Nexidia has released Nexidia QC v2.3, the latest version of its software tool for automating quality control of closed captions, video description, and languages for broadcast and IP workflows. Nexidia QC v2.3 adds caption retiming, additional caption formats, and more languages to meet the needs of international broadcasters and media outlets that are facing increased caption regulations.
Nexidia QC v2.3 can now test for and repair out-of-sync captions due to drift. As part of Nexidia QC v2.3 QC's language identification function, it has an expanded library of languages and can now distinguish between dialects, such as Latin American Spanish versus Castilian Spanish.
The new release has added support for STL and EBU-TT caption formats, and also supports the iTunes Timed Text (ITT) format used for distribution to iTunes.
Nexidia QC v2.3 can also identify the language of the captions displayed on screen regardless of the audio track or any language metadata included in the caption file. At the same time, a spell-check function has been incorporated to test for the proper spelling of captions.
"We have added automated caption retiming for live captioned content to Nexidia QC, making it the first caption tool to automatically correct live caption-timing issues, ensuring that captions are synchronised with the speech in repurposed content,” said Drew Lanham, senior vice president and general manager of Nexidia's media and entertainment division. “Also, we are implementing improvements to address the specific needs of international broadcasters with broader support for languages and caption file formats.”
