Online video platform Brightcove launches push in France

Brightcove continued its push into the European market, announcing today that it had officially launched operations there scoring several customer wins, opening offices in Paris and expanding its strategic partnership with French web-TV solutions provider Hub'Sales.

Brightcove said it had landed Société Générale, Audi France, and Roche as new customers, a trio of big names that quickly gives Brightcove panache in the country. In doing so, Brightcove extends its streak of big wins on the Continent and continues to expand its operations there.

In February, the online video platform announced it would be the player of choice for Turner Broadcasting in the U.K., Spain, France, Italy, Germany and other European countries; it also launched a localized platform in Spain as well as several high-profile customers.

The Cambridge, Mass.-based company also has scored a bevy of wins in the United Kingdom.

"In the past year, we have seen substantial growth and momentum in the French market as more brand marketers and media businesses leverage online video platforms to build their online audience, increase viewer engagement, and generate revenue," said Jeremy Allaire, Brightcove chairman and CEO. "This increased customer demand coupled with our ongoing strategic partnerships have helped to accelerate the adoption of our platform in France."
