Introducing new Closed Caption creator tool and other captioning enhancements

We are pleased to announce that we will be releasing a closed captioning creator and editor tool that will allow media owners to manually create captions for their existing and new media files on the night of December 8, 2014.
Some of the features of the captioning tool are
  • Adjust delay time to captions (suitable while working with external caption files)
  • Ability to import existing captions (in SRT, TTML formats) created by external applications or services. The caption creator tool can then be used to edit captions and their timings.
  • Keyboard shortcuts to simplify the caption creation process
  • Import plain text transcripts and adjust start and end time for quicker creation of captions
  • The caption creator tool will automatically create WEBVTT caption format for showing captions on HTML5 player on mobile devices (phones, tablets)
  • Users can also provide caption text in different languages and can insert symbols with the provided onscreen multilingual keyboard
  • Export and download created captions.
  • Save drafts of captioning work to resume at a later time
Other enhancements related to Captions
  • The user will be able to not just toggle on or off captions but also be able to switching to captions in other languages (if they exist) on the Flash and HTML5 player
  • Ability to add existing captions from within LMS (Canvas, Blackboard, Sakai, Moodle etc)
  • The user will be able to not just toggle on or off captions but also be able to switching to captions in other languages (if they exist) on the Flash and HTML5 player

Maintenance Notification: November 2, 2014 from 6 AM to 8 AM


On Sunday, November 2, 2014, between 6 A.M. and 8 A.M., NJVID staff will be involved in extending the NJVID service infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and perform server configuration changes, DNS migrations and other work related to this extension.

This move to AWS for certain services will provide NJVID technical staff the ability to quickly scale up the service and provide agility to our infrastructure especially since our service and storage demand has seen a phenomenal increase in usage. We are confident that the AWS platform coupled with the NJEDge infrastructure will provide greater processing power, high availability, offer scalability on demand and will ultimately provide a superior end user experience.

Please note that during this time window, the NJVID service may be impacted in part or in full. In the event this maintenance activity does impact service, the possible outage duration should not exceed 30 minutes.

Please feel free to send an email to support@njvid.net if you have any questions regarding this email.

regards,
NJVID Staff
