NEW YORK, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldnow, the leading online technology, content, video and revenue-solutions company for local media, has announced that they are currently in compliance for IP delivered video. Their end-to-end technology is the only solution in the marketplace to integrate with television broadcasting systems for live streaming with closed captioning. In addition, for more than a decade Worldnow has led the industry in delivering accurate closed captioning information for our clients' video content.

"Their video technology is ever-evolving and we look forward to the next decade of enhancements."
