Caption Display - Features
These systems are used in a variety of environments where it’s more convenient to have the closed captioning displayed outside of the normal on-screen viewing area.
Problems and Solutions
Problem: On-screen captioning obscures part of the picture. Many people feel that the aesthetics of the on-screen image are seriously compromised by the captions.
Solution: Our Closed Caption Display Systems keeps the video image clear by moving the closed captions off the screen. It works by pulling off the hidden closed-caption encoded onto a video signal and sending it to our easy-to-read LED displays.
Problem: Legibility problems occur with regular captioning. When the monitors are placed at a distance from the viewers, the captioning can become very difficult to read. There can also be line-of-sight problems with people in the front blocking the view of those behind them. Because of these shortcomings, closed captioning is sometimes turned off altogether.
Solution: The CD-2000 comes with highly visible matrix LED displays providing excellent visibility from a distance. The captioning systems can also be placed away from the video to provide much better visibility to all viewers.
Problem: Displaying multiple captions in different languages simultaneously.
Solution: The video loop through feature is standard on all of our systems and provided the ability to display multiple languages on separate displays providing a wider audience for your presentation.
