Provide required accessibility to live content for hard-of-hearing and deaf audiences while embracing inclusivity and localization in an effective and scalable way.
Deliver fully automated captions and translate them to multiple languages to make your broadcast available in new foreign language markets. SyncWords Live has been in production with large global broadcasters delivering translations reliably 24/7.
For Live OTT applications, SyncWords Live can automatically scale additional languages simultaneously without disturbing your existing media workflow. This means that expanding live video events to a global market is reachable with automation. No need for expensive captioning hardware.
The most popular way to deliver subtitles to social media is to burn them into the video. SyncWords Live can do it live in any language in order to bypass technical limitations of social media platforms. Send your burned in subtitles to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Vimeo.
Captioners connect to SyncWords Live as they would to any standard CC encoder—through an IP and Port assigned by the system. SyncWords Live then acts as a virtual encoder outputting translated text to either a remote encoder for live broadcast TV delivery, or directly to a live streaming platform, meaning it can be added to any existing live caption workflow.
SyncWords Live can also interface with existing hardware and software that is used every day by all the major broadcast networks and caption service companies. This includes CaptionMaker, Eclipse, and Stenograph software. Hardware encoder support includes Evertz, EEG, and Link Electronics via IP connection.
SyncWords Live can translate incoming captions to 100+ languages. All languages are available for delivery as live streams. A caption streaming text protocol allows support for all languages including ones using Asian and Cyrillic character sets. Glossaries can be added to specify translations for particular words and phrases.
We benchmarked realtime translation from English to Spanish in a broadcast environment by comparing SyncWords Live Translation solution versus human translators and CART captioners.

We are able to achieve an effective average latency of zero for OTT delivery. We achieve this by offsetting the delivery of captions and utilizing the inherent latency of the stream.
