On April 17, Sean Bersell from the Entertainment Merchants Association and Dae Kim from Netflix will be joining 3Play Media’s Josh Miller and Claudia Rocha for a webinar entitled Closed Captioning Best Practices and Legal Requirements for Digital Distribution of TV & Film.

The free webinar will discuss the new and upcoming FCC regulations requiring video programming that is captioned on TV to also be captioned when distributed on the Internet. If you’re curious about the legal obligations, best practices, and standards for captioning entertainment and media content, this is the webinar for you. It will cover FCC regulations, exemptions, affected programming, standards for captioning and subtitling, the FCC’s new mandates on caption quality and end-user control, and the best practices for caption formats, certifications, frame rate, styling, and onscreen placement.

With numerous legal requirements recently instated, and with more impending deadlines on the horizon, this webinar will help you navigate your next course of action in terms of captioning and subtitling.
