Almost two years ago I covered RayV, a provider of optimized streaming video services turn-key solutions (see "VAS Announcements: RayV Exposes Turn Key Video Streaming to MNOs and ISPs" - here).
Orr Hirschauge (ex. The Marker) reports to the Wall Street Journal that "Yahoo is looking to bolster its Web-video technology with another acquisition. The Internet portal is close to finalizing an acquisition of video-streaming startup RayV Inc., according to people familiar with the matter .. RayV may help Yahoo improve the technology underlying its video efforts. Founded in 2006, RayV spent its first six years quietly developing software to improve high-definition video streaming over the Web and to mobile devices. Its software suite, launched in 2012, includes a content-distribution network, a content-management system and digital-rights management"
