A complete HD closed captioning and subtitling solution.
No additional captioning hardware required. No generation loss.

MacCaption and CaptionMaker software create HD closed captions files for users of Avid Media Composer 5.0, Symphony 5.0, and Newscutter 9.0, or later versions. You can create the Avid AAF file using either PC or Mac, and any AAF file can be used on either PC or Mac based Avid systems.

See our captioning comparison chart to find the configuration that’s right for you.

How it Works

Telestream software generates an Avid-native AAF file that contains HD closed captions formatted for Avid Media Composer. This file is simply dropped onto the "D Track" or data track. When you play the HD sequence out through your Avid Mojo DX or Nitris DX hardware, or export a MXF or AAF file from Media Composer, the output will contain the closed captions. Our software can also generate a line 21 overlay file used to add closed captions to SD video sequences.
