Aberdeen makes the delivery of long-form programming not only possible but practical! Our way of receiving clients' files, embedding closed captions into station-specific codecs, and transferring the finished file to stations around the globe is a system we call AberFast.
We have made exceptional quality the primary objective of AberFast and have built our transcoding platform and automation around maintaining and delivering the same image quality that our clients see on the monitors in their edit bays. As part of our setup process, we also provide broadcast consulting and post-production support so our clients' files are as professional as possible.
And because we were founded as a closed captioning company, we are experts in embedding caption data in various broadcast formats. When we first establish relationships with stations, we often hear that among some of the most common issues they run up against with producers is the captioning work.
Three of the most common are…
Since Aberdeen was founded as a closed-captioning company, AberFast has a significant edge in station deliverables – we can embed captions in the native codec of any station's play-server file of choice. By creating a custom file for each station, we limit the amount of encoding a digital master goes through before it hits the air, making the delivery of the highest quality programs possible.
Simplify versioning. Make programs unique to your target markets with unique phone numbers or addresses, region-specific spots, or updated event dates on legacy content. Just send us a single master file without a phone number and we can make this happen for all your deliverables. Aberfast will create a template for each station that receives your program that allows for a unique phone number to be placed into the program at one or multiple points.
Just another way we use technology to make your life easier. See more details at: our transcoding platform.
With safe and reliable transfers and data redundancy at every level, AberFast has become a proven provider of broadcast-ready video files to broadcasting outlets around the world. Our fast turnaround times for captioning and delivery ensure all files reach their stations on time. Multiple manual and software quality control stages in the AberFast process make certain every program delivered meets TV stations' high standards.
From edit to air… we'll get you there!
