Mobile gameplay recording and sharing solution developer Kamcord announces USD7.1 million funding in Series A, led by TransLink Capital. Existing investors Innovation Works, XG Ventures, and Mark Williamson also joined this round. Apart from SV Angel, most new investors introduced this round are from Japan, DeNA (social game company), KLab (online gaming company), and M&Y Growth Partners.

Prior to this round the company had raised USD2.5 million from investors that also include Asian ones such as Tencent and Innovation Works.

It’s no surprise that a mobile gameplay video sharing service like Kamcord is attractive to Asian investors, for online gaming, more recently mobile gaming, has been one of the most popular and profitable Internet services across Asia. That’s also why Kamcord, based in the US, would expand to Asian markets. The company found huge demand for game recording and shareing in China after a visit earlier this year and has launched a Chinese version.
