Web and IP Captioning
Accessibility doesn’t have to suffer when video meets the Internet. VITAC makes captioning web-based content as simple as broadcast captioning and offers many creative solutions for the FCC’s IP Captioning Mandates.
We can help you pick the solution that enables your whole audience to access your live webcast. Our live web captioning solution may be customized to work with a proprietary solution or integrated into existing providers, including WebEx™, Adobe Connect Pro™, Google Hangout™ or Sonic Foundry™ streaming.
LIVE CAPTIONS DELIVERED VIA IP
VITAC was the first captioning company to offer tailored-made, secure Internet Protocol (IP) captioning solutions using the latest in endpoint equipment and encryption schemas. We have worked closely for many years with many encoder manufacturers to fine-tune captioning interfaces for both serial/POTS and IP. We have also worked at length with serial server developers to design specific protocols that work in the world of captioning. Contact us to learn more about live captioning delivered via IP.

Full-length programming and clips of programming captioned live on TV must be captioned when delivered via IP, per the FCC. As a full-service, 24/7 company, VITAC offers multiple solutions for quick turnaround web-ready files to match your video.

- Searchable: Accurate VITAC captions will connect people with your video and improve Search Engine Optimization (SEO) results.
- Clear: Accurate captions clarify your message – bad audio doesn’t matter if you have good captions.
VITAC has all of the answers for captioning and full encoding services - whether your video is a ten-hour seminar or a two-minute music video, or delivered via YouTube, iTunes or a proprietary web-player. Contact us today.
PRE-RECORDED TV PROGRAMMING AND CLIPS
Is your captioned video being distributed full-length or in clips via IP – that is, on-demand, on your website, Amazon, ITunes™, Netflix™ or other online video service? FCC regulations require this video be captioned in all of the above formats, and more. At VITAC, we’ve developed proprietary solutions to easily conform our caption files to multiple deliverables and formats quickly and easily – from commercial removal to edited content, from frame rate changes to multi-platform delivery.
