Delivers HD Closed Captions and Subtitles to Museum Kiosks
MacCaption Player displays HD captioned video superior in
quality to Blu-ray®. Plus, it runs on reliable Mac computers,
and eliminates the need for complicated and expensive authoring
of disc media.
Video Quality Superior to Blu-ray®
MacCaption Player can output captioned and subtitled HD video
superior to that of Blu-ray® because of its capability to accept
video exported directly from a broadcast editing system, using
the video format that is native to the editing system, such as
Runs on Reliable and Energy Efficient Mac Computers
MacCaption Player software runs on a Mac mini
or any other newer model Mac computer. Mac computers such as the
Mac mini have earned the EPA’s Energy Star certification, which
will lower users’ energy bills.
No More Disc Media Authoring and Compression Fees
Blu-ray® and DVD® require
video compression, which degrades video quality. MacCaption
Player does not require video compression, resulting in higher
video quality whether you are displaying HD or SD video to the
public. Complicated and expensive authoring of disc media also
is not needed.
Wall/tabletop Interface Enables the Public to Display Captions and Switch Languages
Player software comes with a display controller that allows the
public to control the display of captions and subtitles.
Connecting the controller is simple, and uses standard cables
such as USB and HDMI. In most cases, no additional wiring is
necessary. On the other hand, public display controllers for Blu-ray®
players typically must be custom built.
Closed Captioning – It’s the Law!
The ADA (American’s with Disabilities
Act) requires that video shown in public accommodations such as
museums be accessible to the hard-of-hearing. Closed captioning
is a perfect way to meet this requirement.
