ZOO Digital Extends Services in Asia Pacific with Kantana Group Partnership (MESA)

ZOO Digital’s two-year partnership with Kantana Group has expanded in Thailand and Vietnam. The localisation service provider has built on its partnership with one of Thailand’s oldest and largest film studios, to help grow its cloud dubbing service.

ZOO Digital President Gordon Doran said: “I’m delighted to announce that we have extended our partnership and services with Kantana Group in Thailand and Vietnam. We now have an extensive capability for cloud subtitling and dubbing services in key territories in Asia Pacific, including Korea, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam.”

The Thailand-based production company has been trained in ZOO’s cutting -edge software and is currently using ZOOdubs to work on in-territory dubbing projects.

Doran added: “Key goals for ZOO are to increase our global reach through partnerships and to recruit leading dubbing talent from around the world – without being constrained by studio
locations. This gives content owners the flexibility to choose where they want their dubbing projects to be recorded while making it financially viable to dub a far wider variety of
content without compromise to quality.”

Kantana is helping ZOO to build capacity, increase the local dubbing talent pool and identify suitable in-territory traditional and alternative recording environments.

Kantana CEO Surachedh Assawaruenganun said: “The partnership with ZOO has gone from strength to strength and shows how effectively cloud dubbing promotes collaboration around the world. We’ve had dubbing directors based in Los Angeles give real-time feedback on auditions in Thailand and it’s amazing to see how quickly people have adapted to this new way of working.”
