In January of 2012, The FCC released a Report and Order known as FCC-12-9 to extend rules and requirements for closed captioning to video programming delivered via Internet Protocol (IP). The report covers requirements for owners, providers, and distributors of IP-based video content, and provides an at-length discussion of how these rules were formulated and the scope to which they apply. To the set-top box manufacturer or application programmer, the additional requirements for closed caption display user configuration options are of interest. This white paper is a discussion of FCC-12-9 as it applies to the implementation of caption decoders, and how BitRouter’s CAPstack provides a solution to each of the issues raised.
