Wochit is a video creation platform empowering newsrooms, creators and brands to capture and expand audience attention through the power of video. Founded in 2012, Wochit makes video accessible for anyone to produce and share at scale across all social and digital platforms. With Wochit, videos can be created quickly, using pre-negotiated, rights-cleared assets from AP, Reuters, Getty, Bloomberg and many more sources. Wochit is the winner of both the Gutenberg Prize for its disruptive technology in the field of journalism and Digiday’s Best Video Technology Innovation for its positive impact on clients’ bottom line.
As video consumption and share of overall online audience continues to multiply, organizations of all sizes are under increasing pressure to make video a standard to all owned content practices. Wochit makes this possible in one efficient platform, and does so on behalf of media brands worldwide including Gannett, AOL, The Week, Die Welt, Der Spiegel, ProSieben, YLE Kioski, NRC Media and La Repubblica. The Company is backed by Cedar Fund, Greycroft Partners, Marker LLC and Redpoint Ventures. Wochit is based in New York, with offices in London and Tel Aviv.
