The Parliament of NSW invites tenderers to submit a Quotation to the Parliament for the implementation and supply of a human-based, non-automated live captioning service for parliamentary events held in the two chambers (the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council) and three committee rooms (the Macquarie Room, Jubilee Room and Preston Stanley Room) as well as the supply of live captions as text for the Parliament's in-house reporting service (Hansard).
The Parliament produces live video across three platforms: an in-house IPTV system, a public-facing web stream and a cloud-hosted video-on-demand system. It should also be noted that wider technology and digitalisation projects are planned for NSW Parliament House. As such live captioning and the caption-to-text system must be futureproof and capable of integration with evolving broadcast, IT and other building systems.
Hansard operates year round and provides an edited transcript of all broadcast parliamentary proceedings. As such the Parliament intends to reuse the live captions in a textual format as an input to the transcription process. The timely conversion of live captions to text is therefore an integral requirement, and an explanation of the workflow for such a conversion must be outlined in the Quotation.
