Liberty Platform

Liberty, our proprietary metadata harvesting platform allows us to deliver transcripts as structured searchable data all within a secure and scalable environment.  It’s been designed to support transcription, localisation and compliance requirements, as well as content search and discovery optimisation.

Content Localisation

We recognise the importance of an accurate English language master template, to enable TV content to be localised into multiple languages.  Take 1 can be trusted to provide this accurate base transcript, as well as a wealth of useful reports which can be extracted using our metadata platform Liberty.

Overnight Turnarounds

With typing pools all over the planet, we’re able to offer lightning fast turnarounds. Our large capacity ensures we can process even large jobs very quickly, and our “follow-the-sun” model means that we can type while you sleep!  Turnarounds from same day through to 3 day, are available.

Scriptsync Compatible

If required, your transcripts can be delivered in a layout that imports into Scriptsync.  If you use Avid or Scriptsync, you’ll be able to manipulate our transcripts within Scriptsync during the edit, which is convenient and will save you valuable time.

Our Heritage

Take 1 has been operating globally for 20 years with a strong reputation working with Networks, Broadcasters and Production Companies, providing accurate transcripts and translations to assist in the edit; final program scripts to support distribution, localisation and compliance; and streamlining workflows.

We have the capacity to handle projects of any size, delivering on time and on budget for customers across the globe, and with over 50,000 hours of content passing through our doors each year, you can be sure we have the people, the passion and the rigorous quality control procedures to deliver unrivalled levels of precision on every project. Choose Take 1 and with typists in every time zone your case can be handled while you’re sleeping and the results waiting for you the very next morning, with all data files encrypted securely and your information kept confidential as a result of our robust data protection protocols. Choose a turnaround time to fit your schedule from 3 day to same day, we’re the only name you need for all your transcription services.
