Kiba Launches World's First Automated Home Video Maker

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 12, 2016) -

Core New Facts

  • Kiba today announced the launch of the world's first automated home video maker.
  • Created for families, Kiba identifies, curates and captures your best moments and memories at home effortlessly.
  • Think of Kiba as your own personal director and editor, giving you a director's cut of the best moments each day while letting you be in the frame.

Product Features & Design:

  • Kiba's design is simple, elegant and easy to use and you can set up Kiba in less than a minute.
  • It's a hands-free device that enables voice interactions -- you can control and interact with Kiba through voice commands.
    • For example, you can say, "Kiba Selfie" to take a high-resolution selfie, "Kiba record" to record a 30 second video and "Kiba remember" to remember 30 seconds of the last spontaneous moment.
    • You can also use "Kiba ON" and "Kiba OFF" commands to control Kiba's settings.
  • Additionally, you can use the Kiba mobile app to use Kiba during planned moments like for a birthday party or a family dinner -- just set the name and duration of the event in the Kiba mobile app and Kiba will do the rest.
  • Your clips appear on the Kiba app so sharing moments with your social network is a breeze.
  • Available in four colors, Kiba comes in Pearl White, Giggling Green, Serene Slate and Tangerine Orange.
  • Kiba also stores your top moments to a secure cloud but you can also opt to store the clips locally on your Kiba device.

How Kiba works

  • Kiba sifts through hundreds of interactions to pick out the most interesting and important moments, and then intelligently picks the top moments.
  • If you were to record the entire day, it would require gigabytes of data and it is impossible to find truly interesting moments. About 90 percent of daily video data is uninteresting -- for example, someone walking across the room, setting up a table or doing laundry.
  • Kiba ranks each video clip according to the patented Joy Ranking Algorithm giving you the best five memories; it compiles clips into a one minute collage of your moments to view and share.
  • Using computer vision, machine learning and signal processing techniques, Kiba intelligently distills unwanted data and identify the top moments.
  • Kiba comes with a free mobile app for iOS and Android, a long-lasting battery and a mount so you can place it anywhere in the home.

Other facts:

  • Kiba is available for pre-orders at the special introductory price of $199, which includes one year's worth of free cloud storage.
  • Following the pre-orders, Kiba will be available for MSRP of $329 and will ship in spring 2016.
  • Kiba has been also recognized as a CES 2016 Innovation Award honoree in "Portable Media Players and Accessories" and "High Performance Home Audio/Video" categories.
  • Kiba was founded by Raji Kannan and Pranav Mishra -- the team and its advisors have more than 100 patents in imaging and deep domain expertise, launching exciting innovations to market.

Quotes
Raji Kannan, CEO and co-founder, Kiba
"Home is a social place with many special everyday moments. Most often when I am capturing these moments, I am not in the frame or by the time I reach for the camera, the magic of the moment is lost. I might be away from home, still I don't want to miss my little daughter's moments. Her innocent talk pretending to be a chef, her spontaneous dance moves and her little pranks with our dog make my day. Plus, I have no time to go through hours of video footage and edit the best moments. We built Kiba to record and share home videos effortlessly with family and friends -- it's hands-free and easy to use and lives to its promise of no-editing. Kiba celebrates life and everyone's unique stories."
