Always available. Our cutting-edge studios are open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to accommodate the tightest of deadlines.
Our turnaround. A seamless production process delivers on budget and on time. Our technical expertise guarantees a top quality product, a commitment we’ve made to our clients for more than 14 years.
Recognized standard of quality in Audio Description
BROADCAST and STREAMING
Completed audio description for more than 20,000 television shows and feature films.
First with live televised theatrical productions, special event programming and world-class sporting events.
CORPORATE and MULTIMEDIA
Audio description for online video messaging for corporate, educational and promotional needs.
Please imagine not being able to see. We don’t know what our peers are wearing or doing, leaving us at a disadvantage socially. It is difficult to make friends when we can’t talk about sports, TV programs, fashion, or when you miss the action or joke because it was something visual. DV fills in these gaps. … Being able to talk knowledgeably with sighted people about these things demonstrates that I am not that different from them, I just can’t see.
