Web video distribution and measurement startup TubeMogul just emailed to say it raised $3 million in Series A funding from Trinity Ventures. The Emeryville, Calif.-based company has now raised a total of $5.2 million, including an earlier seed round.
TubeMogul has grown up alongside episodic video content, and it now has 75,000 users with millions of streams. It helps publishers syndicate and analyze their content across the oh-so-many web video sites and platforms. Customers include CBS Interactive, PBS, Ford Models, Universal McCann, Avenue A, Conde Nast, FreemantleMedia, Warner Bros, The Onion, Next New Networks, Revision3, Red Bull, Intel, Cisco, Home Depot, Green Peace and the White House.
To expand on its extensive relationship building — this company has a LOT of goodwill among web video makers — TubeMogul also acquired startup Illumenix in October to better compete in video tracking technology with companies like Visible Measures. TubeMogul is currently working to deploy rich audience and engagement analytics, and plans to be cash-flow positive before the end of this year.
