SVG Venue Initiative White Paper Adds Section on In-Venue Closed Captioning

David Watts

Sports Video Group, in collaboration with EEG's Bill McLaughlin and other industry experts, have released a new section on in-venue closed captioning as part of their Venue Initiative White Paper. This unique resource will serve as a roadmap for venue operators seeking to build a compliant system and deliver quality live-event experiences to fans who are deaf and hard-of-hearing.

According to the SVG site, the Venue Initiative White Paper as a whole is "...a resource of peer-reviewed best-practice guidelines for venue owners, operators, developers, and architects" and "is intended to provide baseline information on broadcast, AV, RF, and more, including recommended minimum requirements for current day-to-day in-house operations that incorporate the needs of network broadcasters in covering events."
