Does this sound familiar?

You're on a call. You've joined remotely, whereas others have joined from the office. They forget to mute, resulting in terrible audio feedback.

At Riff, we've developed Magic Mic, a patent-pending WebRTC technology that eliminates this problem. Magic Mic can make your video-conferencing product instantly better. We are an early stage start-up and are looking to get acquired / sell Magic Mic.

MEET Magic Mic

Magic Mic is a patent-pending WebRTC technology that eliminates in-person feedback when multiple devices join a call from the same room. Magic Mic enables every participant to use their own device echo-free without muting or connecting to hardwareView Magic Mic in action:

To get a competitive edge, video conferencing providers need to upgrade their 'room experience', and adopt Magic Mic. We're looking to sell Riff and Magic Mic, would you be interested in learning more?


Why Magic Mic Matters

Post-pandemic, over 60% of knowledge workers are hybrid. All conversations become hybrid video conferences, with some joining from the office and some joining remotely.But 70% of workers find hybrid calls stressful (according to Clickshare). The biggest pain point is when multiple participants try to join a call from the same room, each on their own device. This results in terrible audio feedback, making the video call unworkable. To avoid that, participants have to connect to hardware, mute themselves or join from different rooms. All adding significant friction to the call set-up.The best solution is for every participant to join with their own computer, so everyone has equal presence and access to their multiplayer tools. Which is why we've spent 2 years developing Magic Mic: a patent pending WebRTC technology that eliminates in-person feedback when multiple devices join a call from the same room. Magic Mic enables every participant to use their own device echo-free without muting or connecting to hardware.


Meet The team

We set out to build Riff, a video workspace for hybrid teams, in 2020. We raised $1.5m in pre-seed money and developed Magic Mic following consistent user feedback that hybrid meetings on Zoom, Google Meet & co. were unworkable.
