OOONA, a provider of professional management and production facilities for the media localisation industry, will be showcasing at IBC 2023 a new application programming interface (API) providing additional functionality to its range of online-accessible support services. The new API is designed to check caption and subtitle files quickly and accurately at the point of ingest, during post production and prior to delivery.
Alex Yoffe, Product Manager at OOONA, said, “We have developed the API in response to requests from clients who want to accelerate the process of content inspection when they get files from vendors or at pre-export.
“It performs critical checks and generates a text-based report which can be stored for reference or sent to a client along with the file. This is especially useful in ingest and dispatch suites where time is often at a premium.
“It also ensures that post-production staff members accessing the files are alerted to critical information requiring their attention.”
Describing the new API as a “powerful new addition” to the range of services OOONA offers, Wayne Garb, OOONA Co-Founder & CEO, added, “It dramatically reduces the number of files that need sending for human QC. That in turn gives QC staff the time to focus on files with real issues.
“The API provides details of what to look for instead of having to trawl through large numbers of valid files.”View the range of Ooona’s professional management and production tools for the media localisation industry at booth 3.C69 at IBC 2023, which is taking place from 15 to 18 September at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.
