Sonic Foundry Shifts Directions
October 11, 2020
| Sonic Foundry has announced staff changes and reductions
and the closing of its Santa Monica, California office.
Rimas Buinevicius, CEO of Sonic Foundry, said the changes
are a result of the company's two recent acquisitions. In
April, Sonic Foundry completed its acquisition of STV Streaming
Media in a deal valued at $66 million. The company then
acquired International Image for approximately $24 million
in May. Sonic Foundry no longer intends to market its live
Web-casting services as a core component of its business,
but the services will be available upon client request.
The company plans to focus on acquiring and digitizing content,
as well as providing content management services. "Content
owners want to send their content to a one-stop shop for
all of the services they require to deliver it across multiple
platforms," said Buinevicius.
