Congratulations to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) for receiving a Technology & Engineering Emmy Award at CES this year for making video content more accessible with text captioning and subtitles.
For the category “Standardization and Pioneering Development of Non-Live Broadband Captioning,
MovieLabs is proud to work with the W3C to advance new TTML features such as TTML Profiles for Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0 (IMSC1). IMSC1 is intended to simplify TTML implementation and authoring by bringing together popular TTML profiles in use in the industry, including EBU-TT-D. IMSC1 adds support for enhanced text padding, image subtitles and forced subtitles. Pierre-Anthony Lemieux (supported by MovieLabs) is the editor of IMSC1.
