Captioning and Subtitling for any workflow

Synchronize your transcript to your video
To caption a video you need a transcript. Then you need to synchronize, or time stamp, the transcript so that each phrase is displayed at the right time. Our Auto Time Stamp (ATS) feature dramatically reduces the time it takes to time stamp your captions.

File-based Workflows
Use our products to embed closed captioning directly into files, including: MPEG-2 Program and Transport Streams, QuickTime, MCC, and more. Teletext OP-47/OP-42, CEA-608, and CEA-708 read and write are supported for MXF OP1a workflows.

Closed Captions for Web and Mobile
Our software provides the flexibility to create closed captions for all the popular web and mobile formats, including: Facebook, YouTube, Flash, QuickTime, iTunes, Vimeo and Windows Media. It also converts existing closed captions into web formats.

Caption support for Internet video players
MacCaption products now support all the new Internet captioning formats, including IMSC 1.0, WebVTT, SMPTE TT 2052, EBU-TT, and iTunes.iTT. This allows you to upload your video content with captions for playback on YouTube, Vimeo, iTunes, Android, Safari in iOS7, and Kindle Fire. Universities, government agencies, and corporate video departments can now comply with strict accessibility guidelines by using MacCaption to easily create FCC-compliant caption data and other Internet closed captioning video formats.

HD captioning and subtitling for video editors
CaptionMaker and MacCaption are the only software products that enable the HD closed captioning functions of Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer & Symphony, and Final Cut Pro. You can edit and output HD and SD closed captions to tape, file, disc, mobile devices, and the web. Subtitle overlay files are created with alpha channel graphics to provide compatibility with your editing workflow.

Harness the power of your video systems
Most popular NLE systems and capture cards accept Telestream encoded caption files and map the data to the proper location in the HD or SD video signal. We also support popular playout servers.

Assemble Edit and Automation
Extract closed captions from previously captioned video and re-export them to a variety of formats. Caption and subtitle data can automatically be conformed to match an edit decision list (EDL). Software also supports batch conversion and command line interface (CLI) scripting for automated workflows.

Live Broadcast and Live Webcast
Use our software with a hardware encoder to caption a live broadcast or to live text stream to a web site. Or, use it to caption live YouTube streaming video. Captions can be input via speech recognition software or stenograph.

DVD and Blu-Ray
CaptionMaker and MacCaption work with all professional authoring programs, allowing you to create closed captions and subtitles for DVD and subtitles for Blu-ray.

International Subtitling
Subtitling support includes burn-in to .MOV, Teletext OP-47/OP-42, and subtitle overlay exports to video editing and transcoding systems. In addition, CaptionMaker and MacCaption support standard subtitling text formats for conversion to modern OTT subtitling files. Our MacCaption system is excellent for subtitling in foreign languages and has support for custom fonts, drop shadows, and Japanese Ruby annotation formatting. Convert your subtitling project to iTunes iTT for international delivery.
