MacCaption + Matrox MXO2 Deliver EIA 708 HD Captions.

LAS VEGAS -- The wait for a HD-SDI closed captioning solution for non-linear editors and caption service companies is finally over. Matrox and CPC have co-developed an innovative solution that allows the MacCaption HD software to encode and decode HD captions to and from HD decks using the Matrox MXO2. This exciting new software will be introduced at the NAB Convention in Las Vegas at CPC's booth #SL-7615.

Improves Workflow and Lowers Captioning Cost

Matrox MXO2 and MacCaption users can now save both time and money by encoding HD captions directly on their video editing systems, without any additional hardware and with zero generation loss. It is no longer necessary to send HD master tapes to a separate deck-to-deck hardware caption encoding system. Existing closed captions are preserved during capture and print to tape operations, and the captions can be edited or re-purposed for multiple tape formats, optical disk delivery, and the web.

E-Captioning for Fast Delivery

Caption service companies will also greatly benefit from this new workflow. Similar to CPC's patented "black movie" method for SD captions, MacCaption generates a Matrox 4VANC captions file that is small enough to send by e-mail. Editors can then, without any captioning software or additional hardware, easily add this file to their timeline. When the non-linear editing system prints to tape, the MXO2 patent-pending technology takes this encoded caption data and translates it to EIA-708 closed captions through its HD-SDI output.

File Size and Format No Longer an Issue

Until now, encoding HD captions via software required up to 3 times the disk space of the original file. However, the Matrox 4VANC file takes less than 5 Megabytes per hour. Whether editing in full uncompressed HD, HDV, or any other codec, this file that carries the encoded captions can easily be archived locally or transferred over the internet to any MXO2 user.

About CPC - The Closed Captioning Software Leader

HD captioning with the Matrox MXO2 is the latest addition to CPC's industry-leading line of Macintosh and Windows closed captioning and subtitling software. Since releasing the first simultaneous closed captioning/teleprompting software in 1986, CPC has been the captioning and subtitling industry leader. CPC also operates an award winning captioning and subtitling service. For more information, please visit
