Mediaset Manages Closed Captions on Advertising with Etere13 January 2022
Italy’s biggest private broadcaster keeps to espouse Etere, now in its latest Closed Captioning in Advertising technology.
Etere delivers a next-gen closed captions software for the creation, management, burning, playout, and conversion of subtitles, captions, and other text services for advertisements at Mediaset, one of the largest commercial broadcasters in Italy. Mediaset is an established customer of Etere and the decade-long collaboration has seen the incorporation of Etere Ecosystem across production units at the station and the progressive transformation to a more efficient operation.
Central to the design of this project is the flexibility to insert and manage multi-language closed captions and subtitles for different platforms easily. With Etere subtitling and closed captions, station operators can create subtitles for videos in multi-languages and multi-platforms, search by metadata, and share edits in real-time, all on an integrated software interface. This includes the insertion and management of closed captions and subtitles for OTT advertisements through OTT delivery platforms with the automatic sending and syncing of all the information needed to create the best OTT experience.
The solution supports a move towards a software-defined technology with less reliance on hardware. Station operators can insert live captions, open captions, and closed captions including ARIB and Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) via ETX inserter. Additionally, Etere makes it easy for broadcasters to monitor and verify all captions before playout to ensure compliance with closed captioning laws. With its real-time connectivity to the centralized Media Asset Management database, all edits will be automatically updated instantly.
