Research In Motion is to buy JayCut, a Sweden-based online video-editing specialist that already licenses its technology to a variety of companies and websites.

Financial details have not been revealed, but RIM's chief technology officer David Yach spelled out a few details on the Official BlackBerry Blog on Friday as to how JayCut will be involved with RIM. He said that JayCut will be involved in integrating cloud-based services to the BlackBerry platform.

"The BlackBerry PlayBook offers users premium multimedia features, including dual HD cameras for video capture and video conferencing, HDMI output and high resolution video playback," Yach wrote. "By working with JayCut to add video-editing capabilities to the BlackBerry platform we can further enrich our customers' multimedia experience with BlackBerry."
