ZOO Digital has announced the opening of a facility in Dubai offering dubbing, subtitling and media services with its cloud-based platforms.
The purpose-built facility, designed with CDSA and MPAA security requirements in mind, includes dubbing studios, transcriber and translator workstations, media editing and quality control bays with 5.1 audio and 4K video, as well as management offices for in-territory clients and directors, the release stated.
Launched in partnership with ZOO affiliate, Lime Green Media, the Dubai facility reportedly provides a secure local hub for content owners to ingest, localise and distribute their content.
The facility supports TV and movie content owners with dubbing and subtitling services for Arabic languages and allows studios to release titles to new audiences and reportedly capitalise on in-territory opportunities to distribute content worldwide.
The facilitys 22 in-territory staff will use ZOOs cloud-based platforms to ensure content remains contained and traceable in the cloud, while collaborating with ZOOs ecosystem around the world, the release stated.
Dubbing directors will also use the facility as a central hub while working with a pool of local adaptors and voice talent.
Elaborating on the services, Gordon Doran, President, ZOO Digital said: This facility is a first in the region for Arabic cloud dubbing and is an important in-territory ingest point for local language film and television. This comes as many of our clients seek to expand their media offerings in and from this part of the world. Arabic titles beginning here will take their first steps of a journey to worldwide media distribution on OTT platforms.
Commenting on the facility, Syed Ahmed, International Business Development, ZOO Digital said: The Dubai facility cements our position on content security, project visibility and allows us to further enhance our presence and service offering for global clients in the local market.
ZOO Digital will be exhibiting at IBC 2018 (Stand 5.B48) between September 14 18.
