How to Make Lots of Web Video, Really Fast: Get Rid of (Most of) the Humans

All Things D

Heads up, professional video makers: Robots may be coming for your jobs.

We’ve already seen that software can replace human beings who used to write and edit news stories. Now, Wochit, an Israeli-born startup, is trying to do the same thing with video news.

And it’s quite possible that you’ve seen some of its work already: Wochit’s stuff is running on big portals like Yahoo, and on many smaller sites, via distributors like Grab Media.

Wochit can take prewritten stories from outlets like Reuters and turn them into videos by assembling an appropriate mix of images, clips and narration. Human beings touch the video twice during production — once when a “moderator” quickly scans the clip to make sure the basic elements are in the right place, and once when someone reads the voice-over copy.

Wochit said the entire process takes an average of 10 minutes, and that lets the company make hundreds of clips a day.Read More
