(Pangbourne, England--March 21, 2011) Softel CEO Sam Pemberton will deliver a talk on "Captioning for Next Generation Broadcasting" at the 2011 NAB Broadcast Engineering Conference (BEC) on Sunday, April 10 at 10:30 a.m.

The paper will outline the key business challenges of generating new revenue streams and reducing operating costs against the background of transitioning to tapeless, upgrading to HD delivery, exploring multiplatform delivery and rolling out multilanguage feeds — scenarios faced by nearly every broadcaster today.

As the workflows proliferate and become globalized, captioning and subtitling provision needs to remain simple, yet extremely flexible, efficient and reliable while delivering ROI quickly. Pemberton will explain how broadcasters can transition their services to enable captioning and subtitling across multiple languages, in multiple formats and over multiple platforms, through tight integration with workflow and automation systems, and maintaining alignment with broadcast schedules.
