Brightcove Live Auto Captioning: Overview


3Play Media offers a live automatic captioning solution for Brightcove Live events. Captions display for the live streaming event and are embedded on a webpage along with a Brightcove player.

The service uses automatic speech recognition (ASR) to create the captions and the quality of the captions will vary depending on audio quality, audio stream, and the duration of the delay that is set when the event is scheduled.  

Please note that 3Play Media's Live Auto Captioning solution supports Brightcove Live's DVR mode allowing viewers to skip back up to 3 minutes from the live stream while still retaining the sync between the captions and live streaming content.

Additionally, sync between the captions and the stream's audio can be adjusted by the viewer to achieve the best viewing experience possible.

Once the Live Auto Captions are available within the Live Auto Captioning module, the file can be upgraded and additional services can be ordered.


*Contact your Brightcove Account Manager to enable this feature

Please note that your Brightcove account will be charged for two streams when using 3Play Media's Live Auto Captioning feature.
