Testronic, Giant Interactive Rebrand to Giant Worldwide

Quality control, testing and localization services firm Testronic Labs acquired Giant Interactive in July.

Eight months later, the pairing is resulting in a rebrand: the group’s combined film and TV services has become Giant Worldwide, merging Testronic and Giant Interactive’s complementary services to address the demands of the digital content services market.

Giant Worldwide comprises 250 employees with locations in Los Angeles, New York, London, Warsaw, and Bucharest.

The combined entity will offer an expanded range of services, including platform delivery services, master QC, streaming app and software performance, physical disc authoring and QC, and a newly launched subtitle localization offering

“United under one banner, Giant Worldwide will streamline our service offerings to existing clients and allow us to continue to grow our range of services and expertise across our international teams,” said Jason Gish, president of Testronic film and TV.

Jeff Stabenau, president of Giant Interactive, added: “We are offering even more technical services and greater capacity with the addition of several new office locations, while promising the same client-focused approach and emphasis on superior customer service our clients depend on.”

Testronic’s video game services unit will keep the Testronic name and, along with Giant Worldwide, exist under the umbrella of parent company Catalis Group, a UK-headquartered global video game and entertainment group.
