New for NAB is enhanced integration to Newsroom Computer System (NRCS) MOS integration
ENCO will showcase its enCaption family of automated closed captioning solutions at the 2018 NAB Show. New updates to ENCO’s latest enCaption4 system, strengthened through ENCO’s new patent for automated captioning, raise the bar for speed and accuracy in live captioning environments.
New for NAB is enhanced integration to Newsroom Computer System (NRCS) MOS integration. This improves accuracy by empowering enCaption4 to learn correct spellings from news scripts and rundowns prior to live newscasts, and without manual intervention. Additionally, enCaption4’s multi-speaker identification speaker eliminates crosstalk and other on-air confusion when multiple hosts and guests are contributing to live broadcasts. enCaption4 identifies speech from each speaker through dedicated microphones, and processes each speaker separately.
“Whether it’s deployed on-premises or as a cloud-based solution, enCaption4 is ready to go whenever the need for captioning arises, at a fraction the cost of live captioning services,” said Ken Frommert, president, ENCO. “It is by far the most powerful captioning solution available today, and is unrivaled across speed, accuracy and performance.”
Frommert adds that should broadcasters need to cut into a regularly scheduled program with breaking news or weather alerts, finding qualified live captioners to step in on short notice is often difficult to do. “Since closed captioning on broadcast TV is legally mandated, our customers remain in compliance and avoid costly penalties – all while offering better service to their hearing-impaired viewers,” he said. “This simply amplifies our unparalleled value proposition.”
