Fully automated subtitle playout
STC is a fully automated subtitle playout transmission control system for up to 24 channels. STC controls the playout of subtitles for each channel through a Subtitle Transmission Unit, STU, which is multilingual playout units for DVB, Teletext, In-vision etc. STC interfaces to SAM for automatic extraction of subtitle files from the archive. It also interfaces to most station automation systems and for those not yet interfaced Cavena will provide the protocol to the automation vendor. STC is capable of connecting to multiple automation systems.
STC can import playlist files in different formats from planning and scheduling systems like Focus, Mindport, Pilat and others. Alternatively STC can receive events from the automation interface.
STC controls start/stop of subtitles for each channel, STC allows for subtitling also of interstitials. Redundancy switching of STU is fully automatic including set-up of correct configuration for the redundancy unit.
Monitor in a web browser
STC operators can override any channel at any time. Events can be started or stopped. Events can be added or even loaded straight from disk or network. Using the internal STC web server, monitoring of the subtitle system can take place from remote computers via network or modem. Any standard web browser can be used by a client to monitor status on all channels and interfaced systems, including logs.
STC runs on Windows XP/Vista/7/Server 2003/Server 2008
