Visual intelligence company AnyClip announced it has raised $47 million in funding led by JVP. With this funding round, the company is planning to introduce the expanded AnyClip platform — which is ushering a new era in video analytics with the goal of offering businesses the next generation AI tools necessary for unlocking the power of video.
Video production, dissemination and viewership is now at an all-time high, accelerated by a year of a global pandemic lock-down. And it is clear that businesses are simultaneously producing and drowning in content as video becomes the dominant form of communication.
As businesses are struggling to cope with the proliferation of video – internally and externally – they have been looking for a revolutionary solution to the challenge, a solution that drives discovery and contextual viewership and achieves business KPIs without the inherent financial investment, professional overhead and need for in-house technical expertise.
AnyClip is now meeting that challenge with the introduction of the first fully automated and centralized platform for video management, distribution, contextualization and analytics, and monetization — powered by its proprietary visual intelligence. Capable of harvesting data from video 10 times faster than real time, the AnyClip platform delivers a scalable and uniquely data-rich solution for businesses across all verticals looking to compete in the new video frontier.
AnyClip has seen a major increase in revenue last year, providing innovative video solutions for companies around the world looking to maximize the value of their video content. And today’s announcement — yet another step in the company’s evolution in proprietary video technology over the last 5 years is part of a new multi-tiered strategy that AnyClip is launching to capitalize on its proprietary technology, transforming the way organizations communicate with their audiences. The company is planning to use the new investment to double its headcount from its current count of 120 employees across all offices.
This marks a significant evolution and expansion of the company and the creation of a new category with AnyClip first to market as a “visual intelligence” company. And AnyClip’s proprietary visual intelligence technology allows companies to mobilize their latent video by extracting and surfacing the data within them via real-time, AI-fueled tagging ̶ instantly turning dormant video libraries into high performance assets capable of being immediately discovered, searched, measured and merchandised. Plus the AnyClip platform is a singular, automated, and centralized solution for video management, distribution, analytics and monetization that empowers businesses with high performance video solutions and optimization capabilities.
This investment round was led by JVP. And other investors included are La Maison, Bank Mizrahi and internal investors.
“Video is now the leading communications medium for businesses around the world, but this tectonic shift to video has resulted in an infinite amount of new content that’s nearly impossible to navigate. Our visual intelligence platform is helping bring order to this chaos for businesses in all industries, of all sizes and in any language. Powered by this new investment, AnyClip is expanding to address the needs of a huge untapped market for an automated platform that makes videos more discoverable, actionable, and personalized.”
— AnyClip CEO Gil Becker
“There is a revolution coming in the way enterprises use video to convey their message and their identity. For the first time, AI meets video. Companies and organizations are now working to utilize this to create a new mode of communications, internally and externally, in all areas where video dominates in a much stronger way than text. Whether it’s how to create videos for consumers or training videos for the organization, or learning how to manage conferences run by video on Zoom which need intelligent management in the retrieving of content. This is a new era, and AnyClip is a vital tool for anyone embarking upon it.”
