Polystream lands $1.5m in seed funding

Surrey-based company is set to deliver its HD streaming solution for games and 3D applications

Polystream, an interactive streaming technology company, has secured $1.5m in seed funding from London Venture Partners and Initial Capital.

Founded by Adam Billyard and Bruce Grove, Surrey-based Polystream helps publishers, developers, content creators and marketers deliver content and applications direct to desktops, tablets and mobile.

The company claims its technology works across public or private cloud services, enabling its clients to offer playable game demos, beta trials or entire games without capacity constraints or the need for dedicated hardware.

The seed funding will fuel the delivery of what Polystream describes as “the first truly pixel perfect, massively scalable, HD streaming solution for games and 3D applications”.

Grove commented:

“Having the backing and support of London Venture Partners and Initial Capital shows huge confidence in what we’re achieving, and we’re incredibly excited to be working with these great partners.

“We’ve already been out across Europe and the US demonstrating the potential of Polystream, and the response has been outstanding – this is the evolution of cloud gaming that everyone has been waiting for.”

David Lau-Kee, general partner at London Venture Partners, continued:”Polystream’s progress has been exceptional, and we’re more convinced than ever that they have the tech and team to deliver app cloud streaming that actually works, economically and in UltraHD quality.”
