Converting closed captions from CEA-608/708 SDI to WebVTT

Note

Feature is available from version 21.04 of Flussonic. Update your version of Flussonic to use this feature.

Flussonic can receive an SDI stream with CEA-608/708 closed captions (CC) and convert them to WebVTT format automatically. It is done to further transmit a transcoded stream via HLS, DASH, etc. without sacrificing closed captions.
Flussonic captures SDI streams with the help of Decklink SDI, Stream Labs SDI, AJA SDI and Magewell SDI cards.

For more information about working process with these cards, see: Decklink SDI, Stream Labs SDI, AJA SDI, Magewell SDI.
