Category: Product (Hardware/Material/Software)
Details of Inventor(s):
Inventor Institution/Organization/Company Department Designation
Sh. Sudesh Mudliar (Project Co-Investigator) C-DAC Pune GIST Group Joint Director
Technical Application Area: ITS & Assistive Technology
If 'Other', please specify:
Please give more details of new technical application area:
Enabling Technology for TV Broadcasters to make programmes accessible to persons with hearing disabilities.
Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC) Pune
Affiliated Ministry: MeitY, Govt. of India
Type of technology development: Indigenous
Does the technology help in replacing any import items currently
procured from outside India?
Does the technology have export potential? Yes
Category of Technology developed: Immediate Deployment
Stage of Development: Field Test
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
LIPS digital has been field tested on the networks of Indian Public Broadcaster and the set-top-boxes available in Indian market. The solution readily integrates with Indian TV broadcasting set-ups however certain aspects like integration with Playout automation system and broadcast management system are specific to the broadcast set-up.


Applications: LIPS digital is an enabling technology for broadcaster to provide subtitles with the TV programmes. This comes with the suite of applications including LIPS Creation, LIPS Generator and LIPS Preview Station. The subtitles can be switched ON or OFF or the Language can be changed by the viewers. This will help enables the accessibility of TV programme to the viewers with hearing disabilities, deaf and geriatric.
Advantages: The solution has the following Features: 1. Supports both SD and HD subtitles 2. Supports Hindi and other Indian languages with Unicode support 3. Aesthetically designed TV fonts for high resolution graphics 4. Language independent Bitmap subtitles 5. Solution Pluggable with DTH transmission set-ups 6. User can switch on or off the subtitles 7. Subtitles with different fonts, font size and styles like bold, Italic, underline etc. 8. Subtitles with effects like background color, foreground color, outline color, edge, shadow etc. 9. Preview and timer facility to subtitles 10. Subtitle Creation, Editing, Translation and Preview system with Multiview support with multiple subtitle file format support.

I-Mitra(आई-मित्र) Welcomes You..
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
