Accel Pours $8M into Israeli RayV

rayv_logo.pngGlobes is reporting that RayV has raised $8M in Series B from Accel Partners.

While the company has been in stealth mode, and its site offers little information, sources have confirmed that RayV is developing a P2P live broadcasting offering. Evidentially, users will be able to create and broadcast video playlists at “high video quality”. Similar to Joost, RayV will require the installation of a client application.

To date, the company has been funded mainly by Ron Zuckerman who is among the founders of Magma Venture Partners (formerly Magnum Ventures). Zuckerman also co-founded Precise (acquired by Veritas) and Sapiens.
