(Burbank, California--April 18, 2013) Visual Data Media Services - a data centric facility supporting the creation, transformation, management, and distribution of content for all media platforms - has been awarded Preferred Vendor Status by Netflix. Visual Data is one of only 12 companies globally, and one of just three in the Los Angeles market, chosen as a Netflix Preferred Vendor.

Netflix, founded in 1997, is the world's leading Internet television network. The company has more than 33 million members in 40 countries enjoying more than one billion hours of TV shows and movies per month. Members can watch as much as they would like on nearly any Internet-connected screen, positioning Netflix as the leading driver of content digitization for the Streaming VOD market.

In creating their Preferred Vendor Program, Netflix developed specific criteria to ensure that only the highest level candidates would be certified. As part of the evaluation process, Visual Data was assessed in the following areas: service levels and performance metrics, breadth and quality of service, scalable technical infrastructure, workflow efficiencies, order management solution, delivery timeline, account management team, and corrective action management.

Chris Fetner, Director of Content Partners Operations for Netflix, stated, "We're looking for the top providers in the Digital Supply Chain to streamline workflows and help us accelerate the streaming VOD transformation. Netflix seeks to digitize content quickly, while still maintaining the highest quality possible. Matching content providers with the best service providers accomplishes that. We are very pleased to have Visual Data as part of our program."

John Trautman, CEO of Visual Data, commented, "Our highly skilled team is able to combine a deep knowledge of traditional tape-based workflows with the innovation and technical expertise required to service our clients in today's market. Visual Data is proud to be a part of the Netflix Preferred Vendor Program. This certification gives Netflix' Content Partners the confidence to know that their material is being handled by a proven market leader in the Digital Supply Chain."

Visual Data recently relocated into a brand new 30,000 square foot facility featuring 20 multi-functional 'smart suites', which can be easily configured to provide encoding, transcoding, audio services, avid or final cut editing, QC, or color correction as needed. The data centric operation was designed from the ground up to support the rapidly evolving market of content transformation and management, while continuing to support traditional post production workflows as the industry migrates to a file-based world.
