Comprompter to Unveil Caption Central

Comprompter News and Automation will unveil its new “Caption Central” for the first time at the 2009 NAB Show. Caption Central is designed to provide multiple captioning solutions for local broadcasters, which include NewsRoom Computer Systems (NRCS), Keyboard Entry, Live Voice, pre-recorded audio and pre-stored text files.

Caption Central is a standalone system that can output captioning for Comprompter’s NewsKing Newsroom system, or nearly any other newsroom system, the company said.

Caption Central performs a context comparison and tries to select the most appropriate word when a conflict arises over which spelling of that word occurs. The Audio In feature allows a live studio voice, like weather or sports, to be fed into Caption Central and instantly turns their unscripted words into captioned text.

“This is the most universal system of captioning that exists in the broadcast market today and we are proud to offer our fellow broadcasters the opportunity of really serving the hearing impaired community in the most complete and instantaneous way possible.” said Comprompter CEO, Ralph King.

Comprompter will also be showing its NewsKing and NewsFlow Complete at the show.

Comprompter will be at booth SU10802.
