San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 28,�2013
Weemo, a unique cloud-based video service provider, has completed a $3 million funding round, bringing the total investment in Weemo to more than $5 million. Existing investor Idinvest participated in the�round.
The capitalization will enable the company to accelerate the market adoption of its solutions. Weemo is already partnering with leading software vendors and service providers to deliver cost-effective embedded real-time video experiences built on�WebRTC.
Weemo's solution incorporates support for WebRTC, an initiative supported by Google and Mozilla, that enhances web browsers with rich�Real-Time Communications�capabilities. Weemo extends WebRTC's functionality with a multi-platform service that harnesses the company's proven and global enterprise-grade cloud infrastructure. The result is a B2B solution that responds to all business needs, including support for non-WebRTC browsers, native applications, screen sharing, and multi-point video�collaboration.
Through a simple click in any browser, or a tap on a mobile application, users can engage in live conversations involving one or more stakeholders from within their business applications. Simply put, Weemo makes immediate, ad hoc, in-app video collaboration much easier than relying on expensive video communication infrastructure or cumbersome third party video conferencing�technology.
With its API-centric approach, Weemo ties in to business workflows and embeds video collaboration through front-end web and mobile development frameworks. Weemo's solution addresses a gap in the enterprise social and business software marketplace by powering applications with an intuitive and easily-integrated set of APIs. Application vendors can utilize these APIs to deliver a seamless, collaborative user experience across multiple�platforms.
"We've made it incredibly simple to add over-the-top video communication services to a business application, and our partners are able to immediately realize the value of video collaboration as a de facto extension of their offerings," said�Thomas Cottereau, Weemo Co-Founder and�CEO.
