3Play Media Company Overview

What We Do

We provide premium closed captioning, transcription, and subtitling solutions at very competitive prices. Our goal is to simplify the process by providing a user-friendly account system, fast turnaround, flexible API’s, and integrations with a multitude of video players, platforms, and lecture capture systems. We create closed captions and subtitles in many different formats and languages. We also develop video search plugins and a range of tools that save time and cut costs. Our commitment to innovation has led to 7 patents (granted and pending)–all of which focus on making the captioning, subtitling, and transcription process more efficient and less expensive.

How We Got Started

3Play Media was founded in 2007 by four MIT graduate students researching affordable ways to make video accessible through innovative technology. Drawing on research from the MIT Spoken Language Systems Group, we developed a more efficient captioning and transcription process that combines automatic speech recognition with human editing cleanup.

Our Customers

Our services and products are used by more than 1,600 universities, companies, and government agencies across a wide range of industries. A few of our customers are Procter & Gamble, Time Warner Cable, MIT, Autodesk, the IRS, and the University of Wisconsin.

How Our Customers Benefit

Our captioning, transcription, and subtitling solutions increase the value of online video by making it accessible, usable, searchable, and SEO-friendly. Customers benefit in different ways. Educational institutions and government agencies benefit by complying with accessibility laws; media & entertainment producers and distributors benefit by complying with FCC captioning rules; online video publishers benefit from better SEO, searchability, and user engagement; market researchers and video producers gain productivity through video search, clipping, and editing tools.
