Personally I wasn’t really expecting RIM to be doing any purchasing right now, but guess I was wrong. RIM has announced their latest purchase, JayCut. JayCut will bring video editing and cloud-based services to the BlackBerry platform. You can read up on JayCut at jaycut.com. Here’s what RIM’s CTO David Yach had to say:
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.
