How to reduce the cost of video by leveraging a full-service captioning provider
Video is all around us. More video content is uploaded in 30 days than the three major U.S. T.V. networks have created in the past 30 years. While it is becoming mandatory to create video content, you don’t have to break the bank to do it. For content creators looking to reduce the cost of video, leveraging the right captioning provider could be the answer.
Videos are a big investment
The average video can run from $100 to $1000 per minute to produce. Depending on the equipment and talent you use, this cost can climb dramatically. Once you’ve created your videos, you have to find an online video platform that can house your content.
Managing this video workflow from start to finish is a complicated process. When you consider the additional complexity of adding video captions and transcripts to the workflow, and it becomes important to consider not just the cost of captioning per minute, but the cost of integrating and managing captions within the entire video workflow.
Managing video captions is a multi-step process. A few things to consider are:
- How will captions be ordered?
- How will they be delivered to the videos on your platform?
- What happens if you need to make changes?
- What will happen if your captioning needs double — will your provider be able to handle the volume?
- How will billing and account management be handled across your organization?
Simply receiving a captioning file isn’t going to cut it. That’s why cielo24 has developed a full-service solution that handles the process from start to finish.
