Purple Dragon Media was founded in early 2013 by Mark White who already had a long history in the subtitle preparation industry.  Having worked for many years producing preparation systems, news systems, transmission, DVD image generation Mark felt it was time to design, build and sell his own system.  The first version of this system, Onyx, is now complete and available.

Onyx provides a software platform that not only is a preparation system but provides a vehicle to build quick, bespoke applications to convert files en masse.  With the first version of Onyx available work will proceed to implement as many file formats as possible in the near future.  Many of these will be built into the Onyx preparation app and provided as free updates to its users.
