Ascent Media joins forces with SDI Media for multilingual services

Ascent Media Group has formed a strategic alliance with SDI Media, a provider of multilingual translation services, to expand its international capabilities and provide language localization services.

Those new services include: content storage in a globally distributed archive to enable content owners to reuse their language elements for new distribution channels; creation of foreign masters and distribution products with dubbed and/or subtitled languages; and the integration of dubbing and subtitling processes into asset management and broadcast playout fulfillment service.

The alliance, which will be managed by an executive committee from both companies, allows Ascent Media Group to increase market share internationally while offering clients expanded language localization offerings from a centralized point of contact, according to Jose Royo, CEO of Ascent Media Group.
