About BlueRush Inc.
BlueRush Inc. is uniquely positioned within the online video market. Video is the fastest growing online content segment with leading analysts predicting that over 80% of content will be consumed as video by 2021. BlueRush develops and markets a disruptive Interactive & Personalized Video Platform called IndiVideo. IndiVideo utilizes proprietary technology that allows for two unique advantages over competitor personalized video technologies;
