VITAC’s in-house encode team offers flawless caption encoding to nearly every video format, no matter the video size. We use industry-leading workflow software to ensure all videos are analyzed, encoded, and delivered with quick turnarounds and assured video quality.

Digital Delivery of Broadcast Quality Video:
