3Play Media, Inc. Key Developments

3Play Media Launches Audio Description Services

3Play Media announced the launch of a game changing new audio description service, which will provide video producers and publishers with a drastically more flexible and cost-effective solution for complying with federal and state accessibility laws. Audio description makes video accessible for blind and low-vision viewers by narrating the relevant visual information contained in a video. Utilizing a combination of human describers and advanced speech synthesis technology, 3Play Media has been able to bring the cost of audio description well below current market prices. Content publishers can submit videos for description and download their completed files through a simple online account system. Unlike any other description offer, publishers will be able to edit files in an easy to use interface and receive updated versions on demand. To alleviate the exceptional difficulty of publishing audio description, 3Play Media has developed a keyboard accessible audio description plugin, which will interact with a publisher’s existing media player to enable audio description without having to republish an accessible version of the video.

3Play Media Integrates with Vimeo's API to Provide Creators with Simplified Closed Captioning and Subtitling Solutions

3Play Media announced a partnership with Vimeo. Joining Vimeo's API Integration Partner program, 3Play Media will automate the process of captioning videos for Vimeo members, enabling creators to make their videos more accessible, engaging, and viewable in any environment. With this integration, Vimeo users can submit videos for captioning directly from their Vimeo account using albums. These files will be transferred directly to 3Play Media for captioning. At all account levels, 3Play Media will automatically post the caption files back to the user's Vimeo videos when captioning is complete. This process alleviates the need to upload or download separate caption files and makes captioning possible with the click of a button.
