Live

The Live module can be used to help you broadcast a live event to both desktop and mobile devices. After entering your event information into the Live module, you will be provided with a set of encoder settings that you plug into your on-site encoder. All transcoding is done in the cloud so you don't need a hardware based transcoder.

Social

Brightcove Social allows you to easily publish videos in your Video Cloud account out to popular social medial platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Videos can be published manually or using Auto Sync. Auto Sync is used to automatically synchronize videos to social media channels based upon the tags that are associated with a video.

Audience

In addition, our Audience API enables partners and customers to retrieve the same MAP-related data for delivery to any data storage or processing platform of their choice. In both instances, Brightcove enables digital marketers to measure the impact of video to engage audiences on a personalized level and drive conversion.
