Color grading, restoration and film scanning product provider Digital Vision has been bought out by its management team – Kelvin Bolah, Greg Holland and Claes Westerlund. They acquired the company from Swedish company Image Systems for 6.1 Million SEK.

The entire Digital Vision team will remain in place, and offices in London, LA, Melbourne, New York and Sweden will also remain. In a press release, new CEO Bolah said, “Digital Vision’s staff, customers and partners were of the utmost importance in this acquisition and our main reason for the management buy-out. Having worked with them for many years and seeing their passion, expertise and the amazing projects they produce, we knew we had to keep the Digital Vision brand alive. With the investment that the company now has we will be able to accelerate the R&D and engineering to deliver our award-winning products in a timely fashion to a global customer base.”
