Bengaluru-Based AI Startup Acquired by Software Giant

Adobe has acquired Rephrase.ai, a Bengaluru-based AI startup that provides a text-to-video generation platform. Rephrase.ai helps influencers and video creators create professional video clips. The deal will see a majority of Rephrase.ai’s employees join Adobe.

In an internal memo to employees, Adobe’s senior vice president and general manager of Creative Cloud, Ashley Still, stated that Rephrase.ai’s team will extend the company’s generative video capabilities.

“With the help of the Rephrase.ai team’s experience-building text-to-video generator tools and generative AI video and audio technology, we will be able to deliver more value to our customers more quickly while also expanding our generative video capabilities within our market-leading creative applications,” the memo read.

The acquisition is noteworthy for a few reasons. It is Adobe’s first-ever acquisition in the generative AI and video-tooling industries. It also makes Rephrase.ai the first Indian startup to be acquired by Adobe.

It is expected that Adobe will integrate Rephrase.ai’s technology into its Creative Cloud suite of products, which includes popular tools like Photoshop and Premiere Pro.

Financial Details of the Deal

The financial details of the deal have not been disclosed. However, it is reported that investors in Rephrase.ai will receive a full cash exit, and the founders will get paid in cash and Adobe stock.

What is Generative AI?

Generative AI is a type of AI that can generate new content, such as text, images, and music. Generative AI is still in its early stages of development, but it has the potential to revolutionize many industries.

What is the Future of Rephrase.ai?

It is unclear what the future holds for Rephrase.ai as a separate company. However, it is likely that Adobe will integrate Rephrase.ai’s technology into its Creative Cloud suite of products. This would give Adobe’s customers access to a powerful new tool for creating video content.

Overall, the acquisition of Rephrase.ai is a positive development for both companies. Adobe gains access to cutting-edge technology, while Rephrase.ai’s employees have the opportunity to work on a larger scale.
