Former Post Group President
to lead growth effort for post facility specializing in file-based mastering
and distribution.

BURBANK—Veteran post-production industry
executive Stephen Buchsbaum has been appointed President and Chief Operating
Officer of Burbank headquartered 2GDigital. Buchsbaum, whose background includes service as President of The
Post Group, will oversee operations, direct sales and marketing, and lead
strategic planning for the company, a specialist in digital mastering, content
management and digital distribution for television and film. His immediate
focus will be on broadening the company’s sales outreach and accelerating its
on-going growth plans, which include both an expansion of its Burbank facility
and the establishment of an outpost on the East Coast.

“Stephen is a smart and capable executive with a proven
record for helping successful companies become even better,” said John B.
Wilson, President of Hyannis Port Capital, 2G Digital’s parent company. “The
entertainment industry’s use of file-based delivery is expanding rapidly and 2G
Digital is well positioned to respond to the need for quality, expertise and
service. Stephen brings the leadership skills, vision and business expertise to
take this company to the next level.”
Buchsbaum said that he was impressed with the technical
infrastructure at 2G Digital, which is built around a 10-gigabit backbone, as
well as the strong relationships it has forged with studios and independent production
companies, including Fox, Warner Bros., Disney, Fremantle Media, Lionsgate and Sony.
Under his guidance, the company will focus on quality control, security,
connectivity and customer service.

“We want to be the company you go to when you need your
files moved quickly and reliably,” he said. “As an independent, we offer many
advantages. We’re big enough to handle any workflow and spec requirements, and yet
we are small enough to maintain one-on-one relationships with our clients.”
Buchsbaum added that he would seek strategic partnership
relationships with other production and post-production companies offering
complimentary services. He will also work to deepen 2G Digital’s ties to content
distributors such as Apple, Amazon, Google, and Netflix.
Buchsbaum most recently served as a Production and Post
Production Consultant and Managing Partner at Traveling Light Partners, an
independent film and television production company. Previously, he served for
six years as President of The Post Group and CEO of its affiliates, Lighting
Media and iO Film. During his tenure, The Post Group became the first
independent post house to implement a complete file-based workflow for
production and distribution. His background also includes service as President
of Video Research Corporation and Vice President General Manager of All Post.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, 2G Digital is a
leading independent provider of post production and distribution services,
including mastering and versioning, transcoding and encoding, and digital
delivery. The company is capable of preparing film and television content for
delivery to all major video-on-demand and electronic-sell-through portals
including iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Xbox, PlayStation and others, with
comprehensive quality control and security.
