Hello. I'm Wayne Dyrness, the president of digitalTDS. I'm glad you chose to visit our web site. I hope you enjoy your stay here. Even more, I hope that you'll discover along with thousands of others why digitalTDS has become the supplier of choice for TV Stations, Duplication Houses, Studios, Churches and Individuals. Great Prices - Great Product - Great Customer Service. A winning Combination!
Our original name was Tape Duplication Supply, Inc. (TDS) - founded in 1976 in Seattle, WA U.S.A.
We began as a cassette loader and expanded into audio cassette duplication and on-location recording. A few years later, added a full video production company which included video duplication. Supplying media and supplies to churches has always been a main focus, and remains so today.
In the early 90's, the desktop video revolution was pioneered by Newtek (the makes of the famous Video Toaster). TDS became an authorized dealer for Newtek and became one of the premier dealers in the Northwest. It was decided that a subsidary of TDS be formed to focus in on video production, so as not conflict with the media & equipment sales of TDS.. MediaQuest Studios was formed and focused on corporate video (Microsoft, Weyerhaeuser, Country Stove, etc.)
MediaQuest has won numerous national awards for its productions and offers a complete state-of-the-art facility, complete with duplication of audio, video, CD and DVD duplication.
In 2010, it became apparent that we needed to update our business name to reflect current technology. Since most customers knew us as TDS, we wanted to keep some link to the past while embracing the future. We changed our name to digitalTDS.
digitalTDS has grown to be major supplier of media, equipment, and supplies; and offers some of the most competitive pricing in the nation.
