MediaPlatform Adds EEG Captioning to Its Webcasting Platform
MediaPlatform has released a suite of managed captioning services integrated with the MediaPlatform Broadcaster live webcasting platform.
The services are provided by MediaPlatform's Broadcast Services team via a new partnership with closed captioning technology provider EEG Video. MediaPlatform will leverage EEG's cloud-hosted Falcon live stream captioning service, Lexi automated live captioning capabilities, and Lexi with iCap Translate, which provides automated, affordable translation into nearly 20 major languages and allows viewers to choose from up to four language drop downs during live webcasts.
"We are pleased to now include fully managed and integrated live closed captioning capabilities as part of our webcast services offering," said Shaun Brown, general manager of MediaPlatform Broadcast Services, in a statement. "Via close collaboration with EEG, our customers can choose from a variety of captioning services which we now provide as a seamless part of their hosted event services. In one step, they can be fully compliant with ADA guidelines and improve inclusiveness through our integrated multilingual captioning offering."
