EL SEGUNDO, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
ZOO Digital (ZOO), the provider of workflow management software and services for creative media production, is pleased to announce that it has launched its new video subtitling service, ZOOsubs, following extensive development and testing. ZOOsubs was created in response to demand from major customers after the success of ZOO’s other workflow management systems within their organizations.
ZOOsubs is a cloud-based SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) workflow solution that supports the preparation, review and approval of subtitles for filmed and TV entertainment. The system is designed to allow the preparation and adaptation of subtitle information across all platforms, i.e. DVD, Blu-ray, Electronic Sell Through (EST), Video on Demand and broadcast. As well as creating subtitling for new feature film and TV material, it also enables the conversion of subtitles from existing materials to other platforms, such as from DVD to digital media suitable for distribution via iTunes®.
The software has been designed to give producers greater ownership of the subtitling process. By using the same secure, web based platform as ZOO’s other workflow tools, content owners can have greater control throughout the project – working with their preferred translators, ensuring greater quality control and reduced time to market. ZOOsubs has already been adopted by a number of ZOO’s existing clients.
Gordon Doran, President of ZOO, commented: “We’ve been delighted with the initial response to this new product. The fact that our customers came to us for this service shows their trust and commitment to our existing workflow automation tools and their growing importance within our clients’ organizations. ZOOsubs represents the first viable alternative to the industry standard labor and time intensive methods used for the management of subtitling and reduce client costs while providing them with greater quality assurance.”
