At IBC 2018, PBT EU successfully launched its new Timed-Text hybrid platform NEXT-TT powered by Profuz Digital, providing users greater freedom of choice in how they work with desktop or cloud applications. PBT EU also introduced at IBC, innovative developments in its own brand EXEcutor™ Media Integrator module which continues to expand capabilities offering scalable and robust infrastructure to meet the needs that broadcasters, on demand video, and OTT content providers require.

The NEXT-TT solution is made up of of two distinct elements that work together as a unified platform: LAPIS (Limitless Advanced Powerful and Intelligent System) with timed-text subtitling software application SubtitleNEXT. The fusion has resulted in new capabilities that enable fast and reliable high quality timed-text management, dubbing and localisation toolsets that equip translators, AV professionals, and creative freelancers to work more efficiently.


NEXT-TT has already attracted the attention of leading Hollywood studios and quickly gaining a reputation as a gamechanger in subtitling. SubtitleNEXT and LAPIS can also be used separately bringing the best of both worlds to subtitlers.  (


The module-based EXEcutor™ Media Integrator introduced three new levels this year at IBC. The system serves as an essential addition to “Channel-In-A-Box” bundles, making it future-ready and adaptable for all production environments. It is a future-facing technology that evolves and scales with growing requirements without losing data or history and hosts dedicated tools for CRM and project management. The EXEcutor™ brand of products has been enhanced by the EXEcutor™ Media Integrator, plus the premiere of several new server models. PBT EU’s services can be tailor-made to create the best results to suit each individual case. (

Kamen Ferdinandov, CTO of PBT EU, present at the upcoming event remarked, “We are at a historic turning point and it is imperative to discuss the implications of how new solutions are making languages more accessible and affecting communications across cultures through media. This will certainly be a fascinating topic threading throughout the 3-day period. We have embraced these changes  ahead of time and very excited to present the adaptable capabilities that SubtitleNEXT already offers to help solve the challenges facing subtitlers today in a market that demands constant content at a rapid pace.”
