For over 20 years, VICOM has developed and built surtitles for theaters and opera houses. The integrated text displays in the seat backrests guarantee maximum comfort, as visitors can choose their own language in which to accompany them.
The leading program for Surtitles in Europe
SurtitlePro can be used for LED displays, projectors, monitors as well as analog and digital seat systems.
A much acclaimed use of this program is made at the Grand Theater del Liceu, Barcelona. There will be projection, LED display and text monitors in the seats at the same time controlled by this one software.
New in version 6 is that LED displays with their enormous brightness can finally be professionally controlled. If the texts appear too bright in a dark scene, a defined area with only eg 17% brightness can be played in the program.

For special applications, the memory recall mode in the displays (see description above) can also be switched off, so that information is transmitted "live" to the displays.
Company logos can be displayed in sponsorship or special events in a specific box, on individual or group of seats.
Individual texts can be sent to each individual seat. VIPs from politics, culture or business can be welcomed in their seats. Other applications include showing seat assignments, sponsors or seated sponsorships.
In the event of a problem that may occur, the operator can hide the texts in the chairs at any time, synchronize themselves again and then display the texts again. The audience does not notice this problem.
Speed and immediacy
Before the performance, all text and graphics are loaded into each text display. But each display has a correspondingly large memory. The SurtitlePro program will then only send short polling sequences for the operator to advance the texts. The previous form of transmission of many languages with correspondingly large files takes a long time and is delayed and thus not synchronized.
In certain areas of the theater, such as the periphery or a few seats in the middle, two displays have to be installed in a seatback, as in the row of seats behind two visitors from the same seat in front of them must be read.
Another feature is the high quality of the displays. The displays of a premium manufacturer that manufactures in Japan are used. A high luminous constancy and longevity are guaranteed here.
Combined with the high-quality and durable electronics from VICOM, the result is a system of the highest reliability, both today and in the future.
Decoupled from the "normal" subtitling program, refinancing can be promoted through the marketing department of the opera. The sponsorship is usually offered for one season but can of course be shorter or longer. Companies or institutions can also book the entire house including the system for their own events and presentations.
While the visitors visit their seats, for example, the endless loop shown on the left can be switched to the displays. The time interval is freely selectable.
