Sign up today for our panel discussion, part of Social Media Week New York:
This panel will address some of the newest options for video captioning and translation services and issues of communications quality vs. speed vs. cost. What quality is “good enough” for social networks, education, corps., activists, politics, diplomacy? The qualities and risks of computerized “machined” audio to text captions and translations will be examined, as will crowd-sourced captioning and translation models; who is the crowd—general public, fans, employees, paid professionals—and how can translations enhance audience engagement? Distribution of multi-lingual video across all platforms, increasingly mobile, is a critical factor in reaching bigger audiences as is measuring ROI/SROI to make it worthwhile.
Hosted at the People & Society Hub at The Paley Center of Media on Friday, Feb 11 2011, from 12 PM to 2 PM
