BOSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 20, 2016 — 3Play Media announced today a partnership with Vimeo, a leading video-sharing platform where creators can upload, share and sell high quality videos directly to viewers worldwide. 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.
“Vimeo’s Integration Partner program is dedicated to improving experiences for both Vimeo’s community of video creators and our partner’s customers through our robust API,” said Michael Weissman, General Manager, Vimeo. “Accessibility remains a top priority for Vimeo and we’re excited to offer users seamless access to 3Play Media’s leading captioning, transcription and subtitling solutions for their video needs.”
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.
"3Play Media believes strongly in removing barriers to closed captioning and helping improve the viewing experience," said Josh Miller, Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer at 3Play Media." With Vimeo's API, we can provide video creators with a dramatically simplified captioning workflow so they can make their videos more accessible and engaging for all viewers."
