LIFT Hosts Profuz Digital – Media Accessibility, Creative Captioning and Subtitling with SubtitleNEXT



Toronto, July 10, 2020—The Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) is pleased to host an online demonstration with Profuz Digital and their program SubtitleNEXT. Accessibility in film is fast becoming an essential part of the creative workflow. Captions and subtitles can no longer be considered an after-thought. That’s why LIFT is bringing an online product demonstration for SubtitleNEXT software.

SubtitleNEXT is a professional multipurpose software by Profuz Digital for creation and live streaming of closed captions, subtitles, and dubs, and audiovisual localization.

SubtitleNEXT will be available in the LIFT’s Digital Editing Suite for Production Members once we have reopened rentals of the post-production facility.

The demonstration will be centred around digital media accessibility requirements, how to create accessible media, the accessibility features of SubtitleNEXT itself, and how to include creative captions and subtitles in the filmmaking process. Following the presentation we’ll have time for questions and a brief conversation about the software.

Facilitated by Kamen Ferdinandov, who is the Chief Technology Officer and Managing Partner of Profuz Digital. Kamen is responsible for building PlayBox’s Channel in a Box, Profuz LAPIS and SubtitleNEXT.
