Royal Philips Electronics and Crest National announced a partnership agreement to develop a Super-Audio CD hybrid disc production line to be installed in Crest National's replication facilities in Hollywood.

The production line is scheduled to be installed this summer, with full production byh fall of this year. The first line will have a production capacity of 3 million SACD hybrid discs a year, with more lines to follow, according to Philips.

According to Philips, this is the first SACD hybrid disc production line to be established in the U.S., and will increase the available hybrid disc-manufacturing capacity to meet the rapidly increasing demand for this new medium. The agreement also includes post-production activities in SACD authoring.

"Philips is pleased that SACD hybrid disc production will now be installed by one of the leading disc replicators and post-production facilities in the world," said Jos Bruins, Philips marketing director for the Super-Audio CD format. "This is an important part of the next phase of the roll out of SACD into the mass market."

"Crest National is pleased to be taking a leading role in SACD hybrid disc manufacturing," said Ronald E. Stein, president of Crest National. "We welcome the opportunity to partner with Philips to bring this exciting new medium to North America. It is a further reflection of Crest's experience and expertise in implementing new technologies and bringing high-quality products to the world's most demanding customers."
