Closed Captioning Services
High Definition Closed Captioning
We have the capacity to make any HD video format closed captioning files, and deliver them either on tape or by ftp to the station or video server, or just the captioning files for you to use with your current editing software.
We are your one-stop closed captioning provider. When you call Impact Media for your captioning services, you will be getting quality services, at an affordable price. We can add roll up or pop on captioning, to your television program, infomercial, commercial, movie, outdoor show, promotional video, corporate training video, church program, or internet video. But wait, there's more. We can provide you with complete captioning packages that include both HD and SD formats, along with a captioning file for mastering to dvd or your web videos captioned any or all formats including captioning your YouTube videos.
We provide an accurate verbatim transcript of your program, to ensure that your message is being delivered to the deaf and hard of hearing accurately, along with meeting the FCC requirements for closed captioning. In addition we carefully calculate the captioning so that your on screen graphics or other pertinent information does not get cover up with the captioning text. We can print your program to the tape format of your choice, whether it is in HD or SD format, we also label your tape with your information, in accordance with each stations requirements. We ship your tape to the station and provide you with a tracking number.
Standard Definition Closed Captioning
We can provide you with any and every SD closed captioning to meet all of your needs, including all file based captioning for you to import into your editing software.
We can provide you with a quick turn around time on your captioning video projects.
Do you need your program v-chip compliant? No problem, we can encode your program with v-chip encoding while we are doing your closed captioning.
We do opening captioning too. This is a great feature of traveling displays, noisy areas, and it's great to draw people toward your video presentation. With open captioning the captions appear at all times, and can't be turned off, but at the same time they don't have to be turned on, so anyone can turn the play the video without knowing how to turn on the closed captioning.
Important information for broadcasters:
As of October 8, 2010 the Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 requires that all internet video that are broadcast on television must also be captioned on the web. Internet captioning or e-captioning is a different format from broadcast television. We can provide you with a closed captioned web video of your television program in any web video format for a small additional fee.
If you are airing your high definition programming on broadcast television, many stations require that you use a 4:3 title safe area for your graphics.
We do require a spec sheet from the TV stations to ensure that we are delivering your programs in accordance with each stations specifications, as they vary from station to station.
We Do It All.
In addition to providing closed captioning, we are also a post production (video editing) company. Why is that important? Perhaps you've sent your tape out to be captioned and your client calls with last minute changes and you're working on a deadline; with Impact Media doing your captioning you can make adjustments to your program and send us the changes through our ftp, and we'll replace the segments in your program for you. This save shipping multiple tapes, or uploading your entire program again and again, and taking the risk of missing a deadline.
Perhaps you are working with a media company and they want your show to have a different (Toll-Free) number on each tape so that they can track your viewer response by markets. We can work with you so that you only need to send us one tape and we will insert your (Toll-Free) numbers on each tape while we are captioning it. This save you a lot of extra time and expense by not having to provide a new master for each station or market area.
