The Subtitle Display method allows you to configure subtitle displays for images rendered by either the Media Player subsystem or Interactive application. The tool can discern between image and text-based subtitles and render the subtitle in the either format. This accommodates non-4K legacy media that is not packaged with text-based subtitles in the same Interactive application.
Text-based subtitles are the preferred method on NEXT and future monitors going forward. Text-based subtitles provide more flexibility around rendering subtitles, such as color, size and coordinates, and, additionally, serve to meet accessibility requirements.
You can view more details in the DevLab titled Configure Subtitle Display Method in Media Player Subsystem and Interactive Application.
