Los Angeles, CA., Jan. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Just four months after the opening of a new dubbing studio in Munich, Germany, SDI Media announces additional expansion of the facility due to significant customer demand and volumes. SDI Media Germany GmbH opened in Munich September 2012. As a result of higher than anticipated demand, the global service provider is announcing immediate plans for additional build-outs, doubling its Munich capacity during the first half of 2013. In addition, SDI is also in the process of expanding its Berlin operations, including the addition of numerous recording, mixing, and editing suites. SDI has also recently expanded its staff at both locations, including the addition of client managers, bookers, schedulers, and director support.

Committed to offering clients ever-greater access to its integrated global network of facilities and technology, SDI is expanding both German facilities to ensure sufficient capacity is available for already committed dubbing projects and the additional growth expected in the next 12-18 months. The expansion provides SDI the ability to service more projects locally and continue providing German broadcasters accelerated time-to-market capabilities with greater recording and mixing capacity.

"Our recent expansion into Munich provided our clients an opportunity to have a second SDI solution in Germany to manage projects in territory with local talent," said Walter Schonfeld, SDI Media's CEO. "With both studios already operating near full capacity, SDI has elected to expand both to ensure our clients have the capacity and resources necessary to complete projects seamlessly, with the same efficiencies SDI is known for."

SDI has also recently announced the next phase of its global plan for footprint expansion and upgrades to its existing facilities - SDI will be entering 3 new markets the first half of 2013, and will be upgrading 7 existing facilities (in addition to the German facility upgrades) during the upcoming calendar year. These investments will extend to facilities in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. As with all recent expansions/upgrades, SDI's funding will continue to come from internally generated sources. This further purports SDI's strong financial position and low debt levels, which allow SDI to invest at these aggressive rates for the foreseeable future.
