TM SYSTEMS INTROS “TRANSTATION CC™” 
LIGHTWEIGHT CLOSED CAPTIONING PREPARATION MODULE

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FEBRUARY 5, 2003

Miami/Los Angeles: TM SYSTEMS, has introduced its first Closed Caption Preparation module, the “TRANSTATION CC”ä, a lightweight, non-linear system, that has been integrated into the existing Emmy Award Winning TM SYSTEMS language translation, dubbing and subtitling technology.

TM SYSTEMS has timed the introduction of the industry’s first lightweight system to fully meet the impending FCC regulations demanding Closed Captioning capability on every television set by the year 2004. Subtitles are intended for hearing audiences. Closed Captions however, are for hearing-impaired audiences, and include the written descriptions of all sounds, i.e. a door slams, he huffs and puffs, and the crash was loud. It is a broadcast feature that can be turned on or off selectively.

The introduction of the TM SYSTEMS “TRANSTATION CC”ä is extremely timely in that it allows captioners to be more productive, more flexible and more mobile from the onset. Most of the individual users already work from home, with this system offering the same unprecedented mobility and familiar Microsoft Word capabilities that all of the TM SYSTEMS software modules now offer.

The deadline set by the FCC affects only TV sets in use throughout the United States, and networks, studios and distributors are already scrambling to get the massive task completed efficiently, with great consistency, and on time. The “TRANSTATION CCä” will expedite that process immediately, ensuring the same high levels of excellence that brought the freshman software developer its first Technical Emmy nod “year one” (2002).

The “TRANSTATION CCä” offers the same time and cost savings, along with the increased efficiency and consistency of the original four-module TM SYSTEMS language localization system, including: the PrepStationä, the TranStationä, the DubStationä and the SubStationä.

Already in use in several Los Angeles facilities, Media Captions has been using the “TRANSTATION CCä” for nearly a month now, with tremendous results;

“This is the first time we’ve entered the world of closed captioning,” Media Captions president Oscar Sanin explained. “The clients who we had been doing subtitling for, on the TM SYSTEMS TranStationä are already predicting that their need for Closed Captioning preparation will be even greater. Although we’ve purchased the “CC” as an add-on to our existing system, I’ve already dedicated one of our TranStationsä solely to Closed Captioning. I’m ready to purchase additional systems now because the demand is there!”

TM SYSTEMS will introduce and showcase its “TRANSTATION CCä” preparation module at April’s NAB Convention in Las Vegas, from April 5-10, at the company’s hospitality suite located at The Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. The fully integrated, Emmy Award Winning language localization system will also be demonstrated. To arrange for a demonstration time please call Carolina at (305) 535-6373. TM SYSTEMS offices are located in Miami, Los Angeles and Caracas.
