“Five million UHDs in less than a year and a half is fantastic, a number we would never have expected when we launched production,” says Sonopress Managing Director Sven Deutschmann. “And demand on the part of our clients is now so huge that the decision to invest in expanding our production capacity was easily made,” he adds. Besides the two UHD-100 machines, the company’s capacity includes six UHD-66 production lines. The clients who are increasingly having UHDs produced at Sonopress include international companies such as the Hollywood Studios Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures International, as well as domestic vendors such as Universum Film, Concorde Home Entertainment and Highlight Constantin.
Since the beginning of 2016, Sonopress has been a key provider of the technology behind the Ultra HD Blu-ray format. The company has received several awards for technical development achievements, including the prestigious DEG Award for “Best Digital Product and Service Innovation” and the TOP 100 seal awarded by compamedia for exceptional innovative strength and extraordinary innovation achievements.
