For Brightcove Users

bclogoIn February of 2016, Brightcove released its newest video player Version 5.  This new Brightcove Player allows publishers to deliver 100% HTML5 to their audience.  Among other benefits, this means that there is complete independence from Flash.  In order to take advantage of this newer, faster technology, Brightcove requires WebVTT format for all new integrations.   Brightcove is also discontinuing support for other file formats and is encouraging clients to move to the WebVTT format before the end of 2017.

Dotsub supports the new Brightcove Player version 5 and provides the required WebVTT format for all new integrations. We will help you convert to the WebVTT format.  In order to convert the existing captions into the new format, you will need to supply Dotsub with the new Brightcove OAuth credentials from the Brightcove account administration panel.  When you are ready contact us via email at [email protected].

On the Dotsub side, we will republish to Brightcove all the links to your old caption and subtitle files in WebVTT format.  How long will it take? It’s usually a matter of a few minutes, but the length of time will depend on many factors such as volume and web traffic. The set-up is completely automated and does not require any human intervention.

If you have any question or concerns, please email [email protected].

Dell’s Video Team Chooses Dotsub

delllogo

In early 2014, Dell chose the Dotsub platform because it offered an excellent price/performance ratio and just the right tools and features needed for scaling video globally.  At this time, Dotsub joined the network of trusted vendors that enable Dell’s successful video globalization process.

As with most large companies, Dell’s forays into the world of video and video localization grew organically. Captioning and translation of video are essential to Dell’s competiveness in international markets. The growth of video globalization was largely driven by regional demand and availability of resources. The results were some inconsistencies, and fragmented translation processes.  Of particular concern, the translation process could delay coordinated world-wide product launches.

Today, Dell has configured a multi-vendor end-to-end solution of which Dotsub is an integral part. Dell’s Video Team manages these diverse systems creating a centralized video translation business process.  They work hand in hand with Dell’s dedicated localization team and make use of a complex translation management system and various tools to automate the process.  Ralph Jung, who is Video Localization Program Manager in the IT organization at Dell, agreed to spend some time with us discussing their operation.

Dell has a deep commitment to video, localizing over 250 e-commerce videos per year into 14 target languages.  Jung states, “This commitment requires a process that is scalable, cost-efficient and fast, and that still offers a high level of quality.”

The majority of the videos Dell produces are product launch videos that explain features, emphasize the design, and provide demonstrations addressing real-life situations. Sometimes the video may be targeted at the Enterprise audience:

while others are made for the Consumer marketplace.  


[The video will automatically show the captions in the language of the page. Just click on the CC button and then Options to change the language as required.]

In the past, it was a challenge to coordinate all required video translations, at times holding up a world-wide campaign launch. Thanks to Dotsub, stakeholders can review and make any edits and corrections to the video’s translation at any time, even after the video was published.  Jung says, “Because Dotsub is easy to use, our reviewers can make changes for themselves,” he continues, “and then Dotsub will automatically sync their changes with the online videos in real-time.”

We asked Jung what he sees as an upcoming challenge in video localization. He feels that embedded and on screen text that needs to be translated is a particular headache.  Currently, it requires a separate copy of the video for each language and a person who is working with a professional video editing system.  Jung told us, “I imagine a future system where these translations are stored and handled in a similar fashion as closed captions on Dotsub, with easy editing through a web interface, and the ability to make corrections at any time.”

Over time, the Video Team’s processes have become Dell’s centralized one-stop-shop for anyone who needs their videos translated with closed captions.  The smoothness and precision of the operation has saved money allowing them to add four new languages to Dell’s international arsenal.
