MediaWen International
is a B2B, SaaS French company providing online closed captioning, subtitling, and dubbing post production solutions for video content, founded in 2014 by Erwan de Kerautem and Philippe Anel.

MediaWen's core solution, STVHub, is a proprietary platform that allows enterprise (media and entertainment) as well as education (e-learning), health, finance, telecoms, government organizations to manage teams (internal and external) to access video files for closed captioning, subtitling, and dubbing solutions.

Online video becomes the most popular internet activity worldwide. According to the most recent data industry, the number of digital video viewers in the United States surpassed 200 million in 2015, 46% of all video plays in Q4 2015 were on mobile devices like tablets and smartphones (Ooyala).

The latest Limelight Networks survey shows that more than 83 percent of consumers watch on-demand video. “The world of online video is anything but predictable,” said Jason Thibeault, senior director of marketing at Limelight. The growth of multi sector video usages and the increase of worldwide circulation of video content stress the need for multilingual subtitling to access all audiences, including hearing impaired.

To answer the fast-growing challenge of video search for corporate, M&E, digital learning and all industries using video content, MediaWen International releases STVideoSearch, a video search engine based on subtitles used as source for indexing video. This allows users to search and retrieve video from their content, without having to edit keywords at a super-fast speed, with a customizable user interface.
