ZOO Digital today announces the launch of its new ZOO Korea production facility. The Seoul-based facility features six state-of-the-art recording booths, three mixing rooms, group recording capability, and four QC bays – all fully integrated with ZOO’s cloud-based production ecosystem.
The expanded production facility follows the successful launch of ZOO Korea, which acts as a hub for globalization and client collaboration in the SEA region, supporting the continued worldwide popularity and localization of Korean content.
ZOO Korea is equipped to provide high-quality, secure dubbing, subtitling, QC, mastering and media services, giving entertainment industry clients greater opportunity and scale for globalization in the region, supporting the continued global demand for Korean content and the distribution of non-Korean titles in the country. With the additional technical capability, ZOO Korea now offers clients a full-service globalization offering, giving the biggest names in entertainment a reliable sole supplier of localization and media services at scale.
Jonghyun Oh, Managing Director, ZOO Korea, commented: “Following the launch of ZOO Korea, the group has seen exceptional growth with exciting projects from the biggest and best global content creators. The latest expansion of ZOO Korea takes things to the next level, opening greater opportunity for content going into and out of the Korean market. The new facility further enhances our capacity to deliver fast, scalable dubbing, subtitling, QC, mastering, and media services for our clients.”
ZOO President, Gordon Doran, added: “ZOO Korea has hit the ground running and made the decision to expand a simple one. We are here to support our clients where they need us, and the demand for globalized Korean content is constant. ZOO Korea now offers a future-focused facility that can accommodate the requirements of our clients, offering an expanded and flexible servicing hub in the region. As with all ZOO Digital production facilities, the set-up offers state-of-the-art equipment, while also benefitting from our cloud-based ecosystem, ensuring rigorous security measures, production efficiencies and connection to an expansive network of in-territory talent.”
ZOO Digital has since expanded its investment in the Korean hub, following strong first year performance, with the acquisition of the remaining 49 percent of ZOO Korea.
