The Industry’s Only Emmy Winning Dubbing Studios
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 26, 2015
MIAMI/JOHANNESBURG: The Kitchen, the industry’s only Emmy Award Winning language dubbing studios, will be returning to DISCOP Africa again this year.
The leader provider of language dubbing for the pan-African market is excited to again be a part of DISCOP Africa and is thrilled to be an important and major contributor to the success of the African television market.
“DISCOP Africa has become one of our most successful markets each year,” Ken Lorber, President/CEO of The Kitchen, explained. “It is an excellent opportunity for us to meet face to face with the programmers, distributors, producers, networks and studios from around the globe, all wishing to air their product on the African TV networks”.
While The Kitchen dubs all languages, into US English, Brazilian Portuguese and Parisian French, it relies on its close association with Ear Candy, South Africa’s leading dubbing company, to provide many of the local Sub-saharan African languages
“Our understanding of the African market has given us the opportunity to lead the industry in providing localized content for all formats of programming,” Lorber continued, “however it is no secret that the telenovela genre continues to rank high amongst African viewer requests throughout the continent. That’s why there is so much demand for the localized product, and we’re convinced that nobody does it better than we do here at The Kitchen.”
According to DISCOP, “The African marketplace is now worth HALF A BILLION US DOLLARS in annual TV content sales, twice more than three years ago”. The Kitchen’s growth continues to emulate this growth, as new studios, staff and technology continue to expand and evolve with the expanding needs of its global clients.
The Kitchen recently announced the formation of a joint venture with Cisneros Media Distribution whereby 12 new recording studios will be constructed in Venezuela for the exclusive use of The Kitchen, for Latam Spanish dubbing. This will bring to 30, the total number of studios being operated by The Kitchen.
Ken Lorber, along with Deeny Kaplan, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing, will be on hand throughout DISCOP Africa.
