Getting Accessibility Right

The DCP is designed to carry closed caption text. Every digital cinema media block knows what to do with it. The technology that connects the closed caption text with third-party closed caption displays is open and ready to use in digital cinema media blocks. It’s this high degree of availability and interoperability that enabled the development of competitive third-party closed caption display systems that simply plug-in and work. So I am somewhat annoyed when receiving emails describing proprietary apps for smart phones and tablets that bypass the DCP. These systems utilize proprietary closed caption text that may never have been seen by the director or by the studio.
