We are on a mission to bring all legacy professional video content to the new digital world. Legacy archives and collections are locked away by old videotape formats keeping them from being discovered by new consumers. We provide lower cost alternatives to help archives and collections migrate your content on premise at, or near your facility. Meta Martis enables companies to transform physical assets to digital, connect and access them from anywhere, and create valuable metadata using machine learning & AI services.  Meet our team…
