LONDON and BARCELONA, Sept. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VSI is delighted to welcome Sonygraf, one of Spain’s most prominent dubbing and audio post-production facilities, as the newest member of the VSI Group. This latest acquisition further reinforces VSI’s leading position in the field of localisation, being the only company with its own studios in all four FIGS (France, Italy, Germany, Spain) territories.
Now renamed VSI Sonygraf, and based in central Barcelona, this high-end, purpose-built 1,500 m2 facility boasts seven sound recording and editing studios, two theatrical mixing rooms, three 5.1 mixing rooms and two post-production suites, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
A pioneer in the Spanish and Catalan broadcast and cinema industry, Sonygraf was first established in 1954. Continuous investment in the facility has maintained its position at the forefront of the dubbing industry, and its reputation for producing quality Spanish language versions in one of the world’s most important dubbing territories.
VSI Sonygraf additionally has dubbing studios in Valencia, and will soon expand further in Spain. It also provides subtitling and other supporting services.
Jordi Daura, current Sonygraf president and son of original founder, Joan Daura, had this to say about the deal:
“We are very proud of the contribution Sonygraf has made to the development of audio-visual post-production in Spain, and our long-term retention of many of the world’s leading broadcasters, VOD platforms and film studios as our clients, in what is an extremely competitive market. We decided to join forces with an international localisation provider, VSI, with its outstanding track-record, was a natural choice. We respect their quality-led approach and that whilst they function as a global business, studios in local territories retain their own identity.”
VSI Group Managing Director, Norman Dawood, added:
“I’m thrilled that Sonygraf is now part the VSI Group. We have worked together as partners for a number of years, and the excellence of their work sits perfectly with the high levels of quality provided by our studios in Paris, Berlin, Rome and in other key territories. As a result of this acquisition, VSI is the only localisation provider with its own dubbing facilities in all four FIGS territories, a position which will further enhance the solutions and level of creative control we can offer to our clients.”
