LipDub AI is the world’s first completely automated lip-sync technology to achieve Hollywood-caliber results. In addition to delivering market-leading quality of visuals, LipDub is a scalable solution that visually transforms one minute of video footage into any language in seconds and in under 20 minutes of compute time for Hollywood-grade outputs.

The proprietary LipDub AI technology uses deep neural networks to seamlessly sync actors’ on-screen lip movements to any dubbed audio file, providing an elevated viewing experience to audiences worldwide watching non-native content. This groundbreaking approach to dubbing content is expected to help Hollywood studios and advertisers drive meaningful leaps in engagement and viewership. Moreover, it will enable creatives to create globally appealing content that truly transcends borders.

According to the MARZ executive leadership team, Jonathan Bronfman – Chief Executive Officer, Matt Panousis – Chief Operating Officer, and Lon Molnar – Chief Creative Officer, “The current standards for passable localization are far too low. Viewers around the world deserve to watch foreign-made content that looks great, just as studios and advertisers endeavor to create content that has global appeal. LipDub AI represents the next logical step in the evolution of dubbing, and it’s profoundly rewarding for MARZ to be spearheading that change.”

The LipDub research team is led by MARZ Chief Scientist and world-renowned professor at the Department of Computer Science at Tel-Aviv University, Danny Cohen-Or, an ACM fellow and The Isaias Nizri Chair in Visual Computing. He leads the MARZ AI research team alongside longtime collaborator Ali Mahdavi-Amiri, Assistant Professor at Simon Fraser University. Together they successfully conducted the research for Vanity AI, the first AI solution developed by MARZ. Vanity AI was launched in January 2023 and has already been used in over 45 Hollywood productions.

“With LipDub, we have succeeded in leveraging advanced generative AI to create photorealistic, lip-synced videos that are dynamic and temporally consistent,” said Cohen-Or.
