We're very pleased to announce today that Germany's most widely read newspaper has selected Brightcove to deliver a more engaging and user-friendly online video experience. ZEIT ONLINE, the Web property for Die Zeit, is now able to tightly integrate advertising-supported video with other online video content through the Brightcove platform. ZEIT ONLINE will also be able to extend its online audience by giving visitors the ability to share and embed videos on third party sites. Brightcove's ease of integration with leading ad networks and servers will also enable ZEIT to introduce new monetization opportunities for advertisers.
Commenting on the news, Christian Ropke, managing director of ZEIT ONLINE said: "As the clear leader in the industry, Brightcove provides everything we need to publish, distribute and monetize our online video content. Video performance and quality are key factors in the success of our online video initiatives, and Brightcove's track record in both areas is unmatched. Brightcove's open platform approach and developer resources also enable us to develop new, highly-customized experiences that integrate online video with other website features, which helps to keep visitors on the site longer."
