Deep Captioning Industry Expertise
All the Tech You Need in One Place
Portland Trail Blazers revolutionizes captioning with AI-powered technology
The Trail Blazers previously used live human captioners to provide accessibility for its game coverage. However, its technical team was spending significant time managing captioning resources, and the cost of human captions soon exceeded its production budget.
The Trail Blazers saved significant time and money with an end-to-end live captioning solution that combined our AI-powered LEXI automatic captions with AI-Media’s Encoder Pro SDI encoder. LEXI delivered up to 98% caption accuracy while also decreasing per-hour costs, while Encoder Pro streamlined workflows and ensured low-latency captions.

Frequently Asked Questions
We offer a comprehensive range of on-premises, virtualized and cloud encoders covering SDI, IP, RTMP/S and 4K. Our most popular encoders include:
- Alta: A virtualized, API-powered IP video encoder that saves time and reduces costs with next-gen workflows.
- Encode Pro: An HD-SDI encoder trusted by major TV networks worldwide, offering low-cost, low-latency caption display.
- Encode 4K: A native 12G encoder that allows you to flexiIbly work with broadcast, live stream and in-room spaces while encoding in 4K or HD-SDI.
- Falcon: A budget-friendly cloud encoder that makes it easy to add captions to RTMP/S streams.
The CCMatch delay parameter allows our IP caption encoder users to match video and audio with live captions with perfect synchronization to the end viewer. CCMatch also aids in production and clipping by making sure live captions are contained completely within a segment, without overhang from programming into commercial blocks.
Our SDI and IP captioning encoders are suitable for broadcast TV in the USA (in CEA-708 Standard), or in DVB regions like the UK, Australia, and the EU (in OP-47/DVB Teletext standard.)
