Anvato Offers Broadcasters Full Compliance with FCC Closed Captions Regulations

Anvato enables closed captions for TV broadcasters on both Desktop and Mobile Devices

Mountain View, CA(08 Aug 2012)

Anvato Inc., the only video platform that combines live and on-demand video publishing, distribution and monetization in broadcast quality, today announced it released a full solution to enable closed captioning for live and on-demand video on both desktop and mobile devices.

Anvato allows TV broadcasters to acquire closed captions directly from broadcast and includes all the tools to present the closed captions in the right format to end users. The solution is not only compatible with both desktop and mobile devices, but also supports multiple languages.

Anvato captures video and closed captions at the broadcast source including direct decoding from HD-SDI signals. It saves captions as separate, editable meta-data files. Closed Captions are encoded to the proper format for each requesting device including DFXP, SMPTE-TT, SCC, SRT.

“We provide TV broadcasters the simplest yet the most powerful solution to comply with the new closed captions regulations,” says Alper Turgut, CEO of Anvato. “It is a one-stop-shop solution and takes less than an hour to install, and there is no upfront hardware cost to get started.”

If missing from the broadcast stream, captions can be manually uploaded through the Anvato Media Content Platform in more than 180 languages. When a file for a specific language is uploaded, the language becomes instantly available from the player’s closed caption menu for the viewers to select and play.

Closed Caption Search
“In-player closed captions search will revolutionize the way people navigate and consume video,” explains Alper Turgut.

The Anvato player allows viewers to jump to any scene inside a video just by performing a closed-captions search in the language of their choice. This unique feature allows viewers to easily find and access their favorite scenes in seconds.

Power Video Editing with Closed Caption Navigation
Anvato’s live capture editor allows users to browse captions and click on a specific word or segment of the dialogue. This instantly brings the video to the point where this word is pronounced. Video editors can navigate videos and create clips from relevant segment by browsing closed captions.

Broadcasters may contact Anvato to learn more about the solution. To see  a demonstration visit:
