Microsoft Acquires Video Editing Software Start-up Clipchamp

Microsoft has said to the news and made it very clear on Tuesday that it has acquired Clipchamp. What is it? Well, it is actually a start-up company that essentially deals with software that consumers and corporate workers can use to edit videos. The deal was made recently and the company was handed over to Microsoft. They have not made the terms and conditions of the deal public so we do not know how much money was spent to buy out this video editing software start-up company.

The technology is in line up with the year-long effort that Microsoft has been making in order to increase and widen the productivity software offerings. This is for both the individual consumers as well a the corporate users. So it makes perfect sense that they will go ahead to buy and acquire this company. This fits in right with the plans that they have made known to the media.
