Captiview at the Movies

Tonight I was finally able to enjoy a big theatre experience with captioning! We went to see The Monument Men at Cineplex Southkeys and I was thrilled to be able to watch the movie with captioning. You see, when I watch a movie or TV I miss so much of the dialogue without captioning on. It can get pretty tiring and frustrating to rely only on lip reading. On the other hand, it’s sometimes funny and embarrassing when people around me all start laughing as I have no idea what was said.

I had tried the Captiview system once before, but it hadn’t worked. Not wanting to miss the beginning of the movie I had just turned it off and then returned it after the movie. I’m so glad I gave it another try tonight, it was so worth it!

CaptiView is a Closed Caption Viewing System for hearing impaired movie audiences.

The CaptiView system transmits and receives AES-128 encrypted closed captions on a wireless band frequency. With an 80 meter signal range, CaptiView can be used from ANY seat in the theatre. The CaptiView system consists of a small, OLED display on a bendable support arm that fits into the theater seat cup holder. The high contrast display comes with a privacy visor so it can be positioned directly in front the movie patron with minimal impact or distraction to neighboring patrons.
