Hermann Hauser is one of the most influential technology investors in Europe.

"With this investment, we will ensure the global breakthrough of our flagship product eyeson. An additional financing round with US venture capital investors is already in preparation", states Andreas Kröpfl, VisoCon CEO and founder.

The software company VisoCon is a technology leader in smart video collaboration solutions. The core product is eyeson, a cloud-based software solution providing a video conferencing platform for optmizing collaboration. Technically it is based on a patented real-time communication server with Single-Stream-Technology, providing high video and audio quality regardless of the number of participants.

eyeson is already available for several online collaboration tools, such as Slack, Dropbox and Atlassian, more will follow. Developers can easily integrate eyeson's API in their own apps.

The patented Single-Stream-Technology is unique and provides extraordinary possibilities, such as including data streams into video conferences.
