We are excited to announce the release of our iOS SDK integration with Brightcove Once UX! Matching the functionality of our Brightcove Player Android SDK integration, the iOS Once UX plugin offers support for all your server-side ad stitching needs.
With this, we released version 4.3 of the core iOS SDK, which contains required updates to work with the new Once UX integration.
Boasting enticing functionality such as preventing viewers from blocking ads and providing smooth streaming experiences across multiple device platforms, the Once UX integration with our iOS SDK allows the combination of two great Brightcove products.
The integration handles all of your advertising specifics covering pre-, mid- and post-rolls, as well as offering support for companion ads that are populated using the appropriate size matching algorithm. Following the latest in ad standards, Once UX implements a VMAP system that allows us to easily support skippable ads. And we wrapped all this up in a beautiful advertising UI that comes with the plugin!
