A team of ex-Googlers have raised $5.5 million from a recent funding, to launch their upcoming generative AI video tool, ‘Vidiofy’ – specifically designed and targeted for brands and publishers.

The team headed by Anurvat Rao, pioneered a start-up company named ‘1Bstories’ with fellow ex-Google employees, with the goal of creating a ‘cutting-edge’ tool that aims to empower users in generating high-quality videos with AI.

Their flagship product, Vidiofy, is set to help businesses create engaging contents by allowing them to generate a wide variety of video clips from scratch, effortlessly.

With its intuitive and user-friendly interface, users could easily generate videos by simply writing a prompt in ChatGPT style, or just paste a link of an article to repurpose existing content. 

Brands and publishers can soon turn their written ideas and concepts into fully-formed videos that could boost their growth and increase their engagements.

Moreover, the tool features brand-safe video templates, and customizable AI-generated avatars and voice overs. This means that the target users could bring videos to life without having to edit.

“Our mission is to empower publishers and brands to seamlessly create captivating videos at a scale, leveraging generative AI technology,” the head of 1Bstories said in a release.

In a recent report, the start-up company received a lot of praise from their high-profile investors who openly expressed how fascinated they are with the integration of AI into a productive tool.

1Bstories is looking forward to telling 1 billion stories globally with the use of their own innovative technologies and products. 

Now, we can see how these companies adapt and integrate their tools and services with AI. Soon enough, all types of content generation would be easier and easier to make – even in a few clicks. This only proves how emerging and powerful AI is. But there could always be a downside to these advancements.
