Vizual.ai, a Washington, DC-based software platform that creates and deploys optimized imagery for video and text based content, secured a round of funding of undisclosed amount.
Backers included Betaworks and the Guardian Media Group.
Led by Doug Boccia, CEO, Vizual.ai provides a cloud-based artificial intelligence software platform that creates and deploys optimized imagery for video and text based content to increase user engagement rates and create lift in overall page yield metrics for web publishers.
The platform automatically deploys static images and .gif formats for any site imagery including video thumbnails and text based content, increasing publisher click through rates and site monetization.
Vizual.ai is the first company to launch from Foundry.ai, the artificial intelligence studio created by industry veterans Jim Manzi and Ned Brody.
