Please contact your account manager if you would like to utilize the 3Play integration with Evertz Caption Conductor. Follow the steps below to link your Evertz Caption Conductor account to a 3Play Media project for live captioning of any video utilizing your Evertz Caption Conductor infrastructure. 


Step 1 - Log in and Retrieve Information from your Evertz Caption Conductor Access Server

In order to link your Evertz Caption Conductor account to your 3Play account, you will need to retrieve 2 pieces of information from your Evertz Caption Conductor Facility Server:

  1. Your Caption Conductor Access Server URL - this allows 3Play to know the location of your account. Contact your Evertz account manager if you need this information. 
  2. Evertz Caption Conductor "API Keys" - Evertz API keys will be generated within Evertz, and then entered into 3Play. These will give 3Play the permission to post captions back to your encoder for a given event.
    1. Regarding the number of API keys you will need to generate: create as many keys as caption encoders you expect to manage through CC plus one additional key. For example, if you have 5 encoders, you should generate 6 API keys.
