Brightcove inks partnerships with Bebo, Meebo, RockYou, Slide, Veoh
Brightcove said that the partnerships were designed to give the media companies better opportunities to expand the reach of their respective online video content, while also maintaining control over their content and advertising inventories.
Media companies using the Brightcove Internet TV platform can program and syndicate ad-supported content into social networks, social media applications and an online video destination.
The distribution partnerships announced today will make an array of high-quality, premium video content available on Bebo channels, shared through viral widgets from RockYou and Slide on Facebook and MySpace, included in instant messaging activities on Meebo and viewed in full-screen at Veoh's Internet TV portal.
"Our distribution partners represent the fastest-growing segments of the social Web and hold enormous potential for our media customers to grow online audiences and scale their advertising inventory," said Jeremy Allaire, chairman and CEO of Brightcove.
