The Future of
Automated
Captioning is

Introducing the ACE Series of Automatic Closed Captioning Systems from Link Electronics

I’ve been in the broadcast engineering business 33 yrs. In that time, I’ve learned that if Link makes it, buy it. Their products are solid, and just work day in and day out. If something DOES ever go wrong, they go the extra mile to make it right.

- Joey Gill | WPSD-TV

When we first watched the demonstration, I was in total denial.  I just "knew" there must be some smoke and mirrors. When we performed the demonstration for our General Manager, we set up an off-line output of the Link ACE-2000 on our Engineering station monitor, with another output of what our Real-Time Caption Company was captioning on a different monitor. We were all surprised that the ACE-2000 looked better than Real-Time Captioning that was on the air.

Why Choose ACE?

Accuracy

Right out of the box, the ACE series will perform fully-automated, broadcast compliant, live closed captioning for live broadcasts, streaming content, or post-production with a documented 95% accuracy.

Speaker Independent

The ACE series uses a highly advanced linguistics algorithm that converts speech into text. This means it is not trained to a specific voice, but instead recognizes speech from anyone.

Cost Savings

Typical captioning services can cost local TV stations several thousand dollars each week. With the ACE Series from Link Electronics, there are no subscription service charges, no emergency or after hours fees, and no hassle. Your facility’s investment will pay for itself in just a few weeks.

Service

Our customer service is unbeatable. With free 24/7 technical support we put our customers first. Whether you are calling our office during normal business hours or calling the after hours number, we go the extra mile to make sure our customers walk away with solutions, not frustrations.
