Brightcove: Media companies need video partner who can thwart ad blockers

As part of the Local Media Association Boston Innovation Mission, attendees are sharing their top takeaways in a series of short stories. On Monday, the group visited with Brightcove.

Challenge: While video consumption is increasing, much of it is on the duopoly of Google and Facebook and monetizing it can be complicated.

Solution: During the Local Media Association’s Innovation Mission visit to Brightcove, the company shared that it’s important to ensure that your video distribution partner can thwart ad blockers using server-side ad insertion and have flexible options that allow for creating, editing and displaying video. An opportunity for media organizations to look into are video templates and modules for festivals that companies can use for their event coverage.
