How to use TVU Transcriber/CC in TVU Channel

TVU Channel allows you to use the TVU Transcriber feature using two methods to include closed captions in your channel output.

To set up TVU Transcriber from the Playout tab:

When you turn on the Closed Captions slider in the Playout window, TVU Channel will auto-detect any closed captions in the source feed and pass them along to the output.

  1. In the Playout window, turn the closed captions on by clicking the slider to the right.
  2. Turn the closed captions off by clicking the slider to the left.

Contact TVU to add our Transcriber service to your Channel:

Transcriber uses the TVU MediaMind AI engine to transcribe speech to text in real-time and therefore, can be used for sources with no existing closed captions, such as live events.

  1. If you have purchased the Transcriber service, you can switch to it by going to the Workbench page and selecting Settings for a channel.
  2. Scroll down to the Advanced Settings section and expand the Closed Captions menu. Click the checkbox to Enable VTT Caption Insertion.
  3. Click Save to store your changes.
