Facility Dedicated to Engineering, Product Development, and System Integration Drives Innovation for the Company
New York, NY – November 8, 2016 – Today, AbelCine announced the opening of a 12,500 sq ft Development Center located in Brooklyn’s Industry City. The new facility is home to the company’s expanding Engineering, Product Development, and Integration units and will serve as a hub of innovation within the company.

This will enable the company to take on more complex assignments, and collaborate on integration projects utilizing emerging imaging and media technologies.
