Reputable news organizations must thoroughly verify the quality coming from third-party sources before making it available to the public: InVID sustain a platform for knowledge verification to identify breaking news and judge the validity of content and video files that are shared across the WEB


1.    Reducing misinformation threats
2.    Assuring for quality-driven information
3.    Guaranteeing the reliability and reputation of independent journalist / news outlets


Newsroom applications for publishers, newspapers, news organizations, journalists

Short Description

Quoting: “In video veritas, if we divert the old Latin saying: In video, there is truth!” Breaking news is now available on online video platforms thanks to the digital media revolution and the convergence of social media with broadband wired and wireless connectivity. News organizations that deliver information via Web streams and TV broadcast frequently use user-generated videos of breaking and developing news events shared by social media to illustrate the story. However, there is deception in video as well. Reputable news organizations are forced to thoroughly vet third-party content before publishing it due to easy access to increasingly sophisticated editing and content management tools and the ease with which false information spreads on electronic networks.

This limits their ability to break news quickly and raises costs during lean financial times. With the help of this platform, innovative newsroom applications will be made possible for broadcasters, news organizations, journalists, newspapers, and publishers to incorporate social media content into their news output without having to wonder whether they can trust the source or how to get in touch with the user to get permission. Verified and rights-cleared video content will be easily accessible for integration into breaking and developing news reports, thanks to this measure. InVID, which has been verified by actual customer pilots, will assist in defending the news industry against the dissemination of fakes, falsehoods, damage to reputation, and lawsuits.
