Ontela gets funding

Fierce Wireless today reported that Ontela received $4.5 million from Hunt Ventures, Oak Investment Partners and Voyager Capital.

Ontela, a Pioneer Square startup led by former RealNetworks veteran Dan Shapiro, is developing technology for sharing photos taken with camera phones.

Its “PicDeck” service can automatically transfer photos from phones to a PC or to online photo services. One of its big selling points is that it installs on a phone in less than a minute.

The funding “will support the company’s efforts as it moves from closed service trials to market deployment of its PicDeck mobile imaging platform in 2007,” the announcement said.
