Wohler acquires closed-captioning technology via Europa Australia purchase
Wohler Technologies will complete the acquisition of Europa Australia by the end of the September. Led by Elio Deluca, the company specializes in closed-captioning and data insertion and extraction technologies.
Europa Australia was established in 1996 to provide cost-effective, high-end solutions for the broadcast industry. The closed-captioning processing technology developed by Europa Australia is compliant with CEA-608/708, the U.S. closed-captioning standard, and with OP-47, the Australian closed-captioning standard.
Wohler already has incorporated this technology into the HDCC-200A HD/SD-SDI dual-channel, closed-captioning encoder/decoder bridge.
