BVDM Launches Closed Captioning


Broadway Video Digital Media Launches Closed Captioning Services Division

New York, NY, January 5, 2009 – Broadway Video Digital Media (BVDM), already a leader in the post-production services sector, brought a new offering to market in the last quarter of 2008.  Investing in best-in-class equipment and an experienced, professional staff, BVDM expanded its already extensive list of media services to include closed caption and subtitle writing.

With the ability to write caption files and subtitles for broadcast programming, HD, digital cinema, DVDs, and the Web, all from its Times Square operations center, BVDM has become one of the only full-service captioning facilities located within New York City.  “Launching the entire array of closed captioning services was simply a logical extension of our turnkey service bureau model.  We planned this launch for many months to assure that we would deliver the expertise, service, and high quality products that producers and content owners have come to expect from us, says Mark Yates, BVDM’s President.”

To spearhead their charge into caption writing, BVDM hired Darren Yuvan as its Captioning Services Manager.  Darren brought a wealth of captioning knowledge and experience to BVDM, having honed his skills at some of the largest and best known companies in the industry including MTV Networks and VITAC.  “Coming to BVDM is a fantastic opportunity to work with a proven industry leader that has committed itself to the highest level of product quality.  I’m excited to be on board and working with the new team,” says Yuvan.   Dirk Van Dall, BVDM’s VP and General Manager adds, “We will continue hiring the best talent available, and make use of the most innovative technologies to keep the caption process as cost efficient as possible, without sacrificing quality.  The end result for our clients will be competitive rates, fast turnaround, and unparalleled product value.”

BVDM’s Closed Captioning Services Division is currently working on several series and features for a variety of clients, and is proud to be considered one the best local resources for the industry’s closed caption needs.
