We’re excited to announce that a new Brightcove-specific Amazon Fire TV web app kit is now available for Brightcove Video Cloud customers! The new HTML5 template will enable content owners to leverage their existing Brightcove-based workflows for Amazon Fire TV and easily expand their audience reach and revenue opportunity. The new template is available on Amazon’s Developer Website.
For Brightcove publishers, the template provides a way to seamlessly pull in content that’s hosted and organized in Video Cloud and use the ultra-fast Brightcove Player. Because of the robust integration with the Brightcove Player, publishers can run ads against their content on Amazon Fire TV using the Google IMA3 advertising plugin, and also capture analytics about video consumption on Amazon Fire TV in Video Cloud.
We’re thrilled to partner with Amazon Fire TV to provide a solution to our customers that will optimize the delivery of their content directly to Amazon Fire TV! For more information, please read the full press release here, and grab a copy of our datasheet here.
