This broadcast standard 1RU caption encoder supports iCap™ right out of the box (basic account included with purchase). Simply authorize your caption service provider on the iCap Admin website, and then plug and play! Captioners receive encrypted audio directly from your program, and return low-latency text for feature-rich CEA-708 (USA) or OP-47 (Australia/Europe) closed captions and subtitles.
With a standard broadband connection, iCap eliminates the outdated need for a pair of phone lines per channel (or expensive satellite equipment) for both broadcasters and captioners.
As a cloud service - iCap ensures a smooth transition to virtual and cloud-based architectures in the future with no concerns about captioning. EEG’s virtual encoding products such as iCap Alta are currently connecting emerging OTT delivery and IP production technologies into the same interoperable network.
iCap’s administrative cloud lets broadcasters and authorized transcription agencies monitor, add, change, or remove users and encoders from their account. Broadcasters can view captioner activity and retrieve connection logs on any encoder in the chain remotely from a web browser.
iCap is more than broadcast television captioning. Route incoming captions to scoreboards, mobile devices, web streaming services anywhere with a host of available modules accessed through the encoder interface.
