Tvinci announced a $1.6 million first round of funding from Zohar Gilon and Ron Tamir’s Keidan Capital Group Monday. This is actually only $600,000 in new investment since last time we reported on the Tel Aviv-based video platform company, mid-funding raise, in January. At the time, we called it a hopeful little startup given how much it had done — scoring paying deals with MTV (s VIA.B) and Orange, and a reseller partnership with NDS — with so little resources.
Also, Whistlebox raised $2.3 million in Series A funding from King Street Capital, according to peHUB and paidContent. The Brooklyn, N.Y.-based company provides tools for sites to solicit video contributions for their users.
