Video Transcription Questions

A virtual program transcript, containing dialog and time codes, helps both the producers and networks that intend to broadcast the contents in finished form. It will also be the basic script for all dubbing exercises into various languages as required.
We commonly receive video transcription for a wide range of subjects: from motion pictures to television serials, advertisements to documentaries, educational videos to interviews, training videos to movie trailers and a host of others.
Reality shows are the in thing in television. They are basically unstructured production involving participants who may not be professionals. Preparing transcripts with time coding will help post production stages of editing or in preparing promotional trailers.
A total transcript with continuity can take a detailed form, with dialog, graphics, scene-by-scene descriptions, recaps in television serials, etc. A transcript of this nature can play a vital role in building a movie or serial brick-by-brick, as it were.
All through, as any error content can hamper a smooth production process. We have, of course, trained transcriptionists working for us. And their output goes under the scanner of a senior editorial panel, besides getting a 'once over' by specialists from the film and television medium.
