Captioning, subtitling and localisation specialist Ai-Media is making its debut as an IBC exhibitor this year as the company steps up efforts to target non-English language broadcasters in Europe.
Currently, the company largely sells its products to broadcasters in the UK, US and Australia. It supports around 100 different languages, but primarily focuses on English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
James Ward, Chief Sales Officer at Ai-Media, also noted that Mandarin and Japanese are major growth areas.
According to Ward, live captioning has become a key focus area for the company, building on its heritage of captioning and subtitling services for the hard of hearing.
He also described Ai-Media as a “one-stop shop” for captioning services.
“We not only provide those services, but we also provide the technology and infrastructure that supports those services,” he said.
Ai-Media (the Ai stands for ‘access innovation’) was established in 2003. In May 2021, the company acquired EEG, a North American video and captioning technology company.
