Vobile, a technology company specializing in digital asset protection and transaction software, is expanding its operations with a new research and development center in San Felasco Tech City. The company, which last year moved into a temporary space in Gainesville’s Innovation District, has now leased a 10,000-square-foot facility to support its growth plans and accommodate its engineering and operating staff.
We are thrilled to establish a regional headquarters at San Felasco Tech City, said Britt Woodall, Vobile’s director of special projects. This move represents the beginning of our plans to expand our presence in Florida.
Vobile aims to hire hundreds of employees in the coming years, including engineers and operating staff from the University of Florida and the surrounding area. The company’s CEO, Yangbin Wang, is a UF graduate, having completed a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1993.
Vobile is best known for its patented video DNA fingerprinting technologies, which protect the copyright and increase distribution revenue for digital content asset owners, including movie studios, TV networks, and streaming platforms. Notable partners listed on Vobile’s website include Sony Music, Lionsgate, Paramount, Netflix, and Comedy Central. The company received an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering in 2017.
In addition to digital content protection, Vobile provides digital infrastructure services on Web3, a decentralized web platform based on public blockchains. The company also offers subscription and value-added-based software service models, enhancing the value of creative content.
We are excited to welcome Vobile to San Felasco Tech City, said Mitch Glaeser, CEO of Emory Group Companies and owner of SFTC. Their expertise in digital content protection will only further enhance the thriving tech community here.
Vobile’s new space, located at 13900 Tech City Circle, is part of San Felasco Tech City’s newly completed Phase 2. It will be customized to meet the company’s specific needs.
Vobile already has offices in California, Oregon, New York, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom, further solidifying its global presence.
San Felasco Tech City is home to over 50 companies, including Neurotronics, Anamar Environmental Consulting Inc., TIMCO Engineering, Nextgen Biologics, Fracture, and Novapproach Spine. The addition of Vobile’s cutting-edge technology and impressive client list further strengthens the innovative ecosystem at SFTC.
Overall, Vobile’s expansion into San Felasco Tech City marks an important milestone in the company’s growth trajectory. With its focus on digital asset protection and transaction software, Vobile is well-positioned to thrive in the dynamic tech industry while contributing to the development of the local tech community.
