Dubai Studio City (DSC) at TECOM Business Parks is among the free zone areas in the emirate which offers an excellent talent pool and commercial opportunities in a dynamic business environment.

The community, which targets companies in the production and broadcast fields, is currently housing 288 active production and film work ventures in the region.

DSC has four low-rise buildings and a 15-storey tower with a large floor area for rent or lease. Crops of broadcast boutiques are also available along with independent small commercial offices within clustered buildings.

The customized business community has recording studios, commercial offices and sound stages where broadcasting and production outfits are housed under one roof. Digital distribution of content is highly managed by a satellite uplink for networking opportunities.

A wide assortment of broadcast services for media companies including consulting, equipment, systems integration, managed services, network rollout and more are available within the DSC. It also allows new filmmakers craft their next blockbuster with a customized production support like casting, modern devices and studio rentals, crewing and even catering. Specialized services are also offered to music and entertainment producers for promotion and distribution.

However, investors are now urged to develop hotels, leisure and entertainment facilities such as malls, cinemas and museums, sound stages and even residential complexes in the area.

The Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone Authority (DTMFZA), which manages DSC, is the head of registration and business establishment for interested companies who would like to expand their business within the park.
