Dynamic Captioning offers prerecorded (offline) captioning services in styles and formats to meet your timeline and budget. We’ve produced thousands of hours of offline captions for prerecorded television and web-based programming and commercials, feature films and corporate video presentations.
What is Offline Captioning?
Styles We Offer
Captions can be prepared in several different styles.
- Placed Pop-On Captions: Captions are synchronized to the programming, and placed to visually indicate the speakers. They are timed and placed to synchronize with the program. Pop-on captions look similar to subtitling and can be positioned anywhere on the screen to help indicate who is speaking, or formatted to indicate “off-screen” dialog or sound effects.
- Stationary Pop-On Captions: Captions are centered at the bottom of the screen with speaker changes noted by a dash.
- Roll-Up Captions: Captions scroll onto the screen in a continuous flow and use chevrons (“>>”) to denote speaker changes.
Offline Caption Delivery
Dynamic Captioning supports multiple workflow options primarily digital file based media. We can deliver industry-standard caption data files to your systems, as well as directly encoding your media files. Although videotape is pretty anachronistic, we still support video encoding to Digital Betacam and HD-Cam, should you desire. When you send us your project, we’ll ask you what format you’d like to send and receive and also what style of captioning you’d prefer.
