Surtitles, sometimes also known as supertitles or subtitles, are translated or transcribed lyrics and dialogue displayed on a screen, commonly used in opera or other musical performances. Our Surtitle software is FREE, and can be used with many different sized displays from our range. The software has different modes, from simple scrolling up dialogue, to multi-language and dynamic modes. If you are interested in a surtitle system for your theatre, please Contact Us
We already have many professional and amateur companies across the globe using our Surtitle display system. The picture shown is a performance by Surrey Opera and they will be happy to discuss directly with you how useful Spectra’s Surtitle system has been to them and how it has enhanced the whole experience for members of the audience with impaired hearing while ensuring that they are compliant with the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act, 1995). For Surrey Opera, please see http://www.surreyopera.org/
Spectra supplies our own proprietary software to control the surtitle display. It is possible to write your own software, based on ours, as Surrey Opera have done. Surrey Opera have been generous enough to release their software for use with our displays on a supplied as-is basis.
This software includes the following features:
