Brightcove, a provider of cloud services for video, has unveiled Brightcove Jump Start for Echo Show, a new service enabling publishers and brands to launch video skills quickly on the new Amazon Echo Show. Jump Start for Echo Show builds on Brightcove’s existing expertise of delivering and monetising a wide range of video experiences across multiple devices.
Brightcove Jump Start for Echo Show provides organisations a solution to quickly build and bring to market rich video experiences on the Amazon Echo Show. It does this by connecting the Brightcove Video Cloud platform with the Echo Show, allowing Brightcove customers to easily expand the reach of their content to Amazon’s ‘Alexa’ digital assistant.
“At Brightcove, we’ve long understood the way viewers consume content is changing, and it’s our responsibility to ensure our publishers’ content is ‘future proof’ for any new device or viewing experience. The introduction of the Echo Show provides our customers with another powerful opportunity to reach their audiences,” Chris Fuller, vice president, Global Solutions, Brightcove, said.” This new device has the potential to be a watershed event for the digital assistant industry and opens a significant opportunity for our customers to reach new audiences, monetise content, and extend their brands across one of the fastest growing device ecosystems in history.”
