Cutting-Edge Technology: LEXI 3.0, AI-Media's latest automatic captioning solution, introduces innovative features such as speaker identification and AI-powered caption placement, ensuring accuracy exceeding 98%. LEXI's advanced vocabulary caters to region-specific nuances, including challenging pronunciations and complex spellings, enhancing the quality of sport content captioning.

Support for On-Demand FAST Channels: DAZN has implemented AI-Media's LEXI Recorded solution for captioning pre-recorded content on their FAST (Free Ad-supported Streaming TV) Channels. LEXI Recorded, a newly launched solution in the LEXI Tool Kit, offers fast turnaround, highly accurate and low-cost captions - essential for high volume, time-sensitive captioning applications of recorded content such as this.

Cost-Effective Solution: Transitioning from costly human captioning services to AI-Media's LEXI platform enables DAZN to deliver multi-language captions across multiple channels at the same cost as human delivery, enhancing accessibility while optimizing resources.
