4K Media Inc. is an American production company currently owned by Konami. It was formerly a subsidiary of 4Kids Entertainment from 1995 to 2012 and its predecessor Leisure Concepts from 1992 to 1995 under the name 4Kids Productions, and was responsible for adapting and producing English language dubs of Japanese anime such as Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Sonic X among others, as well as producing original live action programs such as WMAC Masters. In total the company has overseen development and adapatation of over 1700 animated episodes.
The company was shut down by 4Kids Entertainment on June 30, 2012, due to continued lack of profitability, but the production office was acquired by Konami and renamed "4K Media" later that year. The company is currently dedicated to the licensing, sales, and distribution of the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand in the United States, including Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and its spinoffs.
The company was founded as 4Kids Productions in 1992, alongside The Summit Media Group, Inc. which was responsible to handle syndication rights for various licensed products in both print and broadcast media, while 4Kids Productions was meant to buy and produce animated and live-action properties, which it then distributed to the television, home video, and theatrical markets.
