LONDON -- Red Bee Media, one of the world’s leading media management companies providing multi-platform technology and creative solutions to broadcasters, content rights holders, platform operators and brand owners, today announced the acquisition of TV Genius, an award-winning software company that specialises in cloud-based content discovery across the internet, TV and connected devices.

The strategic acquisition will blend Red Bee Media’s rich metadata services with TV Genius’ content discovery technology to bring a synchronised viewer experience across live and on demand TV with accurate search, personally relevant recommendations and enhanced TV guides across multiple platforms and devices. The deal demonstrates Red Bee Media’s commitment to providing clients with market leading end-to-end solutions to maximise and monetise content and establishes Red Bee Media as the UK’s first media management company to provide both broadcasters and platform operators alike with a holistic content discovery proposition.

“A critical requirement for monetising content across platforms and screens is to enable consumers to easily discover content in what is becoming an increasingly cluttered and fragmented marketplace”, said Bill Patrizio, CEO of Red Bee Media. “Accurate search and personally relevant recommendation is a key differentiator in addressing this challenge and this acquisition allows us to significantly enhance our current offering by investing in new technologies at the core of the future TV experience. TV Genius is at the forefront of content discovery and we’re excited to welcome them to the Red Bee Media family. Together, we intend to reinvent the EPG for online video.”
