AST has posted a new tutorial detailing its CaptionSync Video Encoding Service, which encodes either subtitles or open captions into your MOV, M4V, F4V or MP4 video files, and downloads an MV4 file. This format is compatible with a wide range of players including QuickTime, JW Player, Flowplayer, RealPlayer, VLC, iTunes as well as iOS devices such as iPad, iPhone, and iPod. The Video Encoding service ensures great accessibility and a broader audience. View the full tutorial on our How-To-Tutorials page.
The Video Encoding Service is very cost effective. Request a price sheet to get the full details.
AST’s Video Encoding takes caption files directly from CaptionSync and adds additional value by encoding the caption data back into the video for you. AST offers a number of different Video Encoding services:
Subtitled M4V Videos
Submit a MOV, M4V, or MP4 video for captioning and you can choose to get back an encoded M4V file with the captioning appearing in subtitle field (in addition, you will also receive all of the standard closed caption files of your choice).
Open Captioned Videos
Submit a MOV, M4V, or MP4 video for captioning and you can choose to get back an encoded M4V file with the captioning appearing as open captions underneath the video (in addition, you will also receive all of the standard closed caption files of your choice).
Digital NLE Captions
Encoding traditional D1 (720×486) tapestock such as Beta SP, digi-Beta, or DVCPro used to be a process that required expensive hardware or software. AST’s Digital NLE Captions allow you to submit your media electronically, post-process the caption files and receive a black line-21 .MOV caption file which you integrate into your NLE software such as Avid, Final Cut Pro or Premiere and print-to-tape.
