MPEG-2 to MPEG-2 encoding– Upload your program to our secure FTP server.

We send the verbatim-captioned, 508-compliant file to you through our FTP server. Your viewers will be pleased, and you’ll have more room left in your budget. The encoding process takes only as long as your program’s TRT, and a flat encoding rate of just $50 per file now applies for new customers! Standard Offline turnaround time is three days for up to three hours of video. Flat rate does not include caption prep. 2. Other format to MPEG-2 encoding– Deliver any video format to VITAC via mail or FTP server. We create a verbatim 100% accurate caption file.
