QuickPlay support for closed captioning

January 18, 2013

QuickPlay Media, a provider of cloud-based managed service solutions for the distribution of premium media to IP-connected devices, has announced the availability of closed captioning support for its live and on demand multiscreen video solutions.

Using its cloud-based OpenVideo platform, QuickPlay ingests, extracts and encodes closed captioning data from a variety of video formats – enabling mobile TV service providers to integrate closed captioning into their premium mobile video services. Earlier this year, the FCC mandated that all episodic content delivered over IP networks must have closed captioning, under the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010.
