New Look and New Tools
Updated: January 4, 2018
As described in this press release, the interactive transcript plugin that we have referenced is now extremely user friendly and can be embedded on anyone’s website with just a snippet of code. Think YouTube video embed capability for the corresponding transcript.
Our new developments also include an improved video search plugin — allowing users to search through entire archives of content and jump to exact segments of media — and an upgraded user account system. File transfer has been made far easier and includes the ability to directly import files from existing video platforms, such as Brightcove and Kaltura. Completed files can then automatically be sent to the plugin tied into the player embedded on your site. Transcription, captions and video search can be nearly hands off!
There has never been so much media content available for such easy consumption. As we’ve previously discussed transcripts and captions are the stepping stone to a far richer digital media experience. Text is the key to navigation and accessibility online. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to unleash your content to the online world and to keep your audience coming back for more.
