Technicolor

Technicolor

Profile:
Technicolor is a multi-faceted manufacturing, press releases and communications company, which has operated optical disc manufacturing in various countries during its existence under a series of different parent companies.

Technicolor Optical Media Services opened a CD manufacturing plant in Camarillo, CA, USA in April 1994, at which time Technicolor Video Services was already involved in VHS manufacturing.

In 1998, Nimbus CD International Inc., which ran manufacturing plants in Wales, Luxembourg, and the USA, was taken over by Carlton Communications PLC, then-parent company of Technicolor. Please note that Nimbus branding continued to be used in the matrix of discs manufactured at these plants until around 2001, at which time the Technicolor name replaced Nimbus. For discs manufactured between 1998 and 2001, Technicolor should NOT be credited when the Nimbus name or logo is present.

In 2002, Technicolor purchased Matsushita Universal Media Services, including an optical disc manufacturing plant located in Pinckneyville, IL, USA, which was renamed Technicolor Universal Media Services.

It was announced in late 2002 that Technicolor's former Nimbus CD/DVD manufacturing plants in Charlottesville and Ruckersville, VA, USA would be closed by June 2003.

In 2007, Technicolor announced the closure of the former Nimbus plants in Wales and Luxembourg, and the Pinckneyville plant. CD and DVD replication for Europe was to continue at a facility in Piaseczno, Poland. The plant in Camarillo, CA was still in operation at this time, as was a plant in Memphis.

In November 2015, Technicolor announced that they had purchased the optical disc manufacturing and distribution assets of Cinram Group, Inc. (Cinram). This included a manufacturing plant in Olyphant, PA (Cinram, Olyphant, PA), which Technicolor closed on May 1, 2018, and a plant in Huntsville, AL.

As of January 2018, Technicolor continued to run manufacturing facilities in Huntsville, AL, USA; Guadalajara, Mexico; Piaseczno, Poland; and Melbourne, Australia (Technicolor, Australia).

The following letter/number strings can be found in matrix of discs manufactured by Technicolor, and may be entered in LCCN:

• Cxxxx, Dxxxx, Exxxx
• LUxxxxxx

Both of these schemes were inherited from Nimbus. The LUxxxxxx numbering scheme fell out of use in 2006, shortly before the plants in Wales and Luxembourg were closed.

After rebranding, Technicolor repressed many CDs originally manufactured by Nimbus, using the original matrix number in the new glass master. For example:

Martin Orford - Classical Music And Popular Songs
Matrix / Runout: D8225 GEPCD 1026 . 1:1 [Nimbus logo]

Martin Orford - Classical Music And Popular Songs
Matrix / Runout: D8225 GEPCD 1026 02 Technicolor

In these cases, the CD showing Nimbus is the earlier pressing, while the one showing Technicolor is a repress manufactured sometime after the rebranding. The matrix number may be assigned to both Nimbus and Technicolor on each respective release page.

• 720xxxx - used in 2007
• CAPxxxxx - used from 2008-present
• DVxxxxxx / DVPxxxxx / DTPxxxxx - used for DVDs (if the string appears twice followed by L1 and L0 layer indicators then both full strings including L1 and L0 should be entered)
• BVPxxxxx - used for Blu-rays

When credited as an artist, please use Technicolor (2).
