PARIS, France—Vanessa Media, a Canadian company which distributes VividTV and HustlerTV to Canadian citizens, and long-time French adult producer Marc Dorcel have joined forces to launch a high-end adult network in Canada, as well as a dedicated Dorcel VOD service, which will be available both in French and in English.
“For obvious reasons, because we share similar culture and values, the Canadian market has always been very important to Marc Dorcel," said Gregory Dorcel, CEO of Marc Dorcel. "We are thrilled to engage in a partnership with Anne-Marie Losique who clearly has the same the same will to propel eroticism to its highest level. Our ambition is to offer together, under our brand, throughout Canada, the best of adult entertainment.”
Marc Dorcel has always produced high quality material, with an eye for minute detail, such that Dorcel films have set a worldwide standard. This one-of-a-kind vision of adult content gave rise to Dorcel's famous trademark, "Pornochic."
A European leader of high-end X-rated movies, and fully engaged in the production and distribution of adult content, Marc Dorcel, active through 56 countries, is constantly exploring new facets of the industry. Their understanding of the global industry granted them a successful foray into the market as producers of multimedia programs and services: creation of three stand-alone TV networks (including Dorcel TV), Web and mobile sites, magazines and concept stores, etc. And then there's Dorcelvision, a leader in VOD services in Europe. This expertise has convinced the biggest operators to trust the company with the management and supply of their products.
Back in 1979, X-rated films were banned from traditional cinemas. At the same time, VCRs were slowly making their way into French homes. At the forefront of the era’s technology, Marc Dorcel (who until that time had published erotic photo novels and magazines) began supplying adult features on videotape. With this innovation, X-rated films could no longer be hidden; they entered the household, and took their place in the lives of couples everywhere.
The company’s enthusiasm for current technologies has not since diminished. Marc Dorcel has always been among the trendsetters of new media. When video-on-demand services took off in 2008 and 2009, the VOD platform Dorcelvision had eight solid years under its belt. A global pioneer, Dorcel and its VOD services represent nearly 30 percent of the VOD market share in France.
Always a trailblazer, Marc Dorcel was the first, in 2010, to propose 3D content in France. The company is now offering productions that are entirely shot in 4K UHD, as well as virtual reality productions. Marc Dorcel is all about media innovation; a true love story between content and support, in the name of accessible pleasure for all.
