during covid, video became critical infrastructure for all social interactions
one company that's indexed on its rise is video api @MuxHQ which is positioning itself to become an 'aws for video'
social's been on a trajectory towards live video and synchronicity with increased bandwidth and frequency of communication per @arjunsethi & @artzandy
covid accelerated and mainstreamed that transformation of the web
traditional broadcast live video is one use case, but the upside case for @MuxHQ lies in its ability to enable custom, interactive live video
that has mux betting on developer creativity, which has been a solid bet over the last 15 years.
mux has a usage-based pricing model which makes it easy for developers to get started and means that it has really high net revenue retention as customers scale, reportedly 160%.
mux is also used by other video api players like wistia, vimeo ($VMEO) who offer programmatic backend video hosting. daily.co uses mux in its video chat api.
that means that mux is something of a video utility used throughout the ecosystem
folks interested in the long-term secular trend of video would be wise to pay attention to @MuxHQ
