tech innovation for good

leaders in video evidence

our origin story:
helping survivors everywhere

VidaNyx has expanded to serve the needs of the +50 million cases that go through the U.S. court system every year. Our goal is to continually innovate to serve the Digital Video Evidence needs of organizations that help survivors of abuse, including human trafficking and domestic violence.

VidaNyx is the leading cloud-based Digital Video Evidence Management solution for public good, serving child advocacy, child protective services, prosecuting attorneys, and law enforcement organizations. Our initial focus started by serving the needs of the more than 900 Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) in the U.S. that help over 700,000 children survivors of abuse and neglect every year. We work in partnership with sector experts, advocates, law enforcement, the National Children Alliance, the National District Attorneys Association, and the judicial system; as well as with leading manufacturers of video recording systems.

We are mission-driven to accelerate speed to justice and access to healing. We ground our innovation and service in our commitment to urgent impact, collaboration, customer intimacy, and compassion for humanity.
