The Irvine facility offers every worldwide videotape format from high hefinition and Digital Betacam to VHS. Additionally, Atlantic Pacific Media is capable of feeding tape or disc content through a worldwide digital network for instant delivery.

"The Video Frontier acquisition gives us a great start-up boost," says Karl Renwanz, president of Atlantic Pacific Media. "For 20 years, Video Frontier has developed a great customer base in Orange County and we are pleased to be working with them."

Video Frontier owner, Mike Monaghan, adds, "I've always thought that if I was to sell Video Frontier, I would want to be sure that the new owner would take care of our long-standing customers and staff with the same care that we did. I couldn't have found a better match than Atlantic Pacific Media."
