What We Do

3Play Media provides premium closed captioning, transcription, translation, and audio description to customers across higher education, media & entertainment, enterprise, and government. Video accessibility is important to us, so we decided to make the process easier for everyone. 

Our platform provides a captioning solution that combines the best of both worlds – automated machine learning technology and real, human editors – to give our customers total peace of mind & future-proof their video accessibility solution. We are committed to constant innovation, which has led us to file 7 patents (granted and pending) that make the captioning, subtitling, and transcription process more efficient & less expensive. 

Born in Boston

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, a more efficient captioning & transcription process (blending automation and human editing) was born.

  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

With a documented diversity, equity, and inclusion manifesto, we are consciously working to ensure these values are upheld throughout our company – from our hiring process to hiring dedicated DEI staff. We also conduct company-wide unconscious bias trainings, and continue to look for resources & opportunities to make DEI something not-so-taboo to talk about in the workplace.
