Adams Media Research and Screen Digest Form Trans-Atlantic Partnership 
To Provide World’s Most Comprehensive Video Industry Information Service

Carmel, California (September 24, 2003):  The two leading research and consulting firms specializing in home video research—US-based Adams Media Research and UK-based Screen Digest—have agreed to pool their resources to provide the world’s most comprehensive video and DVD online information service. 

Earlier this year, London-based Screen Digest launched the online service, “Video and DVD Intelligence,”  covering Europe and the Asia Pacific region. Now Adams Media Research, based in Carmel, California, will contribute its comprehensive market information and projection models of the DVD and VHS markets in the USA to “Video and DVD Intelligence.” By combining their resources the two companies will be able to offer their clients a video and DVD information service which will be by far the most complete and authoritative anywhere in the world.

The “Video and DVD Intelligence” service now provides, for over forty countries representing over 95% of the worldwide home video marketplace, a wide range of continuously updated market information, data and forecasts covering all aspects of the VHS and DVD hardware and software markets, with further information on the retail and rental distribution environment, regulatory issues, etc.

“We are delighted to be working with Adams Media Research,” said Screen Digest’s Ben Keen, “which has an outstanding reputation and has set the highest standards of research for the USA.”

“By pooling the worldwide resources of the two leading video and DVD research organizations, commented Tom Adams of Adams Media Research, “we can offer the industry the most accurate market data available in an easy-to-access, Web-based service. The days of hunting around for data on the worldwide video marketplace are over for video industry executives and the financial community.”
