We're thrilled to announce that Brightcove's Digital + Consulting Services team and our partner Lightmaker have been honored by the Web Marketing Association with a MobileWebAward for our work on the Daystar Television Network mobile app. The app won the award for Best Broadcasting Mobile Application.

Daystar, one of the fastest-growing, faith-based entertainment companies in the world, and its leadership "seek out every available means of distribution to a world in need of hope...Daystar is committed to producing and providing quality television that will reach our viewers, refresh their lives and renew their hearts."

Brightcove and Lightmaker partnered to deliver an incredible app that provides an exciting viewing experience for the Daystar audience. 

The app's design is fresh and simple, yet creates an engaging experience and is a new way for viewers to interact with the Daystar Television Network. Relying upon Brightcove Video Cloud for the app's video components, Daystar now enables its viewers to:
