Brightcove expands in Spain with fully-localized video platform, new customers and new partners

Online video platform Brightcove is making a big push into Spain, launching a new Spanish-language platform, establishing several new strategic and technology partnerships and announcing a gaggle of recently landed customers as part of its expansion.

Brightcove said its new Spanish-language platform will include a full range of back-end services for video content management, automatic ingestion and multi-format transcoding, advanced monetization, customized players and publishing, multi-platform delivery, product documentation, customer support and a flexible framework for the development of online video applications and solutions.

The platform will be home to a group of big-name customers--adding onto a growing roster of firms already in the Brightcove stable. The new names include Tuenti, Grupo Vocento, Sony Music Spain, Condé Nast Digital Spain, Grupo V, GEC, GX Magazine and TQMadrid. Brightcove says its established several strategic partnerships and technology collaborations as well with 24/7 Real Media, Adobe, Atos Origin, Eyeblaster, Preview Networks Spain and Smartclip.

"Spain is a sophisticated and fast-growing market for online video, which now spans nearly every sector of industry and society," said Jeremy Allaire, Brightcove chairman and chief executive officer. "The localization of the Brightcove online video platform will accelerate the adoption of our platform by media companies, marketers and organizations of all types across the country."

Brightcove scored a major customer earlier this month when it landed Turner Broadcasting's business for Europe. Turner names Brightcove its player of choice in the U.K., Spain, France, and Italy, among other countries.

Brightcove counts more than 200 technology, distribution and solution partners around the world as part of the Brightcove Alliance, the company's global partner ecosystem.
