Los Angeles-based digital media services company Inception Digital Services (IDS) is joining forces with authoring studio Infomedia GmbH Multi Media Services to open a European facility in Dortmund, Germany.

IDS said it plans to open other facilities in the UK, Canada and Australia by the end of the year.

The Dortmund facility will provide content owners with digital media services needed to deliver films to the German, Austrian and Swiss iTunes Movie stores.

“Many of our North America platform partners are rapidly expanding into international territories and our goal is to support the needs of both the platforms and content owners around the world,” said IDS president Erik Pence.

IDS is a subsidiary of entertainment content production, acquisition and distribution operation Inception Media Group. Infomedia is part of optical storage media company the Infodisc Group.
