  1. I find the mixing of information about Telestream’s enterprise products and information about Telestream’s desktop products confusing. In the case of this article, what desktop application user needs to know where CEA-608 and CEA-708 caption data is stored? A little more granularity might be helpful. How about two blogs, one for enterprise and one for desktop?
