California-based family captioning business offers transcription services for video producers and broadcasters that go beyond captioning to areas such as digital file delivery, translation and voice dubbing. Formerly known as Aberdeen Captioning, the company, which was founded in 2001, changed its name to Aberdeen Broadcast Services to reflect its expanding role in areas such as language services like translation, multi-language subtitling and voice overs.
Its three divisions are AberFast, AberCap, and AberLingo.
