LAS VEGAS – NAB SHOW 2011 – BOOTH SL4511 – Tuesday, April 12, 2011. MOTU is demonstrating support for the closed caption features that will be included in the upcoming release of Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.
MOTU video interfaces will provide full support for Premiere Pro CS5.5’s closed captioning features. Users may attach closed captioning data to a sequence in the form of an industry-standard .scc file or a .mcc file generated by CPC’s MacCaption software. The MOTU video drivers will then allow the captions to be monitored both on-screen in Premiere Pro’s Program Monitor window, and also on an external television or caption-capable broadcast monitor, such as TVLogic’s LVM-243W. The Export to Tape command can then be used to generate a tape containing the video and closed caption data.
Both Standard Definition captions (based on the CEA-608 standard) and High Definition captions (CEA-708) are supported. Standard Definition captions are written to line 21, and can be monitored or exported via the composite, component, and SDI outputs of any MOTU video interface. Digital High Definition captions are written as VANC data on line 9 of the HD-SDI output.
Closed caption support will ship as a MOTU video interface driver update to be released concurrently with the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 update when it becomes available later this spring. SD captions will be supported across the entire MOTU video interface line. HD captions will be supported by the HDX-SDI video interface, with possible future support in the V4HD.
