SVG SportsTech On Demand: EEG's John Voorheis on the Role of Falcon, Lexi in Live Stream Captioning

In an effort to keep the broadcast-technology community informed this spring, throughout April, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors discussing their latest product releases and company news. Our Ken Kerschbaumer sat down with John Voorheis, director, sales, EEG Enterprises, about the company’s efforts.

Even as meetings and events move online, closed captioning remains crucial. EEG Video offers solutions to make live streaming and online events possible. Falcon is EEG’s cloud-hosted SaaS streaming video solution. Falcon adds captions in real-time to live RTMP or RTMPS streams by receiving information from the streaming media encoder and delivering captions to streaming platforms. To caption audio in Falcon, customers can use a human captioner or Lexi, EEG’s automatic captioning service that delivers high-accuracy, low-latency captions in English, Spanish and French. Lexi supports on-demand ASR caption delivery through EEG products for both live and offline delivery.
