NEW YORK, July 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldnow, the only separate or fully-integrated CMS, Video, and Mobile solution, announces that they are compliant with all aspects of the latest FCC ruling on July 11th. Furthermore, Worldnow is already able to meet the requirements scheduled to come into effect over the next few years, which extend IP closed captioning requirements to include any online video clip that was initially distributed via on-air television.

Worldnow has continually remained one-step ahead of competitors and the FCC when it comes to closed captioning regulatory issues. In June, Worldnow announced the Multi-Device Player SDK, which seamlessly integrates with any platform and system, to provide fully compliant closed captioning on any third party application and mobile site. The WN Multi-Device Player supports all video needs while allowing users to fully customize closed captioning features, including the ability to change font type, font color, font transparency, background color, window color, text size, beveling, and alignment. 

Worldnow's Video Cloud automatically captures closed caption data from live HD on-air signals in a transcoded and edit-ready format to instantly live stream in real-time to any destination, in any format. In addition, Worldnow's cloud stores caption data for video-on-demand (VOD) distribution.

Worldnow provides media professionals the only solution that connects closed linear systems that broadcast live and near-live television events to the digital world, seamlessly delivering FCC-compliant closed captioning across all digital properties, regardless of the screen and device. 

Whether the goal is to publish to OTT/IPTV, desktop, tablets, mobile, and/or social networks, Worldnow's Media Vision Application, Video Scribe software, and Dynamic Video Player provide media companies with the most advanced IP closed captioning technology for both VOD and live video. Worldnow's Video Platform is only one aspect of the Worldnow End-to-End Solution, which allows media companies to focus on doing what they do best: creating quality video content.
