Screen Subtitling Systems will supply HD and SD captioning systems to the Seven Network for its HD Channel, 7HD, in Australia.
Seven is updating its current system of SRU32 units, which have successfully provided subtitle services to Seven’s five SD services across Australia, with Screen’s Polistream captioning system. The new Screen equipment expands upon the capability of the previous system and enables Seven to provide DVB teletext captions to support all of its HD broadcast services. In addition, Screen’s technology provides Seven with the option to carry out live captioning for sports and news broadcasts.
The subtitling system from Screen will broadcast live captioning feeds from the Australian Caption Centre, repurposing current captions and playing out files when required. The new network will broadcast content throughout five regions covering Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
