Time Coding and Time Stamping
Time coded transcription requires some amount of expertise which is in abundance at Transcriptionwave. Our specialized service for the industry includes transcription for documentary films, interviews, television, talk shows, podcasts, sermons as also reality TV.
Based on customer requests for transcriptions, we can insert a visible time code or time stamp marking the beginning and approximately every 30 seconds thereafter. For example, in interviews time code will mark the beginning of an answer, followed by every 30 seconds into the length of the response.
Only full continuities offer frame accurate time code and if the footage is unstructured as in reality TV, the time code will be inserted every 30 seconds. The term 'full continuity' transcript will imply a precise detailed cut-by-cut transcription that has the entire dialog, music, cues, credits, on screen graphics, scene descriptions, time code and feet or frame as applicable, a time code spotting is carried out on a cut-by-cut basis or for each line of dialog as desired. Time code invariably does not cover questions asked in interviews, but only the given answers.
Our preferred medium of transcription will be a DVD rather than a VHS. We also offer time coding from audio cassettes and digital audio files such as MP3 or WAV that have audible time code. Time stamps can also be provided in place of time code. Time stamping relates only to the head of the counter in the given master tape, starting with 0:00:00. Accurate time stamping is a basic requirement for adding captions and subtitles to the video.
You can avail of our free trial offer of five minutes of audio/video which can be uploaded to our server for sample transcription without any strings attached. We will respond immediately and only after you are totally satisfied with our quality output you need to entrust us the full assignment, which will be delivered to you error-free within surprisingly fast turnaround time and at affordable costs.
