Bangalore: Keisense, a provider of solutions and applications for mobile devices, Internet-connected TVs and gaming, has secured bridge financing of $250,000 from Connecticut Innovations (CI), a technology investment arm.

"We continue to see strong interest in our technology in multiple markets. We have now extended PriText to support not just touch screens and physical keyboards but a variety of input interfaces including scroll wheels, knobs, joysticks and directional keys, covering a wide range of smartphones, consumer electronics devices, gaming controllers and remote controls," said Santosh Sharan, President and CEO of Keisense.

Hartford-based Keisense uses its patent PriText to enable rapid and error tolerant text input in multiple languages on mobile devices and facilitates social networking applications on TV and set-top boxes. According to the company, with the convergence of mobile devices, TV and the Internet, users have access to endless content, programs and interactive applications. Keisense indexes and manages this content, providing a more intuitive way to search for content and enter text. Currently, there are about 250 employees in the company.

Peter Longo, President and Executive Director of CI said, "We are excited by the inroads that Keisense is making in the marketplace. This summer the company secured its first major customer, an international digital entertainment products company. Additionally, Keisense's technology is being tested by several major communications, electronics and entertainment products companies."
