Security


"We don't follow industry best practices. We create them."

LADB is the only post-production company worldwide to have three concurrent ISO certifications – ISO 27001, ISO 9001 and ISO 22301. ISO is an internationally recognized family of standards. We have gone into great lengths to achieve this distinction because the future of our industry relies upon vigilant protection of your content today.

ISO 27001 outlines thorough requirements for managing, maintaining and protecting content and ensuring information security.

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized information security standard that outlines thorough requirements for managing, maintaining and protecting information – from hand-off to hand-back. ISO 27001 Certification is the process by which organizations are evaluated to meet and conform to this standard.

The ISO 27001 standard is managed, updated and certified by the International Organization for Standardization. Any company that claims to be “ISO 27001 certified” has been verified to fully meet all requirements specified.

LADB was audited by National Quality Assurance Organization (NQA-USA.com) to receive our ISO Certifications. While there are no absolute guarantees of content protection or information security, ISO 27001 is internationally agreed to be the highest standard to protect information.

ISO 9001 outlines quality requirements for the manufacturing, production, quality assurance, repeatability and improvement of any product or services.

The ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard is the most widely recognized and established quality management system framework in the world. The ISO 9001 standard outlines a number of requirements, which provide the foundation to meet customer expectation. One of the quality benefits of ISO 9001 is the monitoring and measuring the services processes. This provides quality repeatability in meeting your requirements.

The ISO 9001 Standard dictates the traceability for every stage of a product’s life, or provision of a service from storage of the raw materials used to the maintenance and upkeep of the product after it has left the assembly line. It checks to ensure that the product works exactly as ordered, is consistently free of any defects, is safe to use, and includes every piece of peripheral information necessary to using the product.

ISO 9001 also states requirements for thorough record keeping, effectiveness checks for all processes, and effectiveness checks for the quality management system as a whole. All aspects of the manufacturing process are addressed, thereby ensuring consistency, quality and safety.

Any company or manufacturer who claims they are “ISO 9001 Certified” has been verified to be in full conformance with ISO 9001 Standards.

LADB was audited by National Quality Assurance Organization (NQA-USA.com) to receive our ISO Certifications. While there are no absolute guarantees to eliminate risk in any business process, ISO 9001 is internationally agreed to be the highest standard to ensure a consistent operational process.

ISO 22301 provides a framework to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain, and continually improve a business continuity management system. ISO 22301 falls under the Societal security category of ISO standards and was created to be a business-led contingency planning and disaster recovery standard to mitigate the effects of disruptive incidents on society–from large scale natural disasters and acts of terror to technology-related accidents and environmental incidents. Using models from several countries, including Australia, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States, public and private sector stakeholders came together to create ISO 22301.

ISO 22301 is included as a PS-Prep standard. PS-Prep is a partnership between the Department of Homeland Security and the private sector that lets private businesses demonstrate their capabilities for plan for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other emergencies.

The ISO 22301 PS-Prep certification shows that LADB will continue to be equipped to resume business operations to its client promptly even if a disaster strikes.

LADB was audited by National Quality Assurance Organization (NQA-USA.com) to receive our ISO Certifications. While there are no absolute guarantees to eliminate risk in any business process, ISO 22301 is internationally agreed to be the highest standard to ensure continuity in operations.

LADB participates in the Content Delivery & Security Association’s Content Protection and Security (CPS) Program. The CPS standards and procedures were requested by content owners and organizations providing services within the content delivery supply chain. These standards and procedures are designed to enhance protection of assets and products by supply chain sites as value-added services for their content-owner customers.

CDSA achieves worldwide acclaim for its anti-piracy and content protection security standards, CDSA has focused its activities on protecting entertainment IP throughout the supply chain, both pre-release and post release content. LADB is a CDSA Certified Facility and strictly implements the processes and procedures as required by the standards of the CPS Program.

While there are no absolute guarantees to eliminate risk in any business process, participation in the CDSA CPS program ensures the additional guidance in the implementation of up-to-date best practice procedures in ensuring content security.

In order to protect the future of our industry, we all must do a better job of protecting our content today. ISO Certifications and MPAA auditing are not enough, so to that end, LADB has taken a leadership position by creating the LADB Secure Future Commitment.

This protocol is based upon MPAA Audit practices and ISO 27001 requirements, both of which we rigidly follow. It outlines the eleven critical principles that our industry must embrace. We appeal to all companies across the entertainment spectrum - be they suppliers, customers or even our competitors – to join us in this important initiative.

OUR HISTORY


It takes decades to create the future
An industry pioneer in entertainment for a half century



Just like those who pioneered the largest production and post-production companies serving Hollywood (Technicolor, Deluxe), the management at LADB (which guides and supports the staff) has a vast and successful legacy as a trusted partner for the top content owners ranging over 5 decades.


The Present - We are a customer-oriented post production company offering our expertise in a wide variety of quality and cost effective services with fast results. In 2002 LADB began offering unique post production services to several major Hollywood studios and TV networks as well as over 200 other Hollywood production companies and leading streaming distributors. With our constantly updating technology and rapid turnaround services we began a steady rise as a trusted name when our clients need something done quickly and correctly.

History / Experience Counts

The Beginning of 50 years of industry leadership - In 1966, Robert Seidenglanz (LADB management) was hands on involved on several filmed TV shows all done at major studios, as well as a motion picture, Tobruk, a Universal feature with the special effects team on location with the Howard Anderson Company. He then worked on ABC Wide World of Sports (1 of 11 permanently assigned to the WWS engineering staff out of 700 engineers), then later, many TV shows on video including Laugh In, Steve Allen and ABC's Operation Entertainment (a weekly 1 hour primetime special lasting a year and a half which entertained our servicemen, many who were already gravely injured, all videotaped on American Military bases stateside during Vietnam!).

Then in 1970-71 Compact Video Inc. is founded and hits the road, soon establishing a legacy as the most trusted partner for the top content owners. From concept to Prime Time Television!

1968 Concept 1970 Prototype 1971 Compact hits the road

Compact Video changed television forever as it took television production out of the studio and gave top content owners a practical set of tools (compared to film one on one) yet vastly increased speed of production and electronic video editing over film.
