Press for Brightcove

Sitecore today announced it has partnered with Brightcove, a leading global provider of cloud content services, to launch new online video capabilities that help marketers increase website traffic and strengthen digital marketing campaigns. The new Brightcove Video Cloud Connect for Sitecore, developed in partnership with Agency Oasis, enables customers to sort, manage and publish video assets directly from Sitecore's Web Content Management System (CMS), using the Video Cloud online video platform.

Brightcove Inc. (Nasdaq: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for publishing and distributing professional digital media, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

FierceOnlineVideo editor Jim O'Neill caught up with Brightcove President and COO David Mendels recently to talk about the company's recent IPO, its App Cloud product, the challenges--and challengers--it faces in the online video platform space and the hurdles Mendels sees for online video moving forward. Brightcove (Nasdaq: BCOV) counts among its customers NBC Universal, Fox, Gannett, Showtime, Discovery, General Motors and Macy's, among many others. 
Mendels said the Cambridge, Mass.-based company is poised for big growth as more content owners recognize the potential of online video, and come to grips with the reality that the do-it-yourself platforms many have been using can't handle the device fragmentation in the space and are struggling with the demands the business is creating.

PaperThin Inc., a leading cloud-based Web content management solution provider, and Brightcove (NASDAQ: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud content services, today announced a partnership and integration between the Brightcove Video Cloud online video platform and the CommonSpot Web CMS that will enable seamless online video publishing and management for joint customers around the world.
“The integration between these two products, which we selected independently, is very exciting to us”
Through the partnership and integration, joint customers will be able to easily deliver and manage video experiences powered by Video Cloud through the CommonSpot CMS interface. Customers can easily drop a video from the Brightcove Video Cloud library on a Web page right from within the CommonSpot interface, which also allows for distributed control of video management to protect the integrity of your website and brand.
