No, Arrow Video are staying. They always planned to move some Arrow Video DVDs over to ArrowDrome, and release some of the BD only Arrow Video titles on the ArrowDrome label too. See below for the reasoning for this which I posted in another thread.

The plan, therefore, was always to move these titles to ArrowDrome once stocks ran out. However, the fire at Sony has destroyed all stock not already with retailers and so this has forced the guys at Arrow to put this plan into action sooner than anticipated.
