Generate professional-looking AI videos from text in minutes.


Synthesia is a software company founded in 2017 by a team of researchers and entrepreneurs from UCL, Stanford, TUM and Cambridge. Our mission is to power the video-first internet: replace cameras with code & make everyone a creator. 

The world of content is rapidly changing. In recent years ‘synthetic media’ has emerged as a catch-all term used to describe video, image, text and voice that has been fully or partially generated by computers. The ability for AI-driven systems to generate audiovisual content is, in our minds, one of the most exciting developments enabled by recent progress in deep learning.
