Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
AndTransfer (http://www.andtransfer.com), a nationally-renowned telecine boutique founded in Dallas in the 1970s and serving clients across the globe, has new owners, Brandon Tyler and Dylan Rogers.
Mr. Tyler, who is president and co-owner, and Mr. Rogers, co-owner, are both industry veterans. They acquired all the assets of the company from founder Neil Feldman, who is retiring. The transaction closed in August. Sales price was not disclosed.
Under the new leadership, AndTransfer will focus on transformational programming across all film and video platforms. The owners promise expansive technical capabilities, absolute attention to client service, and rededication to the highest standards, according to Mr. Tyler.
AndTransfer professionals on the team with Mr. Tyler and Mr. Rogers include Steve Franko, Kelly Riemenschneider, Terry Hall, and Russell Franklin, all of whom have been with the company for many years and have extensive experience in the industry.
“We want to expand and perfect what we do best,” said Mr. Tyler. “In addition to our traditional capabilities, we will soon introduce some of the newest approaches on the horizon in commercial and long form color correction, archiving, restoration, transcoding and data distribution.”
“We’re products of the digital revolution,” said Mr. Rogers. “We’ve had experience behind the camera, in technical suites, and at executive levels here and in California working for and with numerous recognized successful enterprises.”
Literally born into the cable TV industry---with a father and grandfather who are both cable TV operators--- Brandon Tyler spent early years experiencing the art and technical elements of video, film, TV, and cable with television production companies, as a graphics specialist for Cowboys Weekly for Fox Sports Net, and, under his own brand, as the producer and filmmaker for TCU football highlights and DVD projects. The 2011 fall season begins his second decade shooting the highlights and traveling with the team. He’s also worked as an independent videographer for a number of large corporations including ESPN. He has nearly six years with FUNimation Entertainment running their anime channel before heading up the FUNimation (http://www.funimation.com/) digital video group. That group provides internet content to such vendors as iTunes, Netflix, Xbox, PlayStation and YouTube. Under his management at FUNimation, the division raised production to 17,000 episodes annually for internet content distribution. Mr. Tyler believes his capabilities as a video engineer and ease with any and all video formats complement and support the abilities and in-demand excellence of the seasoned AndTransfer veteran team.
Brandon met Dylan while at FUNimation. Now his co-owner and a fellow native Texan, Dylan Rogers had stints at Allied Film & Video (later Allied Digital Technologies), where he advanced to lead duplication operator and then assistant editor doing off-line edits and audio syncing for dailies; and Vision Wise, where he was an MPEG-2 encoder and lead DVD author, guiding an exceptionally talented team that solidified Dallas as a central location on par with the west and east coast dominated DVD authors. He became lead DVD author at FUNimation Entertainment and expanded his contributions to create the early workflows for digital distribution to iTunes and Xbox Live. Before joining AndTransfer, he was with Burbank’s Ascent Media (http://www.ascentmedia.com/Default.aspx) as a Digital Media Engineer and with Technicolor (http://www.technicolor.com/), where he helped create much of the automation used in creation of client deliverables and developed processes for day to day operations. He also worked closely with the development team in positioning new global strategic product offerings. At AndTransfer, he’ll lead further technical and systems development.
Original AndTransfer owner Mr. Feldman opened his doors to serve numerous advertising agencies located in and around Dallas that wanted local state-of-the-art telecine and color correction technology. The holding company, Video Post & Transfer (VPT) (http://www.videopost.com/), was the first to introduce film-to-tape transfer to the Southwestern United States. It quickly became the sole destination of numerous national, regional and local clients and gained international notoriety for its technological innovations in film-to-tape transfer, among other in-demand capabilities. VPT’s telecine division was spun off as AndTransfer.
Today, AndTransfer is one of the finest DI, telecine and mastering service companies in the world.
