MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the online video platforms (OVPs) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Brightcove with the 2012 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Market Share Leadership. This is the second time in two years that Brightcove has received this recognition. As the first and largest of more than 80 global OVP vendors, Brightcove remains dominant and clearly at the head of the pack with its Video Cloud OVP. The company holds the largest global market share in terms of revenues as a result of its best-in-class solutions and focus on continuous innovation. "The primary OVP market founder, Brightcove has been ambitious in expanding the definition and scope of the OVP market and its own capabilities as well," noted Frost & Sullivan Senior Analyst Loren Johnson. "It can not only provide a client with a full range of solutions, from very basic transcoding into a few key formats, to providing fully featured video players, interactive content elements, global syndication, visitor and behavior analytics, advertising and monetization management, and transcoding into literally hundreds of different renditions of the same source video file, but it can offer a host of value-added, natively developed advanced solutions as well." In fact, Brightcove's combination of "a la carte" solutions, discrete product packages, and multiple additional products fill gaps in the video ecosystem management environment. With a vast selection of tools, products, and packaged solutions, all other OVP vendors seek inspiration from Brightcove's leadership and innovation. For the publisher, Brightcove Video Cloud offers exceptionally modular architecture, ease of deployment, and intuitive features that are accessible to technical and non-technical users alike. It allows for massive customization and assists customers in optimizing the video ecosystem for maximized impact, influence and profitability. For the consumer, the Video Cloud player is familiar, convenient, and functional. The measures it takes to offer dependable, optimized-for-any-device, network, and screen video delivery, including secure partnerships with global content delivery networks (CDNs), advanced analytics companies, and ad networks and servers, guarantee an exceptional viewing experience.
