Introducing: Vidyard Integration for Closed Captions, Transcription & Subtitles
Updated: February 26, 2018
We’re pleased to announce a new roundtrip captioning integration with Vidyard. This integration offers a seamless captioning and transcription workflow for videos on the Vidyard platform.
What is Vidyard?
Vidyard is a video hosting and analytics platform that businesses use to turn viewers into customers.
Vidyard stores and streams video across multiple devices (desktop, tablet, mobile), and it tracks the users’ viewing habits, such as which videos they watch and for how long.
It integrates with CMS platforms so that sales and marketing teams can measure the effectiveness of their video to identify and nurture prospects.
Savvy businesses know that video transcription and captioning increases SEO, driving more traffic to your website. If you want your content to be fully optimized for search, you’ll want to caption all your web video.
This new integration with Vidyard makes that easy to do. Just link your Vidyard account to your 3Play Media account. Then you can request transcription directly in Vidyard, and the finished transcript will be downloadable from your Vidyard dashboard as a text or caption file.
