Who are we?

From your everyday PowerPoint presentations to Hollywood movies, AI will transform the way we create and consume content.
Today, people want to watch and listen, not read — both at home and at work. If you’re reading this and nodding, check out our brand video.

Despite the clear preference for video, communication and knowledge sharing in the business environment are still dominated by text, largely because high-quality video production remains complex and challenging to scale—until now….
