Testronic moves into new LA facility

October 6, 2020

Testronic, a specialist in quality assurance (QA), localisation services, and compliance for the film, television and games industries has moved its Burbank headquarters, expanding capacity and investing in state-of-the-art technology.

The move, which took place mid-September during strict stay-at-home orders in LA, was able to complete on schedule and in time for the end of summer influx of volume, despite current Covid-19 restrictions.

Testronic said the bigger facility is necessitated due to increased demand for its automation/OTT/streaming,  Master QC and Disc QC services. Just a few blocks up the street from the previous office, Testronic will continue having a presence in downtown Burbank, while keeping it’s global footprint with offices in London, Warsaw, Santiago de Chile, as well as the recent acquisition of Whyttest with offices in Romania and Serbia.

Jason Gish, Testronic Film & TV President, said: “As the ‘Golden Eyes of Hollywood’, providing testing for the film industry and now the streaming industry, we needed to expand space for our staff and our facility to support the volume of work coming through our facility. Our experienced and highly trained staff need facilities that can support all the major platforms that consumers are using to ensure the work from the major studios and streaming partners can be tested for optimal consumer experience.”

The new facility more than doubles the capacity of the former facility, providing two mastering theatres and seven mastering bays with the ability to expand into another eight bays as needed. Testronic has invested in increased storage capacity with a Quantum SAN with 192 TB tier one storage and 864 TB tier two storage.
