Surrey-based SysMedia will be debuting its new SDR7 DVB subtitle inserter and transcoder. The unit uses the established Teletext subtitling protocols and can also extract Teletext subtitles from an analogue video signal and convert them into the equivalent DVB subtitles.
SysMedia has pointed to an increasing amount of legislation relating to subtitling provision – the UK’s Ofcom, for example, sets quotas for all access services.
The SDR7 is designed to complement existing Teletext-based subtitling systems.
