Brightcove to Provide Live and On-demand Video Streaming for 2012 NAB Show
Video Cloud online video platform supporting onsite coverage from the world’s largest digital media and entertainment event
BOSTON, April 5, 2012 -- Brightcove Inc. (NASDAQ: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud content services, today announced that the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) will use the Brightcove Video Cloud online video platform for live and on-demand streaming of coverage from the 2012 NAB Show, April 14-19 in Las Vegas. Video Cloud will support “NAB Show Live!”, the video component of NABShow.com, which features live daily updates and on-demand highlights of keynote addresses, conference sessions, exhibits, and interviews from the show.
“NAB is working with Brightcove to make “NAB Show Live!” video content easily accessible on as many devices as possible,” said Chris Brown, executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations at NAB. “Our goal is to generate excitement for the NAB Show experience to audiences everywhere, whether they’re following from halfway around the world or attending in person and simply want to catch up on news they may have missed.”
With Video Cloud, NAB can deliver HTML5 and Flash-based video seamlessly across desktops and devices, making it easy for non-attendees and attendees alike to keep track of news and developments from the show. Video Cloud Smart Players will also recognize what device a viewer is using to watch content and automatically deliver a video stream optimized for that screen, be it a smartphone, tablet, PC, or connected TV.
“We are truly honored that NAB is using Video Cloud to bring the NAB Show to life for digital media innovators both in Las Vegas and around the world,” said Eric Elia, vice president of TV solutions at Brightcove. “Viewers can watch live updates from the show floor and the best interviews when and on what device they choose.”
Video Cloud provides a straightforward workflow for “NAB Show Live!”, which is critical given the fast-paced production environment and aggressive schedule. Numerous video packages are simultaneously created in multiple locations across the sprawling convention center, all of which can be uploaded into Video Cloud and published directly to the NAB Show Web site.
NAB Show will also produce a live wrap-up of the day’s events, which will be streamed in real-time through Video Cloud. Live encoding takes place through Digital Rapids encoders and the live stream is delivered in HD quality through the Akamai HD Network.
