Wibbitz 3.0: Bite-Sized News Has Never Sounded Better
TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
leading developer of text-to-video technologies, is announcing Wibbitz
3.0 for iOS with new never before seen features. The fully redesigned
app introduces responsive design to news summaries selecting different
content for different platforms. The new version also features real
voice-over narration for top news stories, as well as the option of a
short text summary.
Wibbitz' technology is based on algorithms that analyze the written body
of an article, extract the most interesting information from it, and
convert it into a highly engaging video format using Natural anguage
Processing (NLP) technologies. The technology allows users to absorb the
content of an article as a short and easily digestible video made up of
images, video clips, info-graphics, and text-to-speech.
The new version of Wibbitz features responsive selection of content and
optimizes the summaries for the relevant platform and user. For
instance, a summary video will look different and feature different
content when viewed on an iPhone (News - Alert) or viewed on a computer.
Additional new elements in Wibbitz 3.0 include:
Real Voice-Over Narration: Top news stories feature authentic narration
Reimagined Design: New sleek look, redesigned with card-like articles
Intuitive UX & Navigation: Easy to use and operate
Effortless Gestures: Swiping right/left to flip between articles
"Wibbitz 3.0 brings one of the most important concepts in modern web
design - responsiveness, to video news summaries for the first time.
We've created a technology that automates the process of video
production while also being contextually sensitive," said Zohar Dayan,
Wibbitz' Co-Founder & CEO.
