Montreal, November, 2011 – One of the key figures in the Québec entertainment industry, Richard Bélanger, founder and president of RSB Disc for the last 30 years, is taking his company to the next level under a new banner: RSB iMEDIA. RSB unveiled its new branding today, including a fresh name, logo and website, developed to better reflect the innovative services it offers.
With a newly acquired independence, the company, which controls 80 per cent of the Québec music industry, will continue to be a leading partner in the entertainment industry, offering an integrated line of media services. In addition to manufacturing CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays, RSB iMEDIA provides a vast array of first-rate related services and turnkey virtual solutions to its clientele.
For this new adventure, Richard Bélanger has partnered with Daniel Foisy, a skilled executive who possesses solid experience in the field of finances. As senior vice-president and chief operating officer, Mr. Foisy will be in charge of the operational and financial aspects of the company, while Mr. Bélanger will dedicate himself to client-driven activities, business development and strategic direction.
RSB iMEDIA has its own CD and DVD production facilities here in Montreal that can manufacture close to 20 million units per year, as well as Blu-ray and vinyl manufacturing services thanks to an affiliated partner. The company, which plans to further expand its activities, possesses the necessary freedom to better serve its clientele, thanks to its capacity to generate adapted solutions. RSB iMEDIA sees to the needs of small and large companies in the entertainment industry as well as those of independent artists, by proposing innovative virtual solutions including “Poste d’écoute”, which earned the 2010 SOCAN “Patron of Music” award.
Although we are in an age where digital downloads and online streaming are more and more common, Mr. Bélanger, who has always remained ahead of the curve in an industry in perpetual movement, believes that CDs are not going to disappear overnight. “We are always preparing for the future by evolving with the digital world, and we will continue to be at the forefront of new trends,” said the president and founder of RSB iMEDIA.
Throughout his career, Mr. Bélanger has gone from vinyl to cassettes to digital culture via 8-track tapes, Beta, VHS and now CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray.
