Bristol’s One Big Circle receives key investment from tech pioneers


Video technology and AI specialist, One Big Circle, has secured significant investment and growth thanks to the addition of David Harris and Toby Hughes to the board.

Both pioneers in the technology industry, David and Toby have joined the 15 strong One Big Circle team as Executive Chairman and Non-Executive Director respectively.

Established 3 years ago, and based in the iconic Engine Shed in central Bristol, One Big Circle is a trusted product and services supplier in the field of Intelligent Video, supporting organisations such as Network Rail, Transport for Wales and Siemens.

Using remote condition monitoring through real time video data collection, One Big Circle provides analytics for predictive railway maintenance producing tangible, time saving information. Using its in cab technology, One Big Circle’s product provides video footage instantly accessible online, supplying valuable data and insight remotely, transmitted directly from the train via 4G and stored using the Cloud.

David Harris comments: “The team at One Big Circle has done astonishingly well to grow from nothing to an established and profitable business by offering Intelligent Video Solutions tailored to the rail industry in a short period of time.  Toby and I aim to help lay the foundations for that second phase of growth and realising the vision of becoming a larger player with several channels to market for One Big Circle’s SaaS (software licensing and delivery) offering.  We’ll do this by supporting further development in machine learning and AI and aligning this with the funded areas of our chosen markets.”

Emily Kent Co-Founder, One Big Circle: “We are thrilled to have two such successful tech industry pioneers bring their expertise to our board. Both David and Toby will bolster the One Big Circle team by offering their wealth of experience to bring us to the next level of growth for our business.”

One Big Circle’s suite of powerful tools enables partners to continually transmit video footage via its AIVR (Automated Intelligent Video Review) device, which is instantly available online via its secure dashboard. The video footage supplies history of routes, links and reports from sections of routes as well as allowing partners to measure, mark-up and share information with key stakeholders.
