DemiseEdit

Despite the rarity of the films they released, Cascadia developed a negative reputation for the poor image and sound quality of their releases (which they claimed were 'remastered.') This led Cascadia to begin releasing more common public domain films, which were available in better quality. The company eventually changed its name to Digital Disc, and their division Cascadia Labs became DDC Labs. Digital Disc continued to release films for several years, but did not reissue any films that had been released by Cascadia. Digital Disc closed in the late 2000s.
