At the 2018 NAB Show, StreamGuys unveiled a preview of forthcoming audio transcription features in its SGrecast live stream recording and repurposing platform powered by ENCO’s enCaption4 cloud-based, automated captioning solution.
Introduced in 2016, the SGrecast became a simple way for broadcasters to transform live streams into revenue-expanding side channels and podcasts on the fly, with SGrecast Version 2.0 being unveiled at NAB. The integration with enCaption4 will allow broadcasters to generate automatic transcriptions of new recordings, or caption pre-recorded files that exist in the archives. Users will also have the power to export the resulting captioning files (SRT or VTT), and save transcripts of any selected media content for later use.
StreamGuys and ENCO announced a partnership last year, which is aimed at fostering a tighter integration of audio/video streaming and automation workflows for TV and Radio production and delivery, including Visual Radio. StreamGuys today provides multi-format encoding to deliver ENCO program content to web, mobile and OTT devices; and support creation and delivery of podcasts and side channels via its SGrecast software.
Using SGrecast, operators can also easily convert live streams into podcasts and launch new streams within ENCO DAD (radio), MOM (TV) or Visual Radio systems.
The integration of live and post-processed captioning into the company’s interoperable solutions brings further value to broadcasters aiming to better service streaming audiences, as well as provide searchable transcripts under one platform.
