Making content creation easy

Everyone is a creator. The problem, however, is that today's tools get in the way of expressing our creativity fully. Especially when it comes to video, the gap between an idea and a video is wide enough that it's hard to even start.

Our software exists to bridge this gap. Anyone should be able to turn their ideas into a reality, and it shouldn't take heavyweight applications, expensive software, or years of experience. Making video should be easy, and our tools should improve our ideas, not get in the way of them.

Product

While every day brings a different challenge at a startup like Kapwing, our product focus is to build the best software for editing video online.

Building a product that millions of creators rely on is a challenge that we take seriously. Our focus is to deliver a quality, reliable experience that can match the power of a traditional desktop editor, but have all the benefits of being in the cloud.

Technology

Being a pure software company means that technology is at the core of our DNA. Enabling video editing in the browser means that we're constantly pushing the edge of what's possible.

Creating a product that can handle video at scale involves many moving pieces. We're using technologies like WebAssembly, FFmpeg, React, TensorFlow, and many other of today's latest tools to build our software.

Being online means that we can take video editing to the next level, and incorporate AI where it can help the creator. Today, we have several features like the ability to auto-generate subtitles, as well as a way to remove video backgrounds. We're always curious to see how we can push our technology as far as we can.

Content

With over 10 million views on our YouTube channel, we use the very product that we have built everyday. Our approach has always been to make good content and try new things.

Making software to create content and creating the content itself go hand in hand. Understanding today's creators helps us iterate and make better tools over time.
