[VIDEO] Digital Media 2013 Year-in-Review: What Did We Learn? | Brightcove Blog

“The end of each calendar year offers us a time to reflect on the previous 12 months and to hypothesize on what we can expect in the new year. This is always a fun exercise, even though, let’s face it, making assumptions about the future is 90 percent – informed but with a little whimsy added for good measure – conjecture. Given the rapid pace of transformation in the digital media industry, it’s a particularly exciting time to make predictions about this space.”

Using Zencoder on the Google Cloud Platform | Brightcove Blog

“With the recent addition of support for both Google Cloud Storage (GCS) and Google Compute Engine (GCE), Zencoder is breaking new ground in becoming ‘cloud-agnostic’ — enabling customers to have control over where and how their content is processed, at scale.


Google Cloud Storage joins Amazon S3 and Rackspace Cloud Files as a supported cloud storage provider in Zencoder. Like the s3:// or cf:// protocols, you can also construct input and output URLs with the gcs:// protocol to access content that is stored in Google Cloud Storage. With a bit of initial setup, you’ll be able to ingest content from your GCS buckets and push transcoded renditions (including adaptive HTTP Live Streaming) to GCS.


We’re also pleased to announce that Zencoder video on-demand (VOD) transcoding jobs can now be run on Google Compute Engine, which was recently made generally available.”

All I Want for Christmas is my Apple TV | Brightcove Blog

“Coming into 2012, with rumors and theories running wild, we all hoped for a new Apple TV in time for Christmas. While we did get spades of new tablets from Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Samsung and others, all Apple had for us was an upgraded iPhone and a handful of new iPad updates and sizes. The contents of our pockets may have changed, but Apple has left our living rooms largely untouched.”

Rapid Adoption of the Xbox Live Video App Platform | Brightcove Blog

“Beginning in 2012, however, connected TVs and gaming consoles have seen tremendous growth and consumer adoption. Unlike smart phones and tablets, these devices give consumers the best of both worlds: the vast set of options made available via IP-based video catalogs in addition to the traditional lean-back experience of watching video on the big screen. As a result, consumers are watching more and more video through these devices than ever before.”
