What are Continuous Caption Feeds?

The Continuous Caption Feeds platform is an essential tool for broadcasters and television stations that desire to harness their captions for web and mobile audiences, as well as create a knowledge repository. This feature is a great way for broadcasters to feed their captions continuously into Recapd where they are stored indefinitely. Information is a critical commodity for broadcasters, and using Recapd broadcasters can archive, retrieve and search through all countless hours of captions in one central location in a robust and secure manner.

Broadcasts, Captioner, Recapd Platform, Mobile Web and Archive

Built on cutting-edge technology: The core of Recapd uses a java-enabled platform to continuously capture Line 21 captions received from a provider, followed by encoding them to be web-readable. The platform has been built for providing high performance including scalability, reliability and robustness to ensure that we receive your captions 24x7.


A customer can search through captions, as well as securely retrieve captions by creating bookmarks. A bookmark is created by specifying a start and end time, thus retrieving captions for that time period. The captions contained in a bookmark can be edited and output in different formats ranging from a simple text file to time-stamped outputs like sami or srt.
