Transmission creates home entertainment arm

Film distributor Transmission Films today launched its home entertainment and consumer product arm.

Transmission Home Entertainment brings production, marketing and publicity for the company’s range of bluray, DVD and digital products in house. Distribution and sales will remain under the management of parent company Paramount Home Entertainment Australia.

Over the past four years Transmission Films has theatrically released films such as The King’s Speech, Beneath Hill 60 and An Education, with Paramount looking after the home entertainment releases.

The new arm will allow the Transmission brand to extend its distribution of art house, independent, Australian and cult films.

Sheree Gray, senior brand manager acquisitions at Paramount Home Entertainment Australia will take the newly created role of general manager home entertainment and digital in March. Gray has worked at Transmission since 2008.

Richard Payten, joint Managing Director of Transmission Films, said: “As Transmission enters its next stage of growth, Sheree’s appointment marks an important step forward for our company. In her role at Paramount Home Entertainment Sheree was responsible for managing our brand, which she successfully helped build into what it is today – one of Australia’s leading entertainment companies. Now, as a full-time Transmission executive she will be able to focus on taking the company to the next level, including managing our digital content.”
