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.”
The new funding comes on top of $3 million Fix8 raised in October 2007 from Vickers Financial Group. See our May 2007 review here for more.
