We’re proud to announce that one of Azimuth Soft’s largest customers, a privately-owned nationwide channel, has started broadcasting with closed caption insertion performed on our specialized Azimuth-TT videoservers.
In this workflow the Program feed is routed to the Azimuth-TT server from a 3rd party videoserver. The software running on the Azimuth-TT receives the ID of the currently playing media file from the same 3rd party vendor’s playout automation system, reads a subtitle file from a network share with a filename matching that ID, then inserts the subtitles into the pass-through feed. If no subtitles are available, a pre-configured message is displayed in compliance with the regulator’s demands.
The Teletext Suite solution deployed here includes advanced Teletext and Subtitle editing applications, their interface layouts and user experience designed with the industry’s best practices in mind. This familiarity allowed the broadcaster’s personnel to start working on their closed captions and teletext pages straight away, without a lengthy retraining period.
The simplicity of set-up, fully automatic operation with no required maintenance, and the reliability and security of the Linux operating system that powers the Azimuth-TT video servers allows for them to be employed even in the most mission-critical workflows of national broadcasters.
