Beamr Imaging Ltd.

General Information

We are an innovator of video encoding, transcoding and optimization solutions that enable high quality, performance, and unmatched bitrate efficiency for video and images. (Incorporated in Israel)

With our Emmy®-winning patented technology and award-winning services, we help our customers realize the potential of video encoding and media optimization to address business-critical challenges. Our customers include Tier One over-the-top (OTT) content distributors, video streaming platforms and Hollywood studios that rely on our suite of products and expertise to reduce the cost and complexity associated with storing, distributing and monetizing video and images across devices.

Our cloud video storage solutions enable our customers to save up to 50 percent on video storage costs.

Our current product line is mainly geared to the high end, high quality media customers and we count among our enterprise customers Netflix, Snapfish, ViacomCBS, Wowza, Microsoft, VMware, Genesys, Deluxe, Vimeo,, Citrix, Walmart, Photobox, Antix, Dalet, and other leading media companies using video and photo solutions.  We currently derive a significant portion of our revenue from a limited number of our customers. For the years ended Dec. 31, 2021, and Dec. 31, 2020, our Top Ten customers (which in 2021 included Netflix, Snapfish, ViacomCBS and Wowza) in the aggregate accounted for approximately 62% of our revenues. In the six months ended June 30, 2022, our Top Ten customers in the aggregate accounted for approximately 58% of our revenues.

Due to the high cost and complexity of deploying our existing software solutions and the long sales lead times, we have made a strategic decision to focus our resources on the development and commercialization of our next-generation product, the Beamr HW-Accelerated Content Adaptive Encoding solution, a software-as-a-service, or SaaS, solution deployed in the cloud that is designed, based on our own internal testing, to be up to 10x more cost efficient than our existing software-based solutions, resulting in reduced media storage, processing and delivery costs. 

At the heart of our patented optimization technology is the proprietary Beamr Quality Measure, or BQM, which is highly correlated with the human visual system. BQM is integrated into our Content Adaptive Bitrate, or CABR, system, which maximizes quality and removes visual redundancies resulting in a smaller file size. The BQM has excellent correlation with subjective results, confirmed in testing under ITU BT.500, an international standard for rigorous testing of image quality. The perceptual quality preservation of CABR has been repeatedly verified using large-scale crowdsourcing-based testing sessions, as well as by industry leaders and studio “golden eyes.”

We currently license three core video and image compression products that help our customers use video and images to further their businesses in meaningful ways: (1) a suite of video compression software encoder solutions, including the Beamr 4 encoder, Beamr 4X content adaptive encoder, Beamr 5 encoder and the Beamr 5X content adaptive encoder, (2) Beamr JPEGmini photo optimization software solutions for reducing JPEG file sizes, and (3) Beamr Silicon IP block, a hardware solution for integration into dedicated video encoding ASICs, GPUs, and application processors.

According to Fortune Business Insights, the global cloud video storage market is projected to grow from $7.3 billion in 2021 to $13.5 billion in 2025 and to $20.9 billion by 2028, at a compound annual growth rate, or CAGR, of 16% during the forecast period. The fact that video data is often required to be stored and accessed for long periods brings about the problem of lifetime costs associated with the efficient storing and managing of data. While the upfront cost might appear manageable over a period, the rise in data volumes results in the need to pay more in the future to keep the data in the cloud.

In today’s environment, with deployment of media and entertainment, user-generated content, enterprise video, agricultural technology (AgTech) and industrial solutions, autonomous vehicles, surveillance and smart cities, the usage of video and its storage on public cloud platforms is expected to increase exponentially. For example, according to Grand View Research, the global enterprise video market size is expected to reach $33.72 billion by 2027, a CAGR of 11.6% from 2020 to 2027. According to Valuates Reports, the global video surveillance storage market is expected to grow to $33.65 billion by 2026 from $12.21 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 18.4% (with currently over 1 billion surveillance cameras installed worldwide, according to IHS Markit). As such, we believe that there is an unmet need for video storage optimization solutions that significantly reduce the costs of long-term storage.

(Note: Beamr Imaging Ltd. upsized its IPO at pricing on Feb. 27, 2023, to 1.95 million shares – up from 1.4 million shares in the prospectus – and priced the IPO at $4.00 – $1.00 below its assumed IPO price in the prospectus – to raise $7.8 million. Beamr’s IPO raised $300,000 more than the estimated IPO proceeds under its terms in the prospectus, as a result of the upsizing. Beamr Imaging Ltd. cut its IPO’s terms in an F-1/A filing dated Feb. 21, 2023: The company is now offering 1.4 million shares – down from 3.0 million shares – at $5.00 – the same assumed IPO price as before – to raise $7.0 million. That change represents a 53.3 percent reduction in the estimated IPO proceeds – to $7.0 million from $15.0 million under the previous terms.)

(Note: In an F-1/A filing dated Feb. 21, 2023, Beamr Imaging Ltd. added insider selling with the registration of 1.8 million shares to be sold by selling stockholders: “In addition, we have registered an aggregate of 1,800,000 ordinary shares for resale by certain shareholders, or the Selling Shareholders, by means of a separate prospectus. The Selling Shareholders may offer and sell the ordinary shares covered by such separate prospectus from time to time in a number of different ways and at varying prices. We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of any of the 1,800,000 ordinary shares for resale by the Selling Shareholders.)

(Background Note: Beamr Imaging Ltd. revised its IPO in an F-1/A filing dated Aug. 15, 2022, by increasing the number of shares – to 3.0 million ordinary shares, up from 1.36 million ordinary shares (1,363,636 ordinary shares) – and cutting the assumed IPO price to $5.00, down from a price range of $10.00 to $12.00 – to keep the estimated IPO proceeds at $15.0 million.)
