This option enables the output of Closed Captioning and Subtitle (MXF-OP47) data. It supports CEA-708 captions in a QuickTime track of 1080i video file and outputs CEA-708 Closed Captioning using supported hardware. Note that it will also only work when using the same video format (size and fps). You will not be able to mix and match frame rates if you want to use Closed Captioning. If using OnTheAir Node 4, subtitles in MXF-OP47 format are also supported (for Europe and Australia).
If you are ordering an option together with a license, you will receive only one serial number that contains everything, the application license, with all the options. But if you already have the license and that you order this option at a later time, you'll have to follow the guidelines below.
HOW TO ADD AN OPTION TO A LICENSE YOU ALREADY HAVE ?
If you are using a Serial Number, you will receive an upgrade serial number that you will add to the list of serial numbers in the "License" window and activate it, just as a "Master Serial Number" (the one that you received when you first ordered. This means that you will always have to have the 2 Serial Numbers activated.
If you are using a Dongle, you will need to send us the dongle serial number that you intend to upgrade so we can send you an upgrade file for that dongle.
If you are using a Serial Number but want to upgrade to a dongle, it is still possible, order a dongle from the store and tell us what Application Serial Number it should replace. We will then send you the procedure for the migration.
SERIAL NUMBER OR DONGLE ?
By default, when ordering a license, you will receive a Serial Number by email that will require an activation using an internet connection. Before moving your serial number to another computer, you will need to deactivate it form the first computer. We strongly advise ordering the dongle option in cases of a critical use of the software, for example, if you need to move your license frequently from one computer to another, OR if you want to quickly move the license from the main computer to the backup in case of a hardware malfunction.
For more information on the activaton/deactivation process or the dongles, you should have check the Knowledge Base about our licenses available on the Softron Support Desk.
