PBS selects thePlatform
May 15, 2008
The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in the US has chosen thePlatform to power its new online video initiative that will significantly increase the amount of PBS video available on both pbs.org and local PBS station Web sites.
PBS will use thePlatform, the broadband video management and publishing company, to publish and manage its national broadband video programming on its websites. The agreement also allows PBS to enable online video distribution of national programming to PBS member stations and their respective websites. In addition, local PBS stations will have access to thePlatform’s publishing system and video player technology to publish locally produced content to their individual websites and to make it available to other local PBS stations.
