Caption Conductor is a flexible IP-based real-time caption management system. Caption Conductor eliminates the need for aging captioning technology and connects your caption encoders with live captioners over IP by use of a simple web-based interface. It replaces old-school telephone lines and analog phone couplers with cutting-edge encrypted digital communications.
Caption Conductor enables captioners to obtain encrypted audio and (optionally) video directly from your program using either Overture™ RT LIVE (ORT) media playout servers - with low latency text for feature-rich closed captions and subtitles - or Evertz' 7825CCE-AUD-3G with audio-to-IP streaming.
For additional flexibility, station engineers are able to monitor live activity on current caption jobs and control all real-time captions from a single simple interface.
Caption Conductor's sophisticated design and flexibility allows broadcasters the ability to deploy a system either on-premise, over a public cloud or a hybrid of both. A pioneer in cloud-based solutions, Evertz has developed Caption Conductor's architecture with advanced capabilities, offering advantages that include reducing on-premise hardware requirements while reducing overall costs and facilitating the process of scaling up caption capabilities to meet growing demands.
