Vidispine supports adding subtitles to an item and to do so, the metadata field group stl_subtitle must be used. The group should be placed within a timespan corresponding to the in- and out timecodes for when the subtitles should be displayed.


<MetadataDocument xmlns="">
  <timespan start="10@PAL" end="100@25">
      <field><name>stl_text</name><value>some text&#13;&#10;actually two lines</value></field>
