3Play Media was founded in 2007 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.
3Play Media is committed to making web video widely accessible, using technology and human expertise to deliver high-quality video accessibility services at a fair cost and unlimited scale.
We offer premium closed captioning, live auto-captioning, audio description, transcription, and subtitling solutions at competitive prices. We provide a user-friendly account system, fast turnaround, flexible APIs, and integrations with a multitude of video players, platforms, and lecture capture systems. Our commitment to innovation has led to 7 patents (granted and pending)–all of which focus on making the captioning, audio description, subtitling, and transcription process more efficient and less expensive.
3Play Media was founded on a mission of inclusion and has deep roots in accessibility. We believe in the social and business obligation to foster diversity, belonging, and inclusion, and we value the many ways in which they make us stronger. We also believe that bringing your true self to the office – and being welcomed for it – should be a given.
Our company is great because of our people, and cultivating diversity is a critical component of what will continue to make us great as we grow. If you are a womxn, LGBTQIA+ individual, BIPOC, person with disabilities, and/or member of other marginalized or historically underrepresented groups, we hope that you’ll apply and add your talents to our community.
3Play Media is a rapidly growing start-up located in the North End neighborhood in Boston. We’re looking for motivated, energetic, and creative candidates who are excited to help us transform the way people access video.
