KIT Digital, the publicly-traded, Prague-based online video services provider, with extensive operations globally, has announced the acquisition of two big U.S. companies: San Francisco-based Kyte Digital and New York-based KickApps.
Also part of the acquisition is Paris-based Kewego.
With the acquisitions of KickApps and Kyte, KIT will get two well established U.S. players with prestige clients including Turner, NBC Universal and many others. Among many assets, they will acquire Kyte’s advanced mobile platform technology; with KickApps, a sophisticated social media engine for video.
Last year, we sat down with KIT CEO Kaleil Isaza Tuzman for an overview of the company and it goals. We have published it here.
In November, I interviewed KickApps CEO Alex Blum. We have published this interview at the bottom of this page. Blum, a veteran of AOL and other companies, will become KIT’s COO, the company said.
