Media plays an important role in our day-to-day lives and keeps us informed of what’s happening around us as well as globally. Media professionals gather and disseminate information skillfully and broadcast it through news, films, radio, TV shows, and so on. Media transcripts are necessary for reality television, post production scripts, B-roll footage, unedited rushes, podcast transcripts, and more.

This is where media transcription comes in. The process involves the verbatim transcription of video or audio tape recordings as well as of digital recordings such as WAV, AU, MP3, MP4, DSS, and other file formats.

An established transcription company with sufficient industry experience can provide transcripts in client-specific format. Trained and experienced transcriptionists can time code audio or video content, inserting time stamps at the beginning and at the end of the edit or sequencing for the time code to indicate each line of dialog with a time code at the start and end of each shot. They can provide subtitles and caption for wide variety of media files. All the completed transcripts are carefully proofread and verified for quality assurance to ensure the required level of accuracy.

  • 99% accuracy with good audio

  • Complete workflow modules
  • Information security and confidentiality assured with 256 bit AES encryption for file transfer
