Brightcove Launches Native Player Solution for Premium Video Apps on Apple iOS & Google Android Devices

Brightcove (NASDAQ: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud content services, today introduced new native player software development kits (SDKs) for Apple iOS and Google Android devices, integrated with industry-leading advertising, analytics, audience measurement and digital rights management providers. Now premium video publishers can rapidly deliver apps that integrate with the third-party services required for successful video monetization and harness the performance and deep operating system integration that only native technology can provide.

“The biggest challenge facing media companies today is delivering high-quality video across mobile devices with the advertising, analytics and content protection required to propel their business,” said Phil Costa, director of product management, Brightcove. “We architected these new native player SDKs in close collaboration with media industry leaders to provide maximum power and flexibility to developers building video-rich apps for the leading smartphones and tablets.”

The Brightcove player SDKs extend the native video player capabilities of iOS and Android devices with a rich layer of additional functionality and integrations that accelerate development of high-quality consumer experiences. Built-in support for mixed video types and automatic buffering enable a seamless viewing experience, while easily skinnable video controls and layouts enable publishers to fully customize the player to their brand.

The SDKs and next generation player architecture are also designed to support the needs of the Brightcove partner ecosystem, with a rich set of APIs for customization by partners. Brightcove’s native player SDKs have been integrated with Adobe SiteCatalyst, Adobe Pass, Akamai Media Analytics, comScore Media Metrix, FreeWheel, Google DoubleClick for Publishers, Nielsen VideoCensus and Google Widevine. The native player SDKs work with the Brightcove Video Cloud Media API, as well as with other online video platforms.

Pricing and Availability

The native player SDKs for iOS and Android devices are available today free of charge to Pro and Enterprise edition Brightcove Video Cloud customers. We plan to make the native player SDKs available as stand-alone commercial products for customers who manage their own online video platform or use other third-party solutions.

App Cloud Discontinuation

In connection with the company’s decision to emphasize native SDKs, Brightcove today also announced plans to discontinue App Cloud and accelerate investment in its native player SDKs. Brightcove will continue to operate App Cloud for existing customers through June 2014.

“The mobile app development marketplace is emerging and dynamic, and we have learned a great deal from our customers and prospects as a direct result of ramping our App Cloud efforts over the last eighteen months,” said David Mendels, president, chief operating officer and chief executive officer-designate of Brightcove. “By increasing investments in our native player SDKs, we will be able to innovate more rapidly to solve the complex challenges of multi-platform video app development and leverage our leadership position in what we believe is a fast-growing, multi-billion dollar online video platform market opportunity.”

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
