Belgium’s Videohouse has selected PBT EU’s SubtitleNEXT software to further enhance its content services department, predominantly for the creation of subtitles. PBT EU develops and provides performance-leading solutions and customisable engineering system integration to empower content providers, broadcast, production and post production professionals to operate efficiently at the forefront of an ever-evolving digital environment.

Two levels of SubtitleNEXT chosen by Videohouse are SubtitleNEXT Explorer and SubtitleNEXT Expert. SubtitleNEXT is a user-friendly, innovative, customisable, intuitive timed-text software platform. Already adopted across various multimedia industries, it easily adapts to any settings, resolutions and formats across online video, TV, film, theatre, concerts, festivals, conferences and events. It can be applied throughout the entire production process from concept to distribution.

Well-established for more than 30 years, Videohouse has a strong presence in the Belgian market by producing films and videos, owning television and broadcast studios, and offering TV, news, movie and B2B production, as well as AV engineering services. Videohouse also operates state-of-the-art post-production services, hosting a versatile department of video editors, audio mixers, colourists and graphic designers. Videohouse also has its own playout centre that can be flexibly adapted to the specific needs of the various types of broadcaster.

Maria Maria Markovska, PBT EU’s sales and product specialist, said:“We collaborated with the Videohouse team to customise and adapt the SubtitleNEXT software usability and efficiency to match the requirements set by the Subtitling department at Videohouse. The PBT EU team worked to deliver an optimum, high quality, streamlined and future-facing solution within an environment that provides maximum flexibility to meet the varied demands in an extremely busy department that faces a large daily workload of content to complete at tight turnarounds.”

Ann Van Bogaert, head of the subtitling/translation department at Videohouse, added: “Software licences of SubtitleNEXT Explorer and SubtitleNEXT Expert from PBT EU were recently installed and integrated into our workflow to boost efficiency. We have wasted no time in putting the software to work and we are already systematically implementing it in our day-to-day work.”
