StreamGuys To Debut New SGrecast Transcription Features At IBC

News Image
StreamGuys is to showcase the new audio transcription features of its SGrecast live stream system for the first time in Europe at IBC 2018.

Powered by the patented enCaption4 cloud-based, automated captioning technology from ENCO, the new capabilities enable fast, effortless generation of accurate transcriptions and captions from recordings and uploaded files.

StreamGuys will co-exhibit with ENCO in stand 8.A59 at the show, taking place 14-18 September in Amsterdam.
 
The SaaS-based SGrecast offers broadcasters a comprehensive platform for recording live streams and transforming them into revenue-expanding side channels and podcasts. The new enhancements enable users to automatically generate transcriptions of new or existing recordings, and to caption pre-recorded, archived files for web and mobile streaming. The resulting captions can be exported as SRT, WebVTT or JSON files, while complete transcripts can be saved for later use. 
 
SGrecast's new transcription abilities bring benefits to both content producers and their audiences. The cloud-based solution's highly-granular search functionality can leverage the transcripts and captions to help operators find exactly the content they need in just seconds. Search precision is further empowered by enCaption4's high accuracy, made possible by ENCO's deep neural network approach to voice recognition. Individual speakers can also be identified and labelled to enhance subsequent searching. Content providers can effortlessly publish feature-rich media players with captions, bolstering accessibility for hearing-impaired viewers while also supporting multi-lingual applications.
 
SGrecast's enCaption-powered speech-to-text capabilities further deepen StreamGuys' already-extensive portfolio of podcast production, monetisation and management tools. In addition to the SGrecast platform, StreamGuys offers podcast hosting, dynamic advertising insertion and a robust, cloud-based delivery infrastructure that together form an end-to-end podcasting system spanning content creation through distribution.
 
StreamGuys director of technology Eduardo Martinez will also share insights and expertise with IBC conference-goers in the session 'Power of the podcast: How to reach new audiences through audio', taking place Friday, 14 September from 2:45pm to 3:30pm CEST. He will join expert co-panelists from The New York Times and ITV in exploring the latest podcasting business models and monetisation opportunities.
 
"The new automated transcription capabilities continue SGrecast's hallmarks of enabling customers to unlock the full potential of their podcast content while minimising manual effort and costs," said Mr Martinez. "ENCO's enCaption4 engine ensures that transcripts and captions are created with exceptional speed and accuracy, and combines with the robust content management and search features of SGrecast to help customers find and repurpose content with captions faster and more easily than ever before."
 
The integration of SGrecast and enCaption4 is the latest step in the strong partnership between StreamGuys and ENCO, which aims to seamlessly bring together streaming and automation workflows for the production and delivery of TV and radio programming including Visual Radio. StreamGuys multi-format encoding services help broadcasters deliver ENCO-driven program content to web, mobile and OTT devices, while SGrecast lets operators easily convert live streams into podcasts and launch new streams within ENCO's DAD (radio), MOM (TV) or Visual Radio systems.
