This week at the NAB show in Las Vegas Brightcove, a leading global provider of cloud content services, today unveiled its Video Paywall Solution Framework. The solution framework accelerates the introduction of paid video content services for media publishers by combining the scale, reliability and multi-screen reach of the Brightcove Video Cloud online video platform with best-in-class subscription management, payment processing, digital rights management (DRM) and content protection technologies, including Adobe Flash Access, Google Widevine, PayWizard, and TinyPass.
“Media publishers are under pressure to offer paid access to their premium video content, but many are struggling to identify and knit together all the technologies that are required to deliver a great multi-screen consumer experience,” said Eric Elia, vice president of TV solutions at Brightcove. “Our new solution framework pulls together all the building blocks from multiple vendors into a state-of-the-art system that sells, delivers and protects content across PCs, smart phones, tablets, and connected TVs.”
The Brightcove Video Paywall Solution Framework empowers customers to deliver a fully-branded consumer experience for delivering subscription or pay-per-view access to paid video content and viewing the purchased content across PCs, smart phones, tablets, smart TVs, and over-the-top (OTT) devices.
The Video Paywall Solution Framework combines the Brightcove Video Cloud online video platform with essential enabling technologies from several Brightcove Alliance Partners for content protection, access control, and payments. PayWizard as a pre-integrated Alliance Techonolgy Partner provides secure subscription, transaction and account services.
“PayWizard is thrilled to partner with Brightcove to enable flexible online payment solutions that work across multiple devices,” said Stephen Petheram, Marketing Director at PayWizard. “As part of Brightcove’s Video Paywall Solution Framework, PayWizard can help publishers drive revenue as well as offer a wider range of innovative payment options to consumers.”
PayWizard and Brightcove look forward to announcing new clients soon.
