Convert & Conform

Deliver closed captioning in more than 30 different formats

Convert Files

Convert closed caption and subtitle files to more than 30 different supported formats. Custom presets and profiles are also available.

Correct Caption Drift

Automatically offset timecodes to match the video or manually set an offset of your choice. Stretch and shrink the timecode of closed caption events to match the video.

Segmentation & Conform

Segment closed caption files to match edits made to the video. Insert blank frames to ensure a minimum frame-gap between caption events for platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Automatic QC & Alignment Checks

Automatically identify files with errors

Content QC

Custom style guides ensure closed caption files meet the standards set by you. Verify that captions have the correct reading rate, maximum line length, and more. Automatic Format and Timing options help ensure that the closed caption file content is within spec.

Technical QC

Check a caption file's technical metadata to ensure it conforms to your set standards. For example, ensure the timecode information is in the correct format or that the SOM is set correctly. QC options vary based on the file format.

Automatic Alignment Check

Provide both the caption file and proxy video to determine a sync value based on the timecodes in the file. Trigger a workflow based on the sync value being below a certain threshold.
