ZOO Digital Grows Indian Presence

2nd November 2023

ZOO Digital Group plc , the provider of localisation (dubbing and subtitles) and media services to many of the largest streaming providers and Hollywood studios, has expanded its operations in India with the launch of a new production facility in Chennai.

The launch of a second multi-purpose facility in India, alongside Mumbai, is  to support the production of dubbing and other media localisation services in regional languages in the region. The facility will harness the rich pool of local talent to create authentic localised content, helping to address the increasing global demand for high-quality South Indian language content and distribution of non-South Indian titles in India.

This expansion follows a successful first full year for ZOO India since its integration to the Group in March 2022. It also highlights ZOO’s commitment to meeting the evolving market needs of its entertainment industry clients, recognising the significant growth potential of the region with OTT revenue in India predicted to grow to approximately $4.5bn by 2026.

Stuart Green, CEO of ZOO Digital, said:

“The establishment of our new facility in Chennai marks a significant milestone for ZOO Digital’s operations in India. We are proud of the success of ZOO India to date, which reflects the importance of the region to all global streaming services and the expertise of our talented team. This second facility will scale up capacity to more than double ZOO India’s revenues in FY24, while catering to the region’s wide array of languages and the diverse post-production needs of our clients.”
