Kartoon Studios Teams Up with Deepdub to Enhance Dubbing Process

Kartoon Studios has announced a new partnership with Tel Aviv-based Deepdub to speed up the dubbing process for its FAST channel content. The collaboration will focus on producing Castilian Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Arabic, and Italian versions of Kartoon Channel! content.

Deepdub, known for its AI-powered text-to-speech technology, claims that their innovative approach can make the dubbing process 70% faster and 50% cheaper compared to traditional methods. This technology is set to revolutionize the industry by reducing the time and cost associated with translation, recording new dialogue, and ensuring synchronization with the animation.

With a track record of dubbing over 1,000 hours of content for platforms like Netflix, Peacock, and YouTube, Deepdub has established itself as a leader in the field. Major streaming services like Hulu have also recognized the value of Deepdub’s services, enlisting them to create an English version of the popular Portugese-language series Vanda.

By partnering with Deepdub, Kartoon Studios aims to expand the reach of its animated and live-action content to new markets in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. The FAST service will feature Kartoon Studios originals such as Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten, Shaq’s Garage, and Rainbow Rangers, as well as beloved acquisitions like Peppa Pig, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss.

In line with their commitment to leveraging AI technology for production efficiency, Kartoon Studios is developing a proprietary toolkit called Gadget A.I. This toolkit will consolidate various tools to streamline production processes, ultimately saving time and resources.

This partnership between Kartoon Studios and Deepdub signals a significant step forward in the entertainment industry, showcasing the potential of AI technology to enhance content creation and distribution.
