The online video platform lets publishers and marketers host, stream, measure and monetize their video content. Content creators, marketers and enterprise customers like Showtime Sports use Episodic to deliver video to the Web and mobile devices.
The purchase of Episodic marks Google's fifth acquisition so far this year. Terms of the deal were not released.
On The Eposodic Blog, Lovinsky and Cudich wrote, "At Episodic, we have always felt that these are the very early days of online video and that there is far more growth to be had. To put it in perspective, our industry is barely 15 years old. We've just received our learner's permit, we still can't drive without adult supervision and we're certainly not old enough to buy a drink...legally."
Larry Kless of ReelSEO interviewed Lovinsky at Streaming Media West in November 2009. Check out the video interview below.
