Chilean start-up revolutionizes global video sharing

Hadza brings together footage of an event from all over the world and allows it to be seen simultaneously on the same screen.  

The rise of the internet, social media, and communication technology has revolutionized the way we see the world, but up until now, many have been stumped by how to make sense of such an ocean of information.
With a promise to forever change the experience of watching videos online, a team of Chilean entrepreneurs recently launched a new app at a conference in Silicon Valley that aims to address precisely this problem.
Specifically designed to meet the drastic changes in people’s attitudes towards filming and sharing videos, the app, called Hazda, gathers videos of a event from around the world and displays them simultaneously on a single screen.
Once it’s on your smartphone, the team behind Hazda says that world events like rock concerts, royal weddings, revolutions and uprisings will never be the same again.
The Hadza team is part of the third generation of Start-Up Chile, a program that offers financial and developmental support and contacts to Chilean entrepreneurs and their counterparts from around the world.
The government-backed program aims to help Chile realize its ambition of becoming the Silicon Valley of Latin America.
Fittingly, Hadza was released at the 2012 Launch Conference held in the San Francisco Design Center, the prestigious event that draws experts, entrepreneurs and innovators from the world of technology and design.
Sharing the stage with the Hadza’s team this year was David Cohen, the co-founder and CEO of TechStars, Dave McClure, the founding partner of 500 Startups, and Israeli President Shimon Peres, among others.
Ranked 7th out of 121 Latin American Startups in 2012 by Pulso Social, the Hadza system is based on an original algorithm, and was specifically designed for smartphones.
It is available for free download at the Apple App Store and Android Market.
