In the coming weeks there will be additional requirements to the existing FCC rules surrounding video description. Beginning July 1, 2015, per the 21st Century Communications and Video Act, video description requirements expand from the top 25 largest local affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox to the top 60 television markets for the top four broadcast networks.
CaptionMax has a simple, efficient workflow for creating high-quality description at the same time as your offline closed captions. Our entire process, from scriptwriting to voiceover to mixing a 5.1 surround sound audio file, is done entirely in-house, giving you unparalleled security for your assets.
Our team of describers creates a custom style guide for each series, compiling information about a program’s characters, locations, and show-specific terminology to assure consistency across episodes. Every artistic and technical phase of creating the description has a QC component to it so we can guarantee that our end product is outstanding.
