Closed Captioning Online Video Clips for FCC Compliance

In July of 2014, the FCC ruled that closed captioning requirements for online video content would extend to video clips. Beginning in January of 2016, single excerpt clips from captioned television programs must be captioned when they are published online. For instance, a 2-minute clip of a TV show that the network puts online would have to have captions. Over the next few years, other types of clips will be implicated.

This webinar provides an in-depth analysis of the FCC’s rules and deadlines for closed captioning of online video clips, which pose significant challenges for video distributors. Captioning video clips is expensive and time consuming and often requires recreating closed captions that already exist for the full-length video. Andrew Schwartz, the Senior Research and Development Engineer at 3Play Media, will show you how to use our Video Clip Captioner to automatically generate closed captions for your clips by extracting them from the full-length video captions. This webinar will both help you understand your responsibilities for captioning video clips and provide efficient solutions for doing so. Topics covered include:

  • Legal requirements for captioning online video clips
  • Deadlines for compliance
  • FCC’s quality standards for captioning
  • Cost-effective, fast solutions for FCC compliance
