The pandemic has brought about a huge change in the way we hold meetings. Though video conferencing was already a popular form of communication, it has now become probably the only the form of conferencing. Trying to find information within your video recordings can be quite tedious. SparkVid is a management system for videos and audio that helps transcribe its content for easy retrieval. This time saving system makes organizing information much more easy.
Venture Mirror got to know more about SparkVid from its founder, Justin Barnett. Read on to know more!
What is the startup/product about? Give us a brief description of it.
SparkVid is a Content Management System for Videos and Audio. We use artificial intelligence to transcribe your videos and group them together based on relevancy. Once the video is in your account you will be able to search by keyword and jump straight to that part of the video. Download, subtitle, and convert videos all in your account.
How many co-founders are there? Please introduce them and their backgrounds. If there are multiple co-founders, please mention how did you meet one another
Justin Barnett, I am the founder of SparkVid. I am currently an engineer at Amazon and a former founding member of Hairdoo, an on demand beauty startup in LA.
How did you come up with the idea? What motivated you to do this?
I came up with this idea during Covid 19. I realized that most of my interactions were done over video. Finding things in text is easy but when you need to get a certain snippet of a video that can take hours. I thought that there got be a better way. I created SparkVid as a solution to that problem to let you organize and categorize your video data easily.
Who is your target market? Why do you think your product will appeal to them?
Business leaders. I think that when you run a business you want to make sure all your information is easily searchable at an instance. When most of your meetings are recorded on video you need to take extra time to watch, transcribe, and store that information. SparkVid is an automated solution to that and makes all your teams recordings available at a click of the mouse.
What are the future plans with the product/startup? Any new features you are planning on?
We are building a Zoom integration to make sure you can automatically sync your new recordings right after they’re done.
