Run Distillers

Our passionate team consists of young and brilliant minds: a blend of academic scientists, geeky developers and experienced entrepreneurs. All of them share the urge to work with exciting, new technologies, and deliver value to our customers. 30 distillers who work hard every day to revolutionize the video and media industry.

Why distillers? Our co-founders, both fans of Whisky, decided to name their new company Media Distillery because we are taking all the nice elements from Media (video) and making a very tasty product, such as Whisky.
