Pixelogic, a global provider of content localization and distribution services for the media and entertainment industry, has reached an agreement to acquire Korean dubbing studio Juice Media.
Established in 2008, Juice Media is an innovative provider of dubbing and audio services, with clients including US studios, streaming platforms and local content distributors. The company operates from two locations with 4 ADR rooms and 3 audio mix rooms and is TPN certified.
The acquisition enhances Pixelogic’s existing operation in Korea that provides subtitling and media services, by adding dubbing and audio capabilities. The investment will also further strengthen the company’s end-to-end service offering across the localization and distribution supply chain.
“The acquisition of Juice Media represents our ongoing commitment to address capacity challenges facing our customers in key markets” said Holger Hendel, Managing Director EMEA for Pixelogic. “By leveraging our operational expertise, proprietary technology and partnership with experienced local subject matter experts, our goal is to increase Korean dubbing capacity with streamlined solutions that deliver higher quality and faster time to market.”
Doug Higgins, SVP Global Dubbing and Audio Services for Pixelogic noted “this is a significant step for us in the Korean market, where we see an opportunity to address our customers’ needs. This facility, along with the existing dubbing operations of our parent company Imagica in Tokyo, creates a strong foundation for our combined dubbing capabilities in the region.”
Upon completion of the acquisition, Pixelogic plans to make additional investments in Korea including facility and capacity expansion and deployment of proprietary tools and technology.
Juice CEO Minsoo Kim said, “Our team is excited to partner with Pixelogic as we work together to build an industry-leading dubbing capability in Korea. We share Pixelogic’s focus on customer service, quality and technology leadership.”
The transaction is scheduled to close at the end of May.
