COMMONTARY was born out of MyTeamCalls LLC, which was established in 2014 with the goal of providing team-focused, professional quality alternative commentary for sports broadcasts. During our Beta, broadcasting teams called each game of the 2014 season for the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, as well as select games of the 2014 World Series.
In order to deliver a completely seamless content experience that didn't require users to sync our audio with their game video via a DVR, we began to develop a technology to automatically sync our audio with a user's video. We wanted this technology to listen to a video feed and accompanying alternate audio source, listen to an end user's video feed, and then sync the alternate audio with their video. Since it was for live sports broadcasts, we wanted the technology to deliver our audio in real time, and to constantly be listening and syncing so as to allow for repeated rewinding and pausing.
The end result is COMMONTARY, a new alternate audio and video syncing technology with uses that stretch from live TV broadcasts to recorded entertainment, social media, education, language translation, business-to-business communication, and more. Rather than create our own content, we are focused on getting our technology into the hands of media outlets, back-end video streaming engines, and media talent who are interested in engaging with audiences in new and dynamic ways.
MyTeamCalls LLC dba COMMONTARY is self-funded and currently exploring opportunities for outside investment and fundraising.
