It’s no longer a choice for media and entertainment companies to make their content available over the top. Now, it’s an expectation. Viewers around the world want to access and enjoy content on their chosen device and platform wherever they may be.
At Brightcove, our goal is to help content owners of all sizes capitalize on the exploding OTT market, whatever their needs may be. From companies just starting their search for a turnkey experience to sophisticated broadcasters seeking a more customized offering, Brightcove now offers a complete suite of solutions to meet the needs of everyone, at all ends of the OTT continuum.
Today’s content owners are challenged with the need to attract and support viewers across a wide variety of platforms and delivery methods. This requires specific skill sets and a capital investment to address the different platforms, operating systems, stream formats, advertising framework, billing ecosystems, and user experiences.
We recognize these challenges can impede on an organization’s ability to capitalize on the market opportunity, and more importantly, get their content in front of audiences when and where they want it. To address this, we’ve created solutions that allow our customers to address their viewers and adopt a multi-platform strategy depending on where they are on their OTT journey. For customers starting out or needing to optimize time to market, OTT Flow is an award winning turnkey solution that does not require any technical resources or up-front costs. At the opposite end of the continuum Brightcove Global Services can design beautiful, bespoke solutions that address all of your market requirements, and it’s a great solution when time to market is not critical.
By working with customers of all sizes and industries looking to go the OTT route, Brightcove has identified an audience with more complex requirements and customization needs than a pure turnkey service. Not only that, but customers need these capabilities while balancing time to market with budget and/or availability of technical resources.
