CCW 2015: EEG To Show Virtual Caption Encoder for Web Streaming
EEG will exhibit advanced closed captioning solutions for online content creators, captioning providers, and postproduction professionals at CCW. On display will be EEG’s recently launched Falcon Web-Streaming Caption Encoder. A virtual caption encoder available through EEG Cloud Services, Falcon provides an efficient and cost-effective captioning solution to any content creator offering live online content.
With Falcon Streaming Caption Encoder, users will benefit from on-demand usage-pricing for sending live captions via EEG’s iCap Secure Realtime Captioning System directly to popular Web video hosting services. Falcon is compatible with YouTube Live Events, VideoLinq, UVault, and any system running Wowza Streaming Engine.
Falcon is ideal for applications including news, sporting events, e-learning classrooms, corporate webinars, government facilities, and more. Completely cloud-powered, Falcon allows live content producers to connect to transcriptionists through iCap and route captions straight to the web-video server, eliminating the need for a hardware closed caption encoder entirely. Through iCap, Falcon users may choose from a network of thousands of national, regional, and independent professional live captioners to meet their specific event requirements and budget.
EEG will host a live Webinar about Falcon, “Captioning Live Streaming Video with EEG Falcon Software,” from 2-3 PM EST on Thursday, November 19. Registration is free – visit here for full details.
Also available for demonstrations at CCW is Scribe, EEG’s new standalone professional caption editing tool. It is the first tool to provide full secure integration with Courier, EEG’s secure, cloud-driven offline captioning network, enabling transcribers and editors to stream content as a non-transferable proxy from the cloud.
With Scribe, captioners can rapidly create a complete timed transcription from any media asset or Courier proxy, embed those captions into their master file, or even upload the captions for instant delivery to a registered client with a single click through the Courier network. Scribe is a modern, cloud-connected, captioning solution for creating captions from scratch or repurposing live captioned programming and clips – an essential tool for a wide range of post-production facilities, near-to-air content creators, and Web video editors.
