Spafax announced on Monday that they will be moving their content production team from their current offices in Orange, California to a new, best-in-class HD post-production lab in Hollywood to better serve their global content delivery needs for the digital age.
By April 2015, all of Spafax’s US-based technical services will operate out of two buildings on the Sunset Gower Studios Lot, although the new studios will officially open on October 6, 2014.
The Hub will be home to a technical services team of 25 who will manage file delivery, editing, subtitling, captioning, and video and audio encoding and duplication for Spafax’s global clientele. This fully automated digital workflow facility, housed within “the heart of the World’s Content Capital,” according to Spafax CEO Niall McBain, also provides The Hub with convenient access to the area’s ample production amenities - including 23 stages and over 700,000 square feet of production support space, recording studios and viewing theaters.
The new facility will service Spafax’s 25+ major airline clients – including British Airways, Air Canada, Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific, among others – to efficiently program, license and deliver their IFE content to any platform including IFE, wireless, streaming, mobile and social media.
Sunset Gower Studios is Hollywood’s oldest independent film lot, and the original home of Columbia and Warner Bros. It currently houses the post production facility for Technicolor, along with numerous commercial, television and feature film productions.
Spafax’s client services, administration and agency teams will continue to be based in Orange, CA.
