4/1/11

San Francisco-based Affine Systems, which uses computer vision technology to identify the content of online videos and help advertisers match ads with related content, said yesterday that it has raised $5 million in Series B funding. New investor Crosslink Capital led the round, which was joined by existing backer Highland Capital Partners. The company has raised $8 million all told. “We plan to use Crosslink Capital and Highland’s investment to scale our operations and bring advertisers the tools they need to be confident that their ads will be shown in connection with the most relevant and appropriate online videos,” Affine CEO Mike Sullivan said in a statement.
