MUMBAI: Prime Focus has announced the launch of its new facility in Chandigarh to be dedicated for the 2D to 3D stereoscopic conversion job.

The facility will be connected to the company‘s global digital pipeline that connects India to North America and the UK.

The 50,000 sq ft studio that opens on 25 December will hold 3000 artistes dedicated to working on global projects. 
With the opening of the facility, Prime Focus will have its tenth studio. It already has its operations in Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Goa and Mumbai.

Says Prime Focus co-founder and chief creative director (India) Merzin Tavaria, "Our new facility in Chandigarh is a major expansion of our View-D 2D to stereo 3D conversion capacity.
