Sherman Oaks based online video animation company Fix8 has taken $2 million Series A from SK Telecom.
Fix8 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 mobile phones.
As part of the deal SK Telecom (Korea’s leading telco) awarded Fix8 a contract “to lead the development of SKT’s 3D avatar animation technology to enhance mobile and online communications.”
