MVD

MVD Entertainment Group (previously known as Music Video Distributors, Inc) was founded in 1986 by Tom Seaman, an industry veteran of more than 40 years, whose background includes retailing stints with Record Hunter, Sam Goody, Musicland, CBS Retail, and wholesale experience with Jem Records. MVD initially acted primarily as a one-stop, buying all labels' music-related VHS releases and reselling to music and video stores. Getting involved with DVD early, MVD called upon its strong relationships with content holders, labels, artists, and management to become a world leader in music DVD. In 2006, MVD expanded further and launched an audio CD division based on these same strong relationships with suppliers and customers. MVD Entertainment Group is a corporation consisting of three major divisions: MVD Visual, MVD Audio, and MVD Distribution. MVD Visual: MVD’s exclusively represented Music DVD division has been re-branded as MVD Visual. Since 1999, this division has released over 500 titles, and is currently one of the largest producers of Music DVD in 2006. MVD Visual specializes in producing, releasing, marketing, and distributing music-related DVDs for worldwide release. MVD Visual has an unparalleled focus on music DVD, which allows for aggressive marketing, publicity, promotion, and sales. Music DVD is center stage for MVD Visual, not an ancillary project. MVD Visual also includes Eclectic DVD, which features unusual, sometimes cult non-music DVD products. MVD Audio: handles exclusive distribution and representation for audio content on CD. MVD Audio has content agreements with several record labels including Inakustik (Germany), Secret Records Ltd. (UK), and Metal Mind Productions (Poland) as well as many independent artists. MVD Distribution: The wholesale operation of MVD is now called MVD Distribution. This division is a one-stop for Music DVD, carrying the best selection of the format in the world, and further offers a very large selection of non-music DVD. MVD Distribution executes the physical fulfillment of its products (including MVD Audio and MVD Visual), servicing major chains, distributors, one-stops, online retail, and independent retail. MVD Distribution runs its 20,000 square foot warehouse in Oaks, PA.
