VITAC is the exclusive provider of offline captioning for prerecorded programming on over 25 television networks. Our 80+ captioners, all employee and US-based, are not just good transcribers and spellers. They’re expert captioners, masters of description, line breaks, timing, readability, sound effects, and common style rules that average viewers may not notice.
Like realtime, our offline captioning department is staffed 24/7, ensuring customers never have to sacrifice quality for quick turnaround. Customers are supported by a team of traffic coordinators, who receive and check all video before moving it into the production process. Our proprietary scheduling software tells us at any given minute where a program is in the production process, ensuring we meet our monthly metric of 99.9% on-time delivery within the hour requested.
All captioning is performed using our proprietary and constantly evolving captioning software. Managing the technology ourselves means that we’re able to create new deliverables at a moment’s notice – and we often do!
