Blip.TV financial round, less viewers than Veoh

Blip.TV, NYC based private company focused on content delivery and revenue distribution with creators, just raised more cash for their operation.
The round was led by Ambient Sound Investments from Skype fame, which noted the narrow focus of Blip as a major differentiation form other video sharing sites – as blip are not approaching the viral market.
I’ve met Dina Kaplan,   Blip.tv COO and was impressed with her commitment to the creators. She also gave some good points re the direction the market is heading, with a mix of off site ads and sponsorships.
However, focus doesn’t come for free, as this graph, comparing Blip.TV visitors to Veoh, geared also toward viral videos, shows that Blip has significantly less unique visitors and grows slower than Veoh.

I hope that Blip will have deep enough pockets to continue with slower growth than the viral market, but more loyal viewers and creators.
