Canal Overseas relies on Wohler closed-captioning encoder, decoder
Canal Overseas is using the PANORAMAdtv HDCC-200A HD/SD-SDI closed-captioning bridge to enable efficient handling and storage of World System Teletext (WST) subtitle data within an HD/SD playout infrastructure.
By encoding subtitles within an HD ingest workflow and subsequently decoding those subtitles back at the time of playout, this new card supports an efficient video ingest and playout workflow regardless of the availability of subtitles. It also adds to the bottom line by eliminating the need for duplication of SD and HD video storage.
Canal Overseas uses 11 HDCC-200A units to embed WST data in the HD-SDI signal (VANC) during ingest.
