A Taste of SnapStream's Techxas Culture

SnapStream team

There is a near unlimited amount of video content out there: 24/7 news channels, breaking news events, sports, talk shows, awards galas, entertainment shows, and so much more. Especially in today’s fast paced environment, it’s hard to wade through everything to find what matters most, when it matters most.

That’s why our mission is to help organizations tell great stories by easily finding memorable moments, wherever they are. Our belief is that these moments or clips are at the heart of modern storytelling and effectively drive today's culture. With SnapStream, users can quickly search their recorded and live content to create and share the clips that matter most.

SnapStream has become an indispensable part of many organizations’ workflows and their content and communication strategies. We’re how The Daily Show finds clips to tell their hilarious take on the news. We’re how Politico rapidly posts newsworthy moments on their social media channels. We’re how the United States Senate media teams effectively respond to stories being aired on broadcast news. We’re how the Atlantic Council turns in-depth policy analysis into consumable newsworthy events.

For organizations with broadcast television regulatory compliance needs around loudness and closed captioning and those who need to monitor advertising proof-of-performance, we also offer Moco: Compliance Monitoring by SnapStream. Through an agreement with Verizon Digital Media Services in 2019, SnapStream became the official transition partner for the end-of-life Volicon product.

Both products are backed by our responsive engineering team and our dedicated, 24/7 US-based support team.

SnapStream is based in Houston, TX. We’re a team of news-junkies, cinephiles, media aficionados, and wannabe live streaming influencers who are all really good at what we do and come together to do work that we love.
