Broadcast captioning refers to the instant translation of the spoken word that is then encoded into a television signal or viewed on a monitor at a meeting or convention. Broadcast captioning makes video accessible and provides a time-to-text method to provide a substitute for the audio. Captions are designed to assume that the viewer cannot hear due to physical or spatial limitations.
How It Works?
Verbit's Broadcast Captioning uses RTMP technology to deliver video and audio content to our platform, which then gets processed for transcriptioning and captioning.
The end user, i.e. the student, gets redirected to a webpage wherein both the Zoom event and captions can be viewed.
The Zoom event in broadcast will be tailing the actual Zoom event by a few seconds, the delay is to allow the production of the captions and transcripts in sync to the broadcast, making the entire end user experience seamless.
Providing the RTMP is installed, live streaming will be enabled in the host's Zoom app.
For now, any participant can broadcast the media content and view the real-time transcript by clicking VIEW STREAM ON CUSTOM LIVE STREAMING.
