Mediaproxy Integrates AI-Media’s LEXI Captioning And Transcription Tool Into LogServer

Mediaproxy has further expanded the capabilities and scope of its LogServer compliance monitoring system through integration with AI-Media Technologies’ recently launched LEXI Recorded self-service captioning and transcription platform.

This is the latest development in the ongoing partnership between Mediaproxy and fellow-Australian broadcast technology developer AI-Media. The closed caption specialist was originally a Mediaproxy customer, but the two companies have since been collaborating more closely, beginning by integrating LogServer with AI-Media's iCap cloud network.

Founded in Sydney in 2003 with the aim of making television programs more accessible to Deaf and Hard of Hearing viewers, AI-Media has developed a full range of captioning technologies to generate, distribute and display subtitles for a variety of broadcasting and streaming platforms. These include viewing systems and encoders, with its core offering being the LEXI AI-powered toolkit. Among its features are automatic captioning, translation and disaster recovery capabilities.

LEXI Recorded is the latest addition to this suite of tools and was launched in February this year. It is a cloud service designed to deliver fast turn-around captions for Video On Demand along with transcriptions and translations of broadcast output. Like LogServer, LEXI Recorded is file-based, which has allowed for easy integration of the two systems.

Mediaproxy announced at the 2024 NAB Show that LogServer is now able to work with LEXI Recorded, providing outputs from its logger/recorder that are taken into the AI-Media system for captioning, translation and transcription purposes.
