AWS Elemental MediaLive now supports the conversion of Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) bitmap and SCTE-27 image-based subtitles to WebVTT captions.
Previously, web and mobile video players have not been able to handle image-based subtitles, meaning content owners could not provide viewers with captions from image-based sources.
MediaLive now leverages optical character recognition (OCR) functionality, to convert image-based subtitles to WebVTT format.
AWS Elemental MediaLive is the company’s broadcast-grade live video processing service, which enables users to create high-quality live video streams for delivery to broadcast televisions and internet-connected multiscreen devices, like connected TVs, tablets, smartphones, and set-top boxes.
