Keywords sets up shop in Vancouver with Descriptive Video Works acquisition

Service provider Keywords Studios has acquired audio description firm Descriptive Video Works.

The sale was agreed at $2.4m (CAD $3.2m), with the new deal providing Keywords its first office in Vancouver.

The Canada-based company was founded in 2003 to provide audio description services for broadcast streaming programs, documentaries, feature films and live action series. Examples of this include the summer and winter Olympics on NBC.

Previously collaborated

"In 2018, Keywords and Descriptive Video Works collaborated on a transcreation project in which a major video game franchise was made ready for OTT streaming in an interactive format and we were really impressed by both the team's capabilities and how well we worked together,” said Keywords Studios CEO Andrew Day (pictured).
