In the company’s own words, what is it? Brightcove is an Internet TV service. We’re dedicated to harnessing the inherent power of the Internet to transform the distribution and consumption of media. Brightcove empowers content owners—from independent producers to major broadcast networks—to reach their audiences directly through the Internet. At the same time, we help web publishers enrich their sites with syndicated video programming, and we provide marketers
more ways to communicate and engage with their consumers. Most importantly, we give people the freedom to easily find, share, and watch a broad range of video content when and where they choose.
Outside quote about company: Kinley Levack from Streaming Media says, “The team behind Brightcove knows what they are doing. Eric Elia, VP of content and online services, came to Brightcove, from Comcast, where he led the development and user experience of Comcast.net. Bob Mason, Brightcove’s VP of technology, was formerly at Art Technology Group (ATG and was a founding member of ATG’s product development team. Tareef Kawaf, Brightcove’s VP of engineering, comes from Ruckus Network, Inc., and was also formerly with ATG. Brightcove’s VP of business development and strategy, Elisabeth Bentel Carpenter, hails from News Corporation’s British Sky Broadcasting subsidiary in London.
Then there’s Allaire himself, who has quite a pedigree. Allaire co-founded Allaire Corporation and was a major player in the development of Cold Fusion. Allaire Corp. was sold to Macromedia for $360 million, and Allaire proceeded to serve at Macromedia as CTO until moving to General Catalyst Partners, a venture capital group that is a major Brightcove backer.”
