Ancillary (QuickTime Captions Track or Captions in MXF VANC Data) - AWS Elemental Server

This is version 2.16 of the AWS Elemental Server documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor File and AWS Elemental Server Documentation.

Ancillary (QuickTime Captions Track or Captions in MXF VANC Data)

If your input captions are in either of the following formats, the service handles them as "ancillary" data:

  • QuickTime captions track (format QTCC)

  • MXF VANC data

AWS Elemental Server does not create output captions in these formats, but you can convert them to a supported output format..

Note

If your content includes 608 XDS data, see Setting Up Input Captions With 608 XDS Data

For ancillary captions

  • Create one captions selector per track to use in your outputs.

  • In each captions selector, for Source, choose Ancillary.

  • In each captions selector, for CC channel, choose the channel number for the track that is associated with the selector.

    For example, the input captions have English in CC channel 1 and Spanish in CC channel 2. To use these captions, create Captions selector 1, and then choose 1 in the CC channel dropdown list. Next, create Captions selector 2, and then choose 2 in the CC channel dropdown list.
