Live video and audio SDKs platform Dyte has raised $11.6 million in seed funding round from Unbound, Sequoia Capital India’s Surge, and Nexus Venture Partners.
The startup plans to use the funds to expand its product and engineering team and focus on international hires while building a global market.
New Delhi-based Dyte was founded in 2020 by Abhishek Kankani, Kushagra Vaish, and Palash Golecha, It is a developer-friendly, real-time audio and video communication software development kit (SDK).
It allows product and engineering teams to integrate live video into their apps to support innovative and interesting business use-cases. The SDK is simple to use and provides integration within a few hours and has a large number of plug-ins and configurations.
The configuration gives developers a quick and efficient way to embed audio and video calling, AI video enhancements and collaboration features with just a few clicks, instead of requiring complex code.
“We’ve only just scratched the surface of possibilities when it comes to live video. It’s our mission to provide app developers with an easy-to-use interface, so that they can focus on the customer user experience, and not worry about the technology or infrastructure challenges of building and supporting live audio and video. Using live video and audio for work is not only the new normal, but it’s imperative that the future of work is built out and thought out carefully. People need to be able to multitask, share and integrate their business needs while being able to talk with colleagues and clients.” Said, Abhishek Kankani, Co-founder and CEO of Dyte.
