The workflow for live captioning is typically the same for both TV broadcast and live streaming. Social Media, CDNs, and streaming services have designed their mechanisms to support existing professional live captioning hardware. But this is a challenge for organizations that are required to provide closed captioning on their live streams for the first time. In addition, scalability is critical in live streaming for TV broadcasters and very difficult to do when captioning is needed.
Our new integrated live caption encoding solution is now part of Lightspeed Live Stream to help avoid the complexity and costs of going to baseband when inserting digital captions and provides a scalable, integrated, modern solution compatible with both standard court reporting and speech-to-text software.
