The DVD/Blu-ray Workflow

e-Captioning workflow

2. Caption Depot transcribes (unless you provide the transcript) & creates caption/subtitle files for your video file
3. a time stamped caption/subtitle file will be emailed to you and you will embed the captions to your video yourself.
4. or, Caption Depot will embed the captions/subtiles to your video.

e-Captioning can be used for virtually all captioning tasks. This includes HD/SD tape, DVD, all web formats & Blu-ray subtitles.


DVD/Blu-ray Workflow

Caption Depot's cutting edge software is able to subtitle and closed caption both DVD and Blu-ray. Blu-ray inherently does not support captions, but Caption Depot supports Blu-ray subtitles (SDH).

What You Will Need
The first thing you need in order to get something closed captioned is a transcript. There are several ways to create one, and Caption Depot also offers a transcription service. Check rates for details. You will also need a proxy movie - a small video such as Quicktime (H.264 320x240) is sufficient to make caption files. Check proxy_video for details. Once Caption Depot has both these items, we can start the closed captioning process.

What You Get From Us
After the captioning process is complete, we will email you a small .scc (for caption) or a subtitle file for your specific need.

How To Use The Caption File
Depending on your workflow, the caption file may be used in many different ways. Caption Depot will help you implement the captions and subtitle quickly and painlessly..
