Skylark Technology Enhances CC in SL Neo
Features stored or live capability
TORONTO, CANADA – Skylark Technology said it added new enhanced features to
the closed-captioning functions in its SL Neo channel-in-a-box. Skylark says
its SL Neo Series can now automatically convert on-the-fly closed-captioning
metadata for either SD or HD play-out.
Skylark says its system can store and play-out CC media content regardless of
whether the media content and metadata is imported via short or long-form
recording or file transfer. The SL Neo series also features live-manual CC data
entry. The CC metadata can also be exported as metadata within media content
files in SD-CEA-608 or HD-CEA-708 formats.
Skylark’s HD/SD NLE NewsCut editing system supports CC as well the graphics
system. The graphics system supports CC during design and play-out. If the
graphics design involves rolling video content with built-in CC metadata, the
Skylark system gives broadcasters the ability to select manually entered or
integrated CC metadata.
