Digital Nirvana has unveiled Trance, a new Cloud-based closed captioning and metadata enhancement solution with an integrated and automated speech-to-text (STT) engine.
Trance includes advanced STT capabilities that enable the solution to generate automatic, multilingual transcripts for every work item within the application. Automated STT transcript generation delivers productivity improvements ranging from 60 to 97 per cent, plus 40 per cent gain in workflow efficiency compared to conventional desktop applications.
The solution also centralises workflows such as job allocation, caption edits, role assignment, report generation and status monitoring for streamlined project management. The browser-based UI is said to speed up the process of reviewing STT content, while the Cloud-based architecture helps users access content from anywhere and eliminates the need for individual software installs and updates.
“Trance is the latest addition to Digital Nirvana’s lineup of smart solutions for media organisations, designed to decrease costs and increase the productivity of in-house teams by orders of magnitude,” said Russell Wise, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Digital Nirvana.
“Honed over two decades, Digital Nirvana’s service offering for closed captioning, metadata generation and transcription delivers the industry’s most accurate closed captions with the fastest turnarounds. With Trance, all of the features that have empowered our internal teams are now available in a closed captioning platform that is highly reliable, accurate, cost-effective and easy to use,” he added.
