Brightcove, the broadband video platform operator, has announced a new service that claims to provide content owners the ability to deliver broadcast-quality streaming video to web viewers. The new service, Brightcove Show, takes advantage of new advances in Adobe's Flash Player technology, as well as improved distribution technology provided by BitTorrent.
"In the last two years, internet TV has transformed the web by bringing the storytelling power of video directly into sites, but contextual and viral video clips are only the beginning," said Jeremy Allaire, chairman and chief executive officer of Brightcove.
"Now the industry is ready for the next major leap in the evolution of internet TV, and that's gracefully extending from short video clips on sites into full-length programmes and movies delivered via the Internet to PCs."
Brightcove Show leverages the new BitTorrent Delivery Network Accelerator (DNA) content delivery service from BitTorrent.
