Live Described Video (Live DV)

  • Authored on February 14, 2019

Live Described Video (LDV) is similar to post-production DV, but is performed in real-time during a live event or program. Live Described Video weaves additional description into what’s already included to create a more vivid picture for the blind and partially sighted audience. AMI-tv has live described a number of high-profile events including The Royal Wedding, Toronto Blue Jays Baseball, the Grey Cup and the Paralympic Summer and Winter Opening ceremonies.

Live-to-tape Described Video

Live-to-tape DV is similar in nature to Live DV except that the real-time narration procedure is applied to previously recorded programs. This method is used to expedite the production process for productions with a fast turnaround and little action.
