[Gif animé] Vimeo acquires the start-up Echograph

by bold-lichterman

The online video platform Vimeo has just acquired the start-up Ultrasound for an undisclosed amount, reports VentureBeat.

Like the Cinémagram application, Echograph publishes a mobile application that allows you to create animated GIFs from short 5-second videos.

So far the app was priced at $ 2.99, but is now free.

With this operation, Echograph founder Nick Alt will take on the role of Vice President Mobile within Vimeo.

This acquisition comes a few weeks after the official launch of the Vine app, previously acquired by Twitter.
