Google acquires Anvato, a media streaming and monetization platform for broadcasters

Anvato’s technology allows its customers, which include the likes of NBCUniversal, MSNBC, CBS, Univision, HGTV, Bravo and Fox Sports, to power live streams, edit videos in the cloud, insert ads and handle pay-per-view, TV Everywhere and subscription payments. With that, it offers an end-to-end service for video publishing and monetization, something Google’s own platform doesn’t currently offer. – Frederic Lardinois, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/29lbIhA
