It’s that time of year, and we’re in the thick of it here at VITAC, making sure we’re keeping you up to date with captions, even if your bracket is a thing of the past as Wisconsin bested Villanova and as Duke was taken out by South Carolina. As the remaining teams are warming up for the round of 8, our realtime captioners are making sure they’ve got accurate dictionaries prepped full of every roster and statistic you might hear (or see). About the work, Chief Operations Officer and General Manager, Chuck Karlovits, said, “The Canonsburg office is captioning all of the March Madness coverage on broadcast television for TBS, TNT, and TruTV, and a second separate feed of those same games plus the games on Turner’s iStream web platform with a different set of captioners. That is a total Madness of 60 games this week and 269 total hours.”
Mad enough for you?
