Take 1 To Open New Office In Connecticut

News Image
Broadcast metadata and transcription specialist, Take 1, have registered as a limited liability company (LLC) in the state of Connecticut and will open a new office in Stamford later this month.

The East Coast operation will be the company’s third base in the Americas, in addition to offices in Chile and a presence in Los Angeles.

Take 1 has a 20-year heritage providing transcription, translation and localisation services to the global broadcast industry. Founded in England, the company has been operating in the Americas for the last ten years, working with clients including NBC Universal, ITV America, Discovery Channel, High Noon, truTV and National Geographic. A unique aspect of their US service is their ability to provide overnight turnarounds, enabled by the fact that the company has staff based across the world, working in multiple time zones.

Take 1 Media LLC will serve the Connecticut industry of over 1200 media-related businesses which include ESPN, NBC Sports Group, A&E Television Networks, World Wrestling Entertainment and - arguably the largest independent non-scripted producer in the U.S – ITV America. Under the Connecticut Digital Media and Motion Picture Tax Credit Scheme, eligible local companies using Take 1 will be able to claim tax credits of up to 30 percent on qualifying services.

"Stamford is the ideal location for our new offices as it is strategically located close to New York and has become quite a media hub thanks to the state’s tax credit scheme," said Take 1 CEO, Louise Tapia. "We're looking forward to providing new and existing East Coast clients with a local service that benefits from Take 1's international footprint."
