About Pexip

Pexip simplifies video communication across borders, businesses and platforms, enabling everyone to be seen, heard and included.


Our story

Built on an ambition to break down communication barriers

Pexip is the result of a merger in 2019 between a company called Pexip (founded in 2012), specializing in video infrastructure and Videxio (founded in 2011), a cloud video service provider. The respective companies were started by a group of visionary industry veterans.

Based on their extensive experience from video conferencing, they saw the need to break down the barriers which were making enterprise video conferencing expensive, and difficult to use, manage and scale.

Pexip offers both self-hosted and as-a-service deployment options for enterprise video conferencing, built on the core Pexip Infinity technology.

Technology and workplace habits have come a long way in the years since the original companies were founded but the challenge of connecting devices and platforms remains.

Pexip solves this by providing best-in-class interoperability, including Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and Google Hangouts Gateway interop, video system device registration and a world-class meeting and calling service.

Video communication is still complex but with Pexip, it just works.

Pexip is where teams and technology meet, simplifying video conferencing experiences and workflows. We help break down the barriers to improve video communication across teams and platforms.
