Post Production

Also known as offline captioning, post-production captioning is used for programs that have already been created in a media format, such as television series, commercials, DVDs, online videos, and feature-length films. It is the most accurate type of captioning available, reflecting high-quality aesthetics and delivering the maximum level of precision. LNS has industry-standard production software in-house, ensuring that our captions meet the demands of the newest technologies.

LNS Captioning is an approved vendor for the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP).

As more and more people watch web video content in noisy places – mass transit, airplanes, coffee shops, etc. – people rely on the captions to know what’s being said with the volume turned down. Make sure your captions reflect the quality of your video, even if it’s only 2 minutes long.

LNS can caption your Flash, Windows Media, Quicktime, Real Player, Vimeo or YouTubeTM web videos so you can reach those in the deaf and hard of hearing community and viewers who use captions as a reading literacy tool.

On October 8, 2010, President Obama signed the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) into law. This act requires any television program already aired to be captioned when posted online. LNS can help you comply with this law. Ask us for more information.

Captions and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Captioning your web videos can also help your website’s search engine optimization (SEO) ranking. Providing transcripts and captions for your web videos allows search engines to pick up on otherwise hidden keywords, thereby directing potential viewers to your website.

LNS ensures that you can reach all of your audience, including those who speak English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, Italian, and a variety of other languages.

Just send us your video and we’ll take care of the rest. Our post-production team creates a timed English transcription template of your video and sends it over to our certified expert translators. Once translated, we’ll import the file, put it through our strict Quality Control Process to ensure complete accuracy, and send it back to you.

If you have a source video that you need to distribute in a variety of formats – for training DVDs, websites, handheld devices, etc. – hardcoded (embedded) subtitles might be the best solution for you. Check out our FAQs to learn more about this service.

Your words, in any language, are in great hands.

There are over 10 million visually impaired people in the United States who miss the important visual aspects of video and multimedia products. Audio description (sometimes called “video description”) is an audio narration track that plays along with the regular audio track.

If you need an audio description track for your product, LNS will work with our audio description partners to create scripts from your video and work with voice talent to describe on-screen action for those who are unable to see what’s taking place.
