Vochi, a computer vision based video editing and effects app has raised $1.5 million in a seed funding project. The start-up that operates out of Belarus is a leading and a successful company that designs effects and video editing apps for mobile apps. On the lead is a Ukraine based Genesis Investment, backer BetterMe and Jiji. Second is pre-seed funding from Bulba Ventures that took place in April. Bulba is where the CEO and founder of Vochi previously worked as a product analyst.
While acknowledging that video content is a boom, especially for short videos including TikTok, Lesun aims at building an app that will make it stand out. This will make the creative video editing process simple. Furthermore, with the help of a video-based segmentation algorithm, the app also allows users to edit single objects in your videos. This further opens up opportunities for you to create unique videos. With the app, you can also mix different styles, play with scenarios, in real-time that also helps to visualize how the final clip will look like, especially before downloading high-quality copies.
“As mobile content production and consumption increases, there’s also an increasing demand for content creation tools,” Lesun said. “This is where we can bring value to content makers-be it professionals and amateurs-by delivering a video editing platform with as many tools and effects as possible. We see it as a content editing studio in a user’s pocket.”
With the app, the use of computer vision and its effects, filters, stickers and other features in a video, you can easily differentiate what Vochi has in place compared to its competitors in the market. “The app uses object segmentation algorithm that allows users to edit single objects in the video,” the founder explains. The app will, therefore, allow you to apply quality effects on every object in 1080p videos within the shortest time possible.
