Red Bee Media will be showcasing Live Automatic Captioning in real time at NAB Show 2019. Using leading Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology by Speechmatics, the 24-hour online news stream from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) will be captioned live on the Red Bee Media stand. The solution is part of a three-month trial with the ABC exploring a new cost-effective way of making digital news content more accessible to their viewers. Red Bee Media, Speechmatics and the ABC will introduce the solution during a networking event on stand SU1620, Tuesday April 9th, 16:30 (Pacific Time) at NAB.

Red Bee Media is using its Subito platform together with ASR technology from Speechmatics, to introduce the media industry’s most accurate Live Automated Captioning services. The ABC is using the solution to explore possibilities in making online news content more accessible during a service simulation over three months, which will be showcased live in real time on the Red Bee Media stand at NAB.

"We are excited to be showcasing our solution in real time to the media industry at NAB, especially with live streamed news content from a high-profile customer such as the ABC. Working with Speechmatics, we have created a standard setting service that makes live automatic captioning more accurate and cost-effective and ultimately making more content accessible.”
