ENCO Debuts New Captioning Encoder

It’s the first product resulting from its acquisition of DoCaption

ENCO has introduced a product resulting from its recent acquisition of DoCaption.

“The 1RU solution uses DoCaption’s proven existing architecture, fanless design and redundant power supplies to provide broadcasters with a cost-effective closed captioning encoder with modular options to support regional captioning and subtitling standards,” the company said.

“The 1RU captioning encoder inserts captions into live broadcasts from any live captioning source via existing captioning standards through an IP or serial connection. It can also integrate directly with ENCO’s own enCaption automated captioning system for a complete turnkey solution.”

At the IBC Show the company is also showing DoCaption’s existing software-defined FPGA-based ancillary data products for signal encoding, conversion, transcoding and monitoring. 

Also, ENCO has revamped its HTML5 browser front-end user interface for enCaption5, offering a streamlined interface. The design includes enhancements such as Calendar View for scheduling captioning events in addition to the existing List View option.

It updated enCaption software to enable deployment on Linux operating systems; the software is also deployable on Windows. 

“enCaption5 can now offer flexible live or file-based captioning and transcription that can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid on-prem/cloud workflow,” it said. “enCaption’s open API supports seamless integration with media asset management systems and third-party developers, even enabling white-label third-party services.”  The tool can create transcripts and add closed or open captions to live and pre-recorded content in 48 languages. 

And ENCO said enTranslate now supports 34 languages and is available fully on-premises or in the cloud. In live radio applications, enCaption creates speech data and sends it to ENCO’s enTranslate engine for translation.   

IBC Stand: 8.C73.
