Tencent-backed Kamcord has launched its capture and stream service in Japan and Korea today, as they continue their push into the East Asian markets.

Last year the company raised a $15 million USD B round to fuel their Asia expansion, opening offices in Tokyo and Seoul. Investors include Japanese game company Gungho and Wargaming along with Tencent. Kamcord has since worked on developing local partnerships to integrate their latest live streaming function.

Kamcord, which graduated from Y-combinator in 2012, began as software that could record gameplay using an integrated SDK. As of this year it has evolved into a live streaming service for gaming, entering the same territory as Twitch to cater to some of the biggest names in live gaming.
