iCap Falcon

Connect your live stream to thousands of captioners over the iCap network with the cloud-hosted Falcon service. With Falcon, a professional human captioner or EEG's Lexi Automatic Captioning service uses your program audio reference to generate and return closed captions into your stream path in real-time. A fully virtual web service, Falcon takes the place of a traditional hardware encoder for direct-to-web live streaming workflows.

The Affordable Way to Caption Streams

Accessed via EEG Cloud Services with a subscription pricing model - Falcon is the ideal captioning solution for live streaming producers.

Quick and Easy On-Demand Setup

Self-configure your Falcon account or contact EEG Support with details of your streaming platform, destination, and desired caption transcription agency. You will recieve a personalized secure iCap access code to provide to your desired caption agency so they can access a low-latency proxy version of your stream and add captions. If uplinking video and audio through Falcon, you will also receive a private link to stream through falcon-ingest.eegcloud.tv, and Falcon will pass the captioned stream on to your specified ingest platfrom.

Seamless for Caption Agencies

Captioners connect to Falcon through the same methods used to caption television programs and live events all over the world. Once Falcon's access code is entered into their software they are instantly connected to your stream.

HTTP, RTMP, and H264 Technology Models

Falcon can merge live closed captions with your video stream in three ways:

  • HTTP uplink to the streaming platform, separately from the video uplink (works with services including YouTube Live Events, VideoLinq, and Wowza Streaming Engines with free EEG plugin)
  • New in 2017: Embedding of H264 Closed Captions into an RTMP stream before passing the stream to the video platform (works with YouTube Live Events, Wowza, UStream, LiveStream, most platforms delivering to iOS) 
  • New in 2017: Embedding of text-based Closed Captions into RTMP onTextData or onCaptionInfo messages (works with Wowza, UStream, Twitch, and most platforms delivering to Flash-based players)
