mixercastlogo.pngSan Mateo based embeddable widget provider MixerCast has taken $6 million Series B in a round led by Intel Capital that included ONSET Ventures and Velocity Interactive Group.

MixerCast allows users to mix together personal and licensed media into a slide show via one of their 18 customizable templates. Content for shows can be uploaded from a computer, recorded on a web cam, pulled in via url, or selected from an extensive library that includes content from Getty images, Nature & Wildlife, Muze Music, Muze Reels, and Pump Audio.

MixerCast’s next release, the MCast Suite, will offer content publishers and brand marketers “tools to combine and package practically any type of media and even third party widgets from the likes of Clearspring, RockYou and Slide into a single embeddable application.”

The company previously took $2.6 million in December 2005, taking total funding to $8.6 million. The new funding will be used to expanded capacity and to support customers and partners including Entertainment Tonight/Paramount and CBS.
