SoftNI Closed Captioning modules let you
encode and decode closed captions and metadata into/from the VANC and VBI.
The Closed Caption MultiEncoder module lets your Subtitler Suite™ encode closed
captions using the best HD and SD closed caption encoders. The CC-ENC module can
simultaneously encode several languages into the VANC and two languages into
line 21 of the VBI.
The Closed Caption Decoder™ module lets your Subtitler Suite™ recover closed
captions from the VANC and VBI and display them as high quality easy-to-read
subtitles, using analog or digital character generators and broadcast quality
professional video cards. This lets you take advantage of all of the features of
open subtitling, such as high resolution, proportional TrueType fonts, colors,
borders, backgrounds and other graphic elements, providing captions that are far
more pleasing to the viewers. The consumer version uses low-cost off-the-shelf
The Closed Caption Retriever™ module allows your Subtitler Suite™ to recover
EIA-708 and EIA-608 closed captions from a video program and save them into one
or several standard computer files (Word, ASCII/ ANSI). These files can then be
used for any of the other processes involved in subtitling, such as further
editing, formatting, styling and translation. The CC-RET module can assign time
codes to the recovered closed captions based on the computer's clock, or by
reading time code from an external video source.
