YouTube is to open a studio in India.
The YouTube Space studio in Mumbai will be the seventh in the world, following the launches of other studios in New York, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, London, Berlin and Tokyo.
YouTube has explained how it will work, saying: “Through this collaboration, India’s popular up-and-coming YouTube creators, as well as their students, will have free access to Whistling Woods’ studios, high-end audio, visual and editing equipment, in addition to training programs, workshops and community events.”
The Indian online community is growing quickly, with around 350 million Indians having internet access today and an estimated 500 million expected to be online by 2017.
YouTube hopes that the studio will encourage and stimulate India’s flourishing online video community.
Its other studios have attracted over 100,000 users, hosted over 800 events and produced over 11,000 videos.
