About

Vidrovr develops end-to-end video search and understanding solutions that help companies index and manage their live stream and archival video content. Vidrovr provides a solution that can be customized to match a companies business goals and needs. Machine Learning solutions are not the same as traditional SaaS solutions, and therefore should not be implemented or utilized in the same way. Vidrovr works directly with customers to understand the problems that they are trying to solve, and then implements with the customer a "managed" service that leverages Vidrovr's proprietary video understanding and search solution to meet those business needs. Our team has deep expertise in machine learning, video understanding, and multimedia retrieval from our time working at the world's leading machine learning companies and academic research labs.
