Thought RIM was done adding companies to their list of acquisitions? Well looks like they are not done acquiring talent. Today they announced on their BlackBerry blog that the team from JayCut just has just joined RIM.
I never heard of them before but RIM had this to say on their blog:
“Today we are pleased to announce that JayCut has joined Research In Motion (RIM). We’re excited that the JayCut team is bringing their expertise in video editing and cloud-based services to the BlackBerry platform.
JayCut is based out of Sweden and operates a premier online video editor that they have licensed to a variety of companies and websites.
The BlackBerry PlayBook offers users premium multimedia features, including dual HD cameras for video capture and video conferencing, HDMI output and high resolution video playback. By working with JayCut to add video editing capabilities to the BlackBerry platform we can further enrich our customers’ multimedia experience with BlackBerry.
Looks like RIM is finally going to offer competitive media capability to the BlackBerry platform.
We welcome this move from RIM and JayCut.
