Closed Captioning Process


You will find that each captioning company's process and services differ, but here are two of the basic processes that you'll find at a company like Aberdeen Captioning:

THE “NLEdirect” (tapeless) PROCESS:

Client

  • creates a small digital video file and posts it to FTP site

Captioning Company

  • creates verbatim transcript
  • creates caption file (edit, sync and place text)
  • performs caption quality check
  • creates a black CC video file and emails the file to client

Client

  • adds the black CC video file to their project in their NLE system and lays the program to tape with closed captions

THE “TAPE” (standard) PROCESS:

Client

  • provides finalized master tape

Captioning Company

  • creates verbatim transcript
  • creates caption file (edit, sync and place text)
  • performs quality check of captions
  • creates a CC master
  • ships CC master tape(s) to client, to station, or to other location
