Using a cutting-edge computational lin- guistics program, the ACE-Flex4 con- verts speech to text and sends that text out with captioning data, either by RS 232 (Serial) or TCP/IP. Designed for two through four-line roll-up captions, and compatible with most closed captioning encoders or devices, the ACE-Flex4 is ideal for high-volume, multi-channel closed captioning environments, like government entities with multiple con- current meetings that need to be cap- tioned, corporations captioning simulta- neous meetings, universities captioning up to four channels at the same time and other multi-user applications. The ACE-Flex4 accepts SDI/HD- SDI with embedded audio, balanced ana- log audio or balanced AES. Once a cap- tioning task is complete, the ACE-Flex4 can create the files of your choice, such as a caption file, subtitle file, time stamped transcript, a Word document, plain text document or a variety of other file types. The ACE-Flex4 is a 4RU server that is housed in your own studio. It is not a cloud-based system and does not require a connection to the internet, allowing for a secure on-premise captioning solution. For remote controlling of the device, the ACE-Flex4 has a web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) that contains an event scheduler and EPG functionality, allowing the user to use different audio OWC Unveils Mercury Helios 3S PCIe Card Expansion Chassis OWC recently announced the new OWC Mercury Helios 3S PCIe card expansion chassis for Thunderbolt 3-equipped Macs and PCs. It adds an external PCIe slot for quick and easy addition of pro-level PCIe cards, and its dual Thunderbolt 3 ports offers the ability to daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt peripherals. Now you can maximize your existing PCIe card investment or expand it, while enjoying the flexibility of adding profes- sional-class video production, transcod- ing, audio processing, data storage and high-speed network connectivity to your machine. The Mercury Helios 3S functions like a dock, allowing the use of a wide variety of dedicated PCIe cards. Capture incredibly high-quality audio with a PCIe audio card and then retask Helios 3S with a PCIe SSD card to edit and archive tracks.
