Announcing the Finalists for the 3rd Annual Brightcove Innovation Awards

We are a few short weeks away from kicking off our third annual global customer conference, Brightcove PLAY 2013, on May 13th in Boston. As always, PLAY has attracted a fantastic group of more than 500 Brightcove customers, partners and industry thought leaders for three action-packed days of networking, product demos, best practice sharing and exciting keynote presentations.

Each year at PLAY, we recognize a small group of some of the most innovative, cutting edge digital media initiatives and campaigns across a number of industries and use cases through the Brightcove Innovation Awards.

This is always one of our most popular sessions at PLAY, as it gives us a chance to shine a light on our customers and partners, and it gives attendees a chance to learn from other organizations and see firsthand how they are achieving success.

Winners will be announced during the keynote on May 15th beginning at 11:30 am ET. The awards ceremony will also be streamed live at And, if you have not yet registered to attend, you can still do so at
