Google has acquired Omnisio, a social video mashup service which lets its users splice and edit online videos found on YouTube, Google Video and Blip.TV, adding balloons and annotations to the videos while also mixing segments together in a remix type setting.
Omnisio, a Y Combinator company, will now join the YouTube family to allow YouTube users the availability of their remixing service :
The Omnisio team has tremendous technical expertise when it comes to advanced video tools and having this kind of talent at YouTube should help us further explore ways to enhance your YouTube experience.
From Omnisio :
Together we’ll apply what we’ve learned about the space, and we’ll work to develop innovative products and features for the YouTube community. We believe we’ve only scratched the surface in terms of what’s possible with online video, and we are really looking forward to taking the video viewing — and creating — experience to the next level.
