The Tribeca Film Festival and Disruptor Foundation has awarded Wochit the Gutenberg Prize, as a part of the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards for its disruptive technology in the field of journalism. Producing journalistic videos has traditionally been expensive and labor intensive. Wochit provides a unique solution for digital video creation at a time when the consumer demand for online video is exploding. Whether a publisher’s goal is to put a highly relevant video on every web page or to insert--in real time--video into social media, Wochit’s new video creation platform makes it all possible by automating 95% of the drudgery. The cloud based video creation platform enables publishers, multi-channel networks and brands to instantly react to any story and economically scale.
Wochit, also a finalist in this week’s Digiday’s Publishing Awards for most Disruptive Technology, has a patented solution which works hand in hand with customers, empowering humans with the final editorial and narration control.
The Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards celebrates honorees whose ideas have broken the mold to create significant impact beyond the original technological and industrial realms into the fields of healthcare, education, international development, politics and advocacy, media, the arts and entertainment. This year is the fifth edition of the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards created by The Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), in association with noted Harvard Business School Professor Clay Christensen and Tribeca’s Craig Hatkoff, who are co-founders of the Disruptor Foundation.
