    After using The Ark for many years, I can say there really isn’t a better service in or out of Soho. The Ark not only service the industry, they service the individual. From the huge multi-episode delivery to the smallest, most intricate QC. With their fast and efficient workflow and awareness of Industry fluctuations they stand head and shoulders above other facilities.

    Alex Powles: Distribution Manager – DRG

    CT Media have been working with The Ark for over three years for our post production and delivery needs. We represent a number of independent producers internationally and our biggest hurdle is ensuring that their content is technically high enough to meet international broadcast standards. The Ark work their magic in post, audio and delivery – bringing content up to spec. Although based in the USA we always send our material to The Ark. We trust Dan and his team 100% to get the job done at a fair price.
