Universal Pictures' worldwide creative services group has promoted Matt Apice to vice president of digital production.

Apice continues to report to the group's executive vice president Dan Wolfe and assumes a brief that includes co-ordination of post-production operations with other departments and identifying emerging technologies.

'As a former editor, Matt has become an excellent liaison between our team's creative and technical personnel,' Wolfe said.

'He was instrumental in the creation of our in-house Trailer DI facility and leads our content-transfer, tapeless workflow and security initiatives.'
