Worldnow's Multi Device Video Player SDK Has Enhanced Closed Captioning for the Hearing Impaired

Stuart Parkerson Stuart Parkerson in Programming Thursday, June 5, 2014

Worldnow has announced a multi-device video player compliant with all aspects of the latest FCC requirements to provide enhanced closed captioning for all of its clients, including the hearing impaired.

The SDK offers full ad serving capabilities, analytics integration, and social sharing tools. It allows users to view customize closed captions, and then save these customizations on both a browser and app basis. The closed captioning data is displayed in sync with Worldnow's video-on-demand (VOD) and live stream platforms offering users controlled custom display options including the ability to change font, font color, font transparency, background color and window color as well as change text behavior such as size, character styling, beveling and alignment. 

Worldnow's new multi-device video player can be downloaded by users to provide a native app experience. Once downloaded, users can view all Worldnow supported video through the player anytime they visit a mobile web site or application. With Worldnow's SDK, the multi-device video player can also be integrated with third party applications and mobile sites that play Worldnow video.

Worldnow’s solution automatically ingests caption data from SD and HD-SDI on-air signals to display VOD, live streams and closed captioning data. The new multi-device video player platform can support all video for desktop, mobile web (HTML5 and OSMF/Flash) and native apps.  The platform offers the standard HLS format for playback for iOS and Android.
