Tektronix has revealed that it has teamed up with Nexidia to integrate Nexidia Comply software, to bring automated analysis of closed caption content, a feature that previously required human intervention, to its portfolio of Sentry video quality monitors.

Using Sentry, broadcasters and cable operators are able to verify the technical elements of closed captions, such as whether captions are present, appear at the right time and are properly placed, among other factors. Now, with the integration of the Nexidia Comply software, Sentry will also be able to ensure that the text presented in a closed caption accurately matches the spoken dialogue.

Nexidia Comply, part of the Nexidia Illuminate software suite, uses patented speech recognition technology to check the validity of closed captions in comparison to spoken language. Integration with Sentry means there will be no changes needed in workflow, monitoring or reporting processes in order to take advantage of Nexidia Comply's closed caption content analysis.

The solution will be available to customers in an upcoming release of Sentry.
