ZOO Digital has announced the opening of a state-of-the-art facility in Dubai. Offering secure, local services in the Middle East, the facility extends ZOO’s reach to provide dubbing, subtitling and media services utilising its cloud-based platforms.

The purpose-built facility, designed with CDSA and MPAA security requirements in mind, includes fully-equipped dubbing studios, transcriber and translator workstations, media editing and quality control bays with 5.1 audio and 4K video, as well as modern management offices for in-territory clients and directors.

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.”

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.”
