VSI are pleased to announce the addition of a new Creative Services team to the Dutch operation of the Group, VSI Amsterdam. The new department complements existing creative services teams in London, Paris and Cairo, and has been brought about through the take-over of the dubbing and editing activities of leading post-production company Hoek & Sonépouse.
With over 50 years of experience, Hoek & Sonépouse is one of the most well-known post-production houses operating in the Netherlands, with a well-established presence in the Dutch broadcast marketplace.
The agreement allows VSI Amsterdam to expand its service array beyond audio-visual localisation to offer a truly end-to-end reversioning solution for the Dutch market.
Additional services now offered include online finishing or offline editing, conversions, compositing and animation, promo creation and reversioning, and motion graphics.
Ron van Broekhoven, Director of VSI’s Dutch office, sees significant advantages for VSI’s existing Dutch clients, stating:
“At VSI, we know how to localise, but we always want to achieve more. Our clients want to stand out from the crowd, so we are constantly evolving to meet their needs. We are fully equipped to help them achieve their aims with our in-house creative teams assisting them throughout the entire production process.”
This latest development follows VSI’s 2015 acquisition of a significant stake in leading Dutch dubbing company, Wim Pel Productions (WPP.) After extensive consultations with clients, the dubbing services of H&S will be transferred through to WPP, where the quality of service is unrivalled in the Dutch market.
VSI Amsterdam’s Commercial Manager, Martin Hoek, added:
“We have worked extensively with H&S so that their existing clients can expect no changes to the high level of service they currently receive, whilst also benefitting from VSI’s extensive global presence and array of localisation services.”
VSI is committed to providing an unrivalled level of quality, regardless of language or service, and this latest acquisition further cements the Group’s capability to offer all-in-one solutions to our clients.
