The VSI Group announced the expansion of its Latin American operations with the majority acquisition of dubbing, subtitling and media services facility Vox Mundi, based in São Paulo, Brazil.
Vox Mundi was founded in 1999, with a focus on localising content into Portuguese for Brazil, one of the world’s most important dubbing territories. The company owns and operates an extensive facility, covering 1000 square meters, complete with eight recording and six mixing rooms (including an impressive theatrical room), as well as a Foley suite and several HD edit suites, making it one of the largest and most prominent studios in Brazil.
Recognised both internationally and locally for its high quality, large capacity and exceptional customer service, Vox Mundi serves the major OTT platforms as a preferred partner, as well clients such as Discovery Networks, NBCU and Globosat. Its dubbing credits include “Planet Earth,” “Deadliest Catch,” “Gold Rush,” “Doki,” “Creative Galaxy,” “Hi-5,” “Backyardigans,” “Victoria,” “Killjoys,” “Ninjago,” and “Lego Friends,” as well as many of the best-known international series and movies for the major global streaming platforms.
The Vox Mundi team, led by CEO Armando Torres Jr. and Valvênio Martins will continue to manage operations, providing continuity to clients and further strengthening the VSI Group’s regional and global presence.
The combination of Vox Mundi with VSI Civisa (the largest dubbing facility in Argentina) and VSI Mexico City, makes VSI the only global vendor covering the entire Latin American market, with its own studios in both Brazil and Latin American Spanish-speaking territories. As part of VSI’s expanding operations in South America, Vox Mundi joins the VSI Group’s network of 25 existing facilities spread throughout the EMEA region and North America.
“I am proud to welcome Armando, Valvênio and the rest of the Vox Mundi team into the VSI family. This move is a natural next step, following years of close cooperation and friendship between us. Throughout our partnership so far, we have been impressed by the consistent quality of their output and exceptional reliability in what is often a challenging local environment, not to mention their unrivalled creative and technical expertise in sound recording and mixing,” commented Norman Dawood, Managing Director of the VSI Group.
Armando Torres Jr., Joint CEO of Vox Mundi, said: “Vox Mundi has always had an unremitting quest for the growth and development of its services, therefore we could not be more enthusiastic about this partnership. We know VSI is a great company in all territories and being able to exchange knowledge and expertise can only enhance our work”.
Valvênio Martins, Joint CEO of Vox Mundi, added: “Since Vox Mundi was founded, we have spared no effort to make the company efficient and focused on the future. I’m sure that this partnership with VSI, a solid and respected global company, is another big step in this direction, opening new horizons in Brazil and abroad”.
