ScoopWhoop acquires Touchfone Technology; announces video streaming and ad targeting service, Strmeasy

ScoopWhoop Media today announced the acquisition of  tech firm Touchfone Technologies, and with it their video streaming and ad targeting service, Strmeasy in a bid to engage video content consumers. The seamless video delivery platform solves the arduous task of streaming videos in low bandwidths, and has powered some of the most famous educational and entertainment video content companies in India.

Strmeasy is a platform that offers end to end video solution which helps businesses manage and deliver high-quality videos irrespective of the device or network the user is on. The platform’s unique technology advantage is its analytical and targeting capabilities, in addition to its data driven approach, which could be a useful tool for content owners to deliver, monetise and stream videos in a seamless manner.

The streaming service will also allow customised reports to advertorial offerings with demographic specific details. This will help enable the brand to not only focus their video content at targeted audience but also better their quality.

Speaking about the acquisition, Sattvik Mishra, Co-founder and CEO at ScoopWhoop Media, said, “We’re very excited to have Strmeasy technology come on board. Their unique technology is going to define the publishing spaces of ScoopWhoop, VagaBomb and Gazabpost, both from user acquisition and revenue point of view. We are looking forward to having Brahmayya, Mahesh and their incredibly talented technology team to script the next chapter of ScoopWhoop's success.”
