ReelSurfer and Automatic Sync Technologies (AST) are pleased to announce a partnership to facilitate transcription and captioning of video assets from within ReelSurfer’s web-based video search platform. ReelSurfer is now fully integrated with AST’s CaptionSync service, allowing ReelSurfer users to caption videos with just a few mouse clicks. This new feature allows ReelSurfer users to make their video content accessible and compliant with state and federal accessibility laws, as well as enable a powerful search capability for viewers.
The ReelSurfer platform also allows viewers to rapidly find and make clips from existing videos, making it a simple matter to find, create, and organize tailored content from your video archive.
“Captioning offers so many more benefits beyond accessibility; this partnership offers many of our users a simple path to realize the powerful benefits of video search that captioning can enable,” said Brent Robertson, SVP of Marketing at Automatic Sync Technologies.
Neil Joglekar, Co-Founder of ReelSurfer adds, “Video captions are a key enabler for the search functionality that the ReelSurfer platform offers; this important addition to the ReelSurfer platform offers our users a simple and efficient workflow to get their videos captioned.”

AST’s CaptionSync service offers an advanced workflow to expedite the process of creating caption files for a wide variety of media types, delivered though broadcast, the web or on physical media. Although the workflow is automated, AST delivers high quality transcription using human transcription agents, not speech recognition engines. AST’s captioning services are being used by almost 2,000 users today to deliver accessible rich media.
