CPC, Manzanita partner on EIA-708 closed captioning

Computer Prompting & Captioning (CPC) and Manzanita Systems have partnered to deliver MPEG-2 HD closed captioning for broadcast.

CPC’s MacCaption-HD closed captioning software now interfaces seamlessly with all three Manzanita software multiplexers (MP2TSMS, MP2TSMM and MP2TSME) to generate a transport stream file that contains EIA-708 closed captioning. This functionality is important because an increasing number of TV broadcasters demand post production houses deliver MPEG-2 transport stream files instead of traditional high-definition tape masters.

Strict FCC broadcast regulations require these HD transport stream files to have both EIA-608 and EIA-708 closed captions for the hearing impaired. (EIA-708 is the HD/DTV captioning protocol; EIA-608 was the closed captioning protocol prior to HD).

MacCaption-HD also allows TV stations to check MPEG-2 transport streams for both 708 and 608 captions before they air a show.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
