Stubbs Alderton & Markiles, LLP announced that it represented client IRIS.TV in its $18M Series B Funding round. IRIS.TV ingests millions of videos every day from the world’s largest broadcasters, publishers, and content creators around the world. Each video is then analyzed and assigned hundreds of additional data segments to build a more comprehensive understanding of each individual video. These new data segments can be utilized for many solutions including video recommendations, analytics, insights, contextual video ad targeting, and the creation of additional first-party data. We believe the world’s premium video content and journalism should be easier for users to discover and for marketers to target and align their messaging.
