Sherman Oaks based online video animation company Fix8 has raised $3 million in a round lead by Vickers Financial Group.
We first wrote about Fix8 in May; the company offers a service that brings computer generated animation to the webcam. Fix8′s H.E.A.R.T. (Human Expression Analysis and Rendering Technology) digitizes human expressions, gestures, and movements via webcam, enabling users to create, interact, and share their creations across the web, TV, and soon mobile phones.
Fix8 users can broadcast their video creations over instant messaging services including MSN, Yahoo and Skype or save and post creations to YouTube, MySpace and FaceBook.
