Create your own AI avatar – Our Magic AI tool inspires at Media for you

We had the pleasure of being part of the impressive career experience fair at “Medientage München”, where we showcased something truly extraordinary in our space: our own video AI tool.
 
"Magic AI" transforms your photo into a speaking avatar capable of moderating your videos. Currently, the tool is already being used for news moderation at Chip. Deceptively realistic moderation avatars inform viewers about current events without the need for expensive studio recordings.
 
Mark Luxenhofer originally aspired to become a film director but instead, with his interdisciplinary team at BurdaForward, developed the AI-based tool whose potential extends far beyond creating news videos. What will be possible in the coming months remains to be seen.

What's behind it all?

The Magic AI tool is based on three existing tools:

  1. ChatGPT for the texts
  2. D-ID for the avatars of real people
  3. EvenLabs for the voiceovers

At Burda, we are always on the lookout for the latest technology trends and new team members willing to test them with us. Our IT&Tech teams are excited to welcome innovative out-of-the-box thinkers. Explore our career opportunities in IT&Tech.
