General description

We develop state-of-the-art AI tech that changes how consumers around the globe watch video. By understanding what’s inside video, we generate next-generation metadata enabling Broadcasters, TV Operators and OTT services to improve their video viewing experiences. We do this 24/7, currently processing over 30.000 hours of video per day, impacting over 30 Million households for clients across the world.

Our AI technology allows us to create and imagine things not possible before. We have the creative and technical ability to distill topics, images, chapters and much more from video content - all automatically and in real-time. With this, we can explore the full potential behind every video segment and create new content value for our clients.
