Qwiki

Qwiki is an industry leader in automated video production. Most recently, Qwiki released an iPhone app that automatically turns the pictures and videos from a user’s camera roll into brief, beautiful movies to share.

The company’s initial product, an iPad application that created video summaries of over 3 million search terms, was downloaded more than 3 million times and named by Apple as the best Search and Reference application of 2011.

After integrating this technology in the Bing Search engine and launching video creation tools for major publishers in cooperation with ABC News, the company launched Qwiki for iPhone, which received Apple’s Editor’s Choice and was mentioned as an Honoree in the 2013 Webby’s in two categories. Time Inc. recently named Qwiki one of “10 NYC Startups to Watch” for 2013. The company’s investors include cofounders of Facebook, YouTube and Groupon.
