Animoto is a service that specializes in cloud-based video creations from photos, video clips, and music turning them into video slideshows. Founded in 2006 as a solution to the very low quality videos found on the internet, this system’s Patented Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology, gives its users the chance to turn their photos, video clips and music into very professional and amazing video slideshows.

During the 2008 SXSW Interactive Festival, Animoto launched a Facebook application. In 2008, the application witnessed very rapid growth with over 750, 000 people signing up within three days after the Animoto’s Facebook application was launched. The popularity of Animoto got to a point where about 25,000 people subscribed to the system in one hour. This was the reason behind Animoto’s decision to make use of Amazon’s cloud computing servers which is aimed at meeting the growing number of Animoto’s users.

Animoto’s iPhone app launched in June 2009 allowed users to make their own videos using pictures on their mobile phones. As at January, 2013, Animoto has hit a subscriber base of 6 million and acquired its patent for Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology.
