Seven Network subtitles with Screen

Australia's Seven Network has awarded a contract to Screen Subtitling Systems to supply HD and SD captioning systems for its brand new HD Channel '7HD'.

Seven is updating its existing SRU32 units, with Screen's Polistream captioning system. The new Screen equipment delivers enhanced functionality and enables Seven to provide DVB Teletext captions to support all of its HD broadcast services. Polistream will also be able to handle any live captioning for sports and news applications.

The subtitling system from Screen will broadcast live captioning feeds from the Australian Caption Centre, repurposing current captions and playing out files as and when required. The new network will broadcast content over five regions covering Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
