BTI Studios Expands Premises in LA

Leading Localization Company increases capacity in the US

BTI Studios is one of the leading localization players globally, providing dubbing, subtitling and access services in over 80 languages. Clients are Video-on-Demand (“VoD”) platforms such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu; major film studios such as NBC Universal, Warner, Disney and Fox; and broadcasters such as Discovery, Turner and Viacom.

BTI Studios launched its LA facility in 2014 to support the fast-growing expansion of the entertainment industry across VoD and OTT platforms. The facility has grown to home 22 full-time staff today, with even more experts set to join the LA team this year.

On 4th January, BTI Studios LA opened their new facility just around the corner to 3601, West Olive Avenue. The new LA facility is 4 times bigger than the previous facility, covering over 12,000 square feet.

As well as having more space for the production and client services teams, BTI Studios’ new LA facility will include custom built dubbing studios to enable dubbing, voiceover, video description, QC and mixing to be produced on-site.

Björn Lifvergren, CEO at BTI Studios, commented, “We are excited to move into this new phase with BTI Studios in LA. As we continue to grow globally we are acting to ensure clients are given the best possible service from all of our facilities. Expanding the team and services we provide in Burbank will help us to support clients across the US with their localization needs.”

Carlo DeCianti, Global SVP of Sales and acting MD of BTI Studios LA, commented, “It’s fantastic to have witnessed the growth of BTI Studios in LA. Along with updating workflows and implementing new technologies we will continue to grow our LA team, not only to meet increasing demand for localization in the US but to ensure we continue to provide the highest level of service to our clients.”
