The round was led by the company’s existing investors Kaedan Capital and Zohar Gilon, aided by new investor Trellas Enterprises. “Five years ago we began to advocate cross-device Pay-OTT TV as the future of video delivery for both TV operators and industry newcomers, and we are now truly seeing its widespread adoption,” notes CEO Ofer Shayo. “We now see a ‘second wave’ of OTT deployments – cable, satellite and telco TV operators that launched multiple video apps and Web sites over the past three or four years, now incorporating OTT video as part of their core TV offering, and looking to do more than just stream content to connected devices…With an established footprint in Europe, we are now gaining traction in Asia, Latin America and the US, and see these markets as huge potential addressable markets.”
