Broadcast Captioning [Offline]
When it comes to prerecorded programming, there’s not a format or turnaround request we haven’t delivered (99.9% on-time delivery).
We know what your network or customer needs – be it a caption file, D5 HD or downconverted anamorphic Digital Beta or any of a hundred more deliverables.
Last year, VITAC’s offline captioning department delivered over 35,000 caption assets to government agencies, corporations, individual producers, studios, and just about every television network: from A&E to FSN, NBC to The Weather Channel. Ask us - we’ll know what you need and provide it with our acclaimed capacity, turnaround, and accuracy.
Format and Style
When you send us your project, we’ll ask you what format you’d like to send and receive and also what style of captioning you’d prefer. See our examples above and let us know what you need.
