BOSTON & TOKYO - Brightcove, the leading provider of cloud services for video, announced today that GQ Japan is using the Brightcove platform for inline, automatic and continuous playback on its website and for the mobile web. GQ JAPAN, which for more than 50 years has been the premier men's magazine, is the first Japanese publisher to offer this type of mobile playback and parent company, Condé Nast Japan, is now rolling out the technology for VOGUE JAPAN and VOGUE Girl.
