“Serving Artists and Audiences” is MVD’s purpose statement; it represents a commitment to the interests of the musicians, filmmakers, record labels, producers, managers, and every link in the supply chain.

MVD Entertainment Group was founded in 1986 by Tom Seaman, an industry veteran with prior experience with The Record Hunter, Sam Goody, CBS Retail, and JEM Distribution. Tom, along with his family Elinor, Eve and Ed, initially focused on music videotapes.
At the turn of the century, with the advent of DVD, MVD built a large catalog of exclusively distributed audiovisual content on DVD’s, with special strength in music concert films, horror movies, documentaries, comedy, cult classics, and much more.
In 2006, at the request of many of MVD’s label partners, MVD entered the audio distribution business. Soon thereafter MVD merged with Big Daddy Music Distribution, and picked up a large catalog of CDs, vinyl and digital audio rights.
MVD stays on the cutting edge of new media with a huge catalog of audio and visual digital rights, and by nurturing its direct relationships with the major digital and VOD platforms. MVD works with a variety of up-and-coming platforms as well and actively pursues new relationships.
Today, MVD is still family owned and operated. With its base of operations in Pottstown, PA , MVD runs a 30,000 square foot warehouse and office space with approximately 30 full time employees.
