Automating Accurate Captioning of Live-Streamed Worship Services

In our previous blog, we discussed how churches and other houses of worship can better accommodate the public—especially those with hearing difficulties—by providing open and/or closed captioning on any video they produce.

As live video production becomes an increasingly dynamic and vibrant part of many media ministries, churches are taking creative control of their media outreach campaigns. In fact, some larger churches have media operations rivaling that of TV stations.

Their typical workflow begins with video cameras capturing the worship experience, including sermons, musical performances, and congregants. Multiple camera views are then switched in real-time using a video switcher, and this HD-SDI program output feeds local displays or a live video/web encoder for online streaming.

By adding a powerful automated captioning system like the ENCO enCaption directly into the existing SDI workflow, churches can now caption their own live video in real-time without the need for a human stenographer or captioning service. With 24/7/365 availability, enCaption can enrich inspirational videos such as the following:

• Open captioning of church services within worship centers

• Closed captioning live services for online streaming

• Captioning of video sermons that are searchable and accessible on demand

By placing the enCaption downstream of the switcher, the audio portion of that video signal is automatically converted to highly accurate captions. The video with embedded captions is then passed along to the web encoder for streaming to targeted web and social media sites.

Learn more about how enCaption can caption your live worship video accurately, automatically, and affordably.
