Digital Nirvana Launches Captioning Service for Digital Videos

System can be used by schools, government orgs to address live or post captioning, subtitling

At the 2016 NAB Show, Digital Nirvana introduced a new closed-captioning service that is designed for those non-broadcast applications where closed captioning is needed — such as church services, corporate presentations, hospital video content or educational environments.

The closed-captioning service — part of the company’s Media Management platform that’s used for content creation, capture and delivery — can handle multiple SD and HD video formats and a wide range of caption file formats, the company said.

The service includes pop-on and roll-up captioning services for all technology platforms.

“Extending our services into the closed-captioning arena aligns with our company mission to deliver smart technologies that empower our customers,” said Hiren Hindocha, Digital Nirvana co-founder, president and CEO.

Offering captioning allows users to connect not only with those Americans with impaired hearing but also with those who don’t speak English as their primary language, Hindocha said.

This enterprise-level software has checkpoints to ensure content and caption quality and offers multi-format capability. The system can be coupled with Digital Nirvana’s in-house encoding capabilities to provide customized closed-captioning services for each customer, the company said.
