Adobe acquires Auditude to address video advertising

The deal will allow Adobe to offer a more complete video solution, it said

Adobe Systems has acquired privately owned Auditude in order to boost its video offerings with an advertising platform, the company said on Tuesday.

Video advertising is a booming market, according to data from market research company comScore.

Auditude streamed 344 million of the 6.8 billion online video ads that Americans watched in September, according to comScore. That made Auditude the seventh-largest source of such ads in the U.S., and the fifth-largest video advertising network. Tremor Video was the biggest network that month, with 811 million ads, and Hulu.com was the largest source overall, with over 1 billion. A year earlier, Hulu streamed 794 million of the 4.3 billion video ads viewed in the U.S.

Auditude offers an integrated advertising system for video on PCs, smartphones, tablets, connected TVs and other products in the home, according to the company website.

Following the acquisition, Adobe plans to combine Auditude's platform with its own Flash Media Server and Pass products, which are used to stream video content and authenticate users.

The company also plans to integrate Auditude with the Adobe Digital Marketing Suite, which already includes analytics and optimization products.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
