Technology for videos

"You have no idea how much goes into ensuring a video streams when you click play"

And you don't even need to know. Samba Tech takes care of all the infrastructure needed to guarantee that your video plays, whenever, wherever, and however you want.

We were founded in the middle of the digital era and we believe that the online communications revolution involves video. As a result, we developed Samba Videos, a product to manage the digital logistics from start to finish, from the moment the media leaves the camera to its distribution to the target audience online.

Do you want to produce videos and use them to professionally communicate your message online? Samba Tech was born to help you!
