iCap Falcon: Add Captions to Your Live Stream


Falcon, EEG’s cloud-hosted service, adds closed captions in realtime to your live RTMP or RTMPS streams in just a few steps. Falcon, which runs on the cloud and is hosted by EEG, receives information from the streaming media encoder (such as OBS, Elemental Live, and Wirecast) and delivers closed captions to all major streaming platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Wowza, and LiveStream. Let’s walk through how Falcon delivers captions. To begin, you must have a Falcon subscription on eegcloud.tv. Your live video source goes through the streaming media encoder and is uplinked to Falcon through an RTMP or RTMPS stream. Your program audio is then captioned, either by a live captioner or by Lexi, EEG’s automatic captioning service. Live caption data is returned to Falcon right away and embedded into the stream. Captions are then immediately forwarded to your streaming platforms. By the way, you can stream to multiple platforms at once. Captions can be viewed in players on webpages and mobile devices, as well as VOD recordings. This process does not re-encode your video, is entirely private, and only adds one second of latency. Falcon is the optimal solution for education and e-learning, government and corporate meetings, entertainment and events, independent productions, caption service providers looking to offer a new service, and more. At $400 to activate and $99 per month, Falcon is the easier, more affordable way to caption your live content. To create an account or learn more, visit eegent.com/falcon.
