Online video management specialist Brightcove has launched Video Cloud Live, an adaptive bitrate, live streaming module that’s designed to make it easier for its content partners to host and stream live events over the Internet.
The year of live video continues, this time with Brightcove, which is adding live event streaming to its Video Cloud platform. Customers will be able to mange live events from within their Brightcove dashboard, saving the files for later video-on-demand (VOD) playback.

Through its purchase of Zencoder, Brightcove recently announced general availability of the Zencoder Live Code Transcoding service, an open API for live video encoding in the cloud. This lets content creators to "produce adaptive bitrate streams without significant investments in on-premise hardware," Brightcove says.
