ENCO comes to IBC with new features for its enCaption automated captioning systems, including a version designed for radio that is making its European debut.
The newest enCaption4 for TV and video offers significant accuracy improvements while shortening the delay between spoken words and the corresponding on-screen caption display. Augmenting this elevated accuracy, the new update expands the array of sources from which enCaption4 can learn new vocabulary and names. Already able to access newsroom computer system (NRCS) scripts and rundowns using the MOS protocol, enCaption4 now offers additional forms of newsroom integration. The system can also pull information such as sports team rosters and news articles from third-party websites.
ENCO will break new ground by bringing enCaption to the radio market, enabling hearing-impaired audiences to consume radio programming online or via OTT services. Using enCaption, radio broadcasters can display corresponding text in the ‘listener’s’ browser or app. This opens the door for hearing-impaired individuals to enjoy content such as talk radio that was previously inaccessible to them. Automated captioning also enables immediate creation of searchable transcripts that broadcasters can post alongside recorded audio clips, enhancing SEO for their websites while improving content discovery for site visitors.
Enco Systems Inc. is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 8.A59.
