Softel publishes subtitling, captioning workflow guide

Subtitling and Captioning in File-Based Workflows explains how to simplify the complexity of multilingual subtitling and captioning processes delivered across multiple channels and over an array of platforms.

With step-by-step practical guidance and two case studies from Turner UK and The Mill, the guide explains how feature-rich subtitling and captioning software can enhance productivity, while reducing operational costs within next-generation workflows.

The latest Softel Swift family of software provides solutions for creating subtitles and captions in SD, HD and 3D, supports most formats and languages, and transmits them over multiple platforms, including the web and mobile.

Sam Pemberton, Softel’s chief executive, commented: “With the proliferation of new platforms and pervasive content repurposing across regions and continents, broadcasters need to ensure their subtitling or captioning process is robust, reliable and efficient. This new guide concisely outlines the challenges and provides proven solutions that have delivered reduced costs and greatly increased efficiency for our customers.”
