Technology firm MainStreaming has raised $6 million in funding to stream games in Europe and the US.
Funding was led by Indaco Ventures, with the Sony Innovation Fund and United Ventures also contributing.
The technology platform enables the streaming of live and on-demand content. Sky Italia most notably utilises the solution.
Money raised from the investment will be used to expand the company's presence in the online video games market, as well as support its growth into cloud-based games through the user of its HyperNode tech.
“The online video industry is facing increasing pressure from customers, with broadcasters and online gaming providers facing particular challenges to ensure a consistent, high quality of service, particularly in live environments,” said MainStreaming CEO Antonio Corrado.
“With our technology specifically built for today’s streaming environment, MainStreaming is perfectly situated to offer broadcasters and online gaming providers the tools to deliver the highest quality of experience to their customers around the world.
“This latest investment will enable us to reinforce our position in the market and expand our reach across two priority regions, Europe and the United States.”
Cloud gaming will be a key topic of discussion at Pocket Gamer Connects Hong Kong on July 17th and 18th.
