Alta is the answer for any broadcaster planning closed captioning / subtitling in IP video production environments. The virtualized technology connects these modern workflows to the iCap Network - making live captioning/subtitling a seamless and natural part of your programming. Alta powers your application with 24/7 connectivity to thousands of iCap certified captioners across the globe. Additionally, SCTE-35 Regionalization and Ad Triggering Digital Program Insertion cues can be both injected into transport streams as well as fully read and analyzed. Supports USA / EU / UK captioning and subtitling standards.
Two Product Modes - Each VM is configured for processing either MPEG Transport Streams or SMPTE 2110 uncompressed IP video. The SMPTE 2110 Alta VM supports PTP, NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 Connection Management, and the JT-NM TR-1001 "Full Stack" specification.
Seamless Transitioning - With Alta, modern IP and legacy SDI workflows are unified under the same iCap Cloud - allowing a seamless transition from hardware-driven caption insertion.
Flexible Deployment - Deployed as a standalone virtual machine on VirtualBox, Cisco, or Microsoft Controllers. The technology is also available as a software library for custom integration.
Software-Driven Control - Controlled through a web browser interface or via scripting automation tools.
SCTE-35 Insertion Component - A licensed add-on for injecting SCTE-35 program insertion cues directly into MPEG transport streams (trigger with any commercial or custom trigger management software using the SCTE-104 protocol standard over the network).
SCTE-35 Full Decoding and Logging - Don't miss valuable ad opportunities! All SCTE-35 triggers from incoming streams are timestamped and logged to disk for future inspection, with a complete message parser and API access to the raw data.
*The SCTE-35 broadcast standard allow broadcasters to place real-time messages into their video stream with a wide range of essential signals for distributors, including when to insert local advertisements into programming, archiving/repurposing restrictions, and indexing information.
