This is not required just yet from the FCC on straight to the web live sports productions, but good to see they are doing it! http://sportsvideo.org/main/blog/2015/08/harvard-bolsters-control-room-to-handle-dual-productions-invests-in-closed-captioning/#sthash.KmwNoUIF.dpuf #closedcaptioning
Construction in the athletic department at Harvard University certainly shows signs of growth as the Crimson have completed renovations on its centralized control room that will now allow for the department’s video production team to produce multiple events from the same space.

Homicide and verbicide - that is, violent treatment of a word with fatal results to its legitimate meaning, which is its life - are alike forbidden." - Oliver Wendell Holmes. Our Word of the Week was coined by Oliver Wendell Holmes in 1858 and popularized by English author C.S. Lewis. It literally means "the murder of a word"! #LanguageFacts

Whether you've encountered its unmistakable white text on black background at the gym, in a bar, or on the couch, you're familiar with closed captioning. Which made its network debut 35 years ago.
When it came to their ultra-modern video with both interviews & fantastic animations, PlayStation asked us to translate & provide Spanish captions for their work.
