Services

Synchronization

Our core service is preparing synchronized transcripts. You provide us with your transcript and matching media. We return a synchronized file in your choice of formats. We offer a free tool, SyncUploader, to send the work, track its progress, and retrieve the finished work.  We synchronize for a wide variety of applications including legal depositions, seminars, webinars, in-house training, YouTube videos, and captioning synchronized for ADA Section 508 compliance.

AutoSync is our fastest and least expensive option for sync.

This automated system will recognize the spoken content of your file, and match it up with the transcript automatically.

Our proprietary technology can adapt to each individual media file to achieve the most accurate sync possible. If the confidence level is below 90% a new acoustic model will be built adapted specifically to that media segment, and the job will be automatically reprocessed to try to improve the score.

When complete you’ll receive an email with the details of the job. SyncUploader will download the finished work to your computer.

easyQC: Quality Control made easy. If you want the ultimate in accuracy, you can use our easyQC service.

Sometimes there are factors that cause errors in the AutoSync. With easyQC, our experienced proofing staff will listen, read along, and mark by hand the time of each uncertain line of text. Common situations that may benefit of from easyQC are files with people talking over each other, loud coughing, poor quality audio signal, inaccurate transcript, background music, inarticulate speakers, and depositions with a translator present.

With easyQC our experienced staff will hand stamp every line of the file where the automated system was uncertain. You can choose your committed turn-around time: Rush, 1-day, 2-day, or 3day service is available. This cost is as little as an additional $3/media hour for this valuable service.

Be smart about how you use your time and let us handle the manual time-stamping.

Encoding

- DVD to MPEG-1
- Digitize other formats (Audio Cassette, Micro Cassette, Mini-DV, VHS, 8mm)

Before a deposition can be used in most trial presentation software it needs to be in the correct digital format.  SyncUploader is very flexible and can sync to just about any digital media.  However, your playback software may not be as flexible — most trial presentation software will suggest video be in MPEG-1 format.

Most of our customers already have, or are able to produce MPEG-1 video files in-house.  If you don’t know how to convert, or if you have a bigger stack of DVDs than you care to slog through for conversion to MPEG-1, Synchron can help.  Just ship us your source media, and we’ll take care of the rest.  Within a few days we’ll ship back the finished work.

Synchron Voice and Video, Inc. uses professional encoding hardware and software to ensure your files are reliable and look as good as possible. We have the experience to identify and work around many potential issues with source media. We can convert from a wide variety of sources to a format that will ‘play-nice’ with your presentation software.
