend of people and technology,” says Mr. Deschamps. “Content is travelling further than ever, and in consolidating our resources and expertise, we can now enable our clients to further expand their reach to global audiences.”
