LOS ANGELES — Zoo Digital (www.zoodigital.com), a provider of globalization services, is working to make it easier for content creators and streaming services to reach new audiences. The company has announced significant growth plans to enhance its footprint around the globe, including a series of strategic investments that will enhance operations in Turkey, Korea, Thailand, India, Japan and Malaysia. In support of this initiative, Zoo is also expanding and enhancing its existing facilities in Los Angeles, London, Dubai and Sheffield.
Using a cloud-based technology ecosystem, along with a collaborative network of independent dubbing studios, vendor partners and freelance actors and translators, Zoo can deliver complete, end-to-end services to ready content for audiences in all languages and formats. The new global investments will make the company better suited to address its clients’ challenges of localizing and fulfilling huge volumes of original and catalogue content. It will also help support the increasing need to prepare locally acquired TV shows and movies for streaming services around the world.
The expanded Zoo Digital Group will consist of established businesses that have been affiliate partners to Zoo for several years. These companies, which include media service providers and localization vendors, already have experience working in the cloud-based technology that Zoo operates throughout its global ecosystem of partners and freelancers.
“Southeast Asia, the Middle East and India are all experiencing rapid growth as content centers for an increasingly global audience,” notes Gordon Doran, Zoo president. “Our strategic growth in these regions adds scale to Zoo’s operations and enhances the level of creativity, quality and security of services we can offer our clients in fast-growing regions. By aligning our business with their growth ambitions, we can address their challenges and make their lives easier.”
