Background: Platinum was founded in 1995 to release VHSs [and later DVDs] of public domain films for a cheaper price than other companies. In 2002, Platinum acquired PM Entertainment, an independent film studio, from the Harvey Entertainment Group. This allowed Platinum to begin releasing modern films as well as the older movies. In 2005, Platinum merged with Echo Bridge Entertainment to form Echo Bridge Home Entertainment, which would become one of the largest DVD distributors in the country. Echo Bridge continues to use the Platinum brand for some releases.
