And in greater detail, the nominees are…
iCap Falcon is a cloud-hosted service that adds closed captions in real-time to live RTMP or RTMPS streams. Falcon replaces traditional hardware encoders for direct-to-web live streaming workflows. The most valuable component of Falcon, however, is its interoperability; this solution is not bound to a single player or platform. Compatible with all major live streaming platforms, Falcon empowers companies to caption events, meetings, and live streams. To generate captions, Falcon can be used with either a professional human captioner or Lexi, EEG's automatic captioning service.
Lexi produces real-time captions in English, Spanish and French, at more than 90% accuracy. Released in 2017, Lexi uses Automatic Speech Recognition technology to add accessibility to VOD and live content. Lexi's Topic Model feature recognizes topics, immerses itself in distinctive vocabulary, and observes context by absorbing relevant web data unique to each implementation.
Winners will be announced at Streaming Media West, being held November 19-20 in Los Angeles.
