Heading into NAB we’re excited to release Once VOD 2.0 (OV2), the next generation of our cloud-based, server-side ad and stream stitching solution. Once VOD enables media companies to deliver a seamless and consistent ad-supported video experience across devices, thereby expanding audience reach, creating more ad inventory and ultimately driving more revenue.
When combined with the server-side ad delivery of Once, Brightcove’s video players make possible rich user experiences and interactivity via actionable overlays, enable synchronizable companion ads (and content), and give content providers control over the in-player ad experience. The powerful combination of Brightcove products abstracts the ad insertion technology to the server, while enabling control of the player experience, client-side reporting and measurement.
This enhanced version of Once provides:
- Incredibly fast publishing to take advantage of timely content. OV2 leverages cloud-based workflows and the industry-leading encoding performance of Brightcove Zencoder to quickly process and publish video.
- Easy integration with publishing APIs and granular job status alerts Customers can use powerful APIs to integrate OV2 with existing content workflows and maintain process visibility and automate workflows with push notifications.
- Content security with AES-128 and Sample AES encryption. Content providers can protect their valuable assets with both AES-128 and Sample-AES encryption along with flexible token authentication across CDN service providers.
- Subtitle and caption support for global readiness. OV2 provides comprehensive support for multi-language subtitles and closed captions across virtually any device.
