Dec 9, 2022. If you have been binging on beautifully photographed Korean movies and series lately, you may have been guessing which lenses were at work. To support one of the most vibrant film industries in the world, ZEISS and Saeki P&C announced the opening of a new ZEISS Authorized Cine Service Center in Seoul, Korea.
This is the fourth facility in the world equipped with genuine ZEISS measurement instruments and test equipment. Lenses brought to the Service Center will undergo the same level of care as if they were at the ZEISS Headquarters’ service department.
All members of the service staff at the new facility in Seoul are are fully certified. They have trained at ZEISS HQ in Oberkochen, Germany or in Seoul by ZEISS personnel. The result is that ZEISS cine lens users can benefit from this regional support by avoiding significantly longer shipping to and from Germany along with accompanying customs processes.
Setting up a new full-service repair facility in Seoul was made possible in cooperation with Saeki P&C, the long-time partner of ZEISS in Korea. Saeki P&C has been a major supporter of the Korean film industry. Now, Saeki P&C will be also supporting the industry with proper and prompt lens repairs and maintenance for rental houses and owners.
“We are thrilled to open a factory-level service facility in the heart of Seoul’s imaging district. This enables us to reach customers more directly and respond to their technical requests in a timely manner, minimizing the downtime of equipment,” said Courtney Lee, Vice President of Saeki P&C.
The ZEISS/Saeki Authorized Cine Service Center accepts any repair or maintenance of ZEISS cinema lenses from all around Asia.
