Descriptive Video – also known as Audio Description or Described Video – is the closed-captioning equivalent for the vision impaired. It consists of an audio track that contains all the elements of the show plus, in between the lines of dialogue, a narration of the visual elements that appear on the screen. This audio track is then typically broadcast on the SAP channel, on two special channels for High Definition broadcasts, or digitally through the cable or satellite provider. In effect, television for the blind.
reSight (operating under a different name at the time) supplied Descriptive Video to Canada’s Global Television Network, the first private network in the world to have scheduled DV as part of their regular programming. In addition, our work has been broadcast by virtually all the major networks in Canada.

Over the last sixteen years we have dubbed corporate and broadcast productions into other languages, including Spanish and French.
Our turn around, efficiency, accuracy and talent have made us the choice of several clients, including ChumCity International, IMAX Corporation, Interwood Marketing, Thane Direct and many others, for whom we have dubbed or versioned a variety of shows, in both lip-sync and UN-style.
