SCREEN SUBTITLING LAUNCH BDL TELEPROMPTER INTERFACE

IN PARTNERSHIP with BDL Autoscript, Screen Subtitling Systems have launched an interface to BDL’s teleprompter technology to provide high quality subtitles direct from a teleprompter source.
Marketed under the PoliPrompt banner, the application links the teleprompter data source to the subtitling system over the network using an Active X control creating a live subtitle feed directly from the prompter output.
Ideally suited for newsroom application, PoliPrompt allows the simple integration of subtitles into the newsroom. It has a number of configurable options such as format of text to be captioned, including scroll, and wide ranges of languages are available.
Chris Woods, Managing Director of Screen Subtitling, said: "BDL Autoscript have been a great company to work with and PoliPrompt, our joint output, is a hugely important development for the newsroom. ‘Live’ subtitling for this fast moving environment is now a reality. PoliPrompt is low cost, needs no extra space and is very easy to install. Initial interest in PoliPrompt has been very good and I am sure that its ease of use will mean that every newsroom will want one.” (CD)
