Comprimato story

Comprimato was born from a unique idea of leveraging the power of GPU’s for JPEG2000 video compression. What first started as a university project, led by Jiri Matela, quickly turned into a successful start-up.

In 2013, Comprimato was founded and offered a place in the South Moravian Innovation Centre, which is the most successful Czech technology incubator. The company accelerated even more after it received funding from Credo Ventures and Y Soft Ventures, a global company providing enterprise office solutions.

"Comprimato’s vision is to enable life-like viewing experience of video and images."
