Speaker: Giovanni Galvez
The North American standard for TV Broadcast, Internet streaming, and Social Media delivery of live video has used the CEA-608 protocol as a foundation with many limitations. This presentation discusses the various international standards of captioning/subtitling, the pitfalls there are when converting TV to internet captioning, and what other non-standard options have evolved as the demand for live streaming video becomes a household discussion around the globe. We will illustrate the biggest challenges of adding captioning and subtitling to live videos and explore solutions that are gaining popularity in typical video delivery workflows.

Based in New York, Galvez has over 20 years of experience in the closed captioning and subtitling field, broadcast TV, and Live Events.
