3Play Media was founded in 2008 by four MIT graduate students researching affordable ways to make video accessible through innovative technology.

We serve more than 10,000 customers across multiple industries, including education, media & entertainment, government, and enterprise companies. Our solution helps customers to increase the value of their online video by making it accessible, usable, searchable, and SEO-friendly.

In February 2022, 3Play Media acquired Captionmax, a leader in live and recorded captioning, localization, and audio description services. The acquisition included National Captioning Canada (NCC), the largest live captioning provider in Canada and a subsidiary of Captionmax, providing exciting geographic expansion for 3Play Media into the Canadian market.

The addition of these two companies to the 3Play Media family adds a complementary suite of services, firmly cementing 3Play Media’s position as the premier media accessibility provider in North America.
