Raptr, a Mountain View, California-based optimization platform for PC gamers, raised $14m in financing.
Backers included Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) as well as existing investors Accel Partners, DAG Ventures, and Tenaya Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to expand newly launched Plays.tv and further grow operations.
Led by Dennis “Thresh” Fong, founder and CEO, Raptr has officially launched Plays.tv, which allows gamers to capture their most interesting gameplay moments and instantly share them to your Plays.tv feed and other social networks like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.
The Plays.tv client automatically starts recording during gameplay and uses hardware-accelerated video encoding to ensure minimal impact on performance. The client can optionally capture the user’s webcam (picture-in-picture) and can also automatically import videos recorded using other software such as OBS, Raptr, and Nvidia’s Shadowplay for easy editing and sharing. It works with any PC game.
