Brightcove Adds HTML5 VPAID 2.0 Support to the Brightcove Player

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Brightcove
Inc.
(NASDAQ: BCOV), the leading provider of cloud services for
video, today announced that it has released support for HTML5 VPAID 2.0,
enabling customers to deliver JavaScript-based interactive ads through
the Brightcove Player. The release empowers customers to deliver a pure
HTML5 video experience to viewers without the need for Flash.

Earlier in the year, Brightcove released the Brightcove
Player version 5
, which can deliver adaptive bitrate HLS video to
all modern browsers and eliminate dependence on Flash for video
playback. While a pure HTML5 video approach offers viewers great
cross-platform experiences, faster time-to-first frame, and lower CPU
usage on their devices, publishers have relied on Flash to run
advertisers’ interactive video ad campaigns. With Brightcove’s release
of HTML5 VPAID 2.0 support publishers are now able to run
JavaScript-based interactive video ads. Publishers worldwide have cited
the lack of broad ecosystem support for true HTML5 VPAID as the last
major challenge holding back the development of faster, lighter, more
secure video experiences that do not require Flash technology.
Publishers will now be able to maximize their revenue while providing a
much better experience for their viewers.

Leading interactive ad providers Brainient,
Innovid
and Sizmek
view Brightcove’s new HTML5 VPAID 2.0 support as creating new
opportunity for publishers.

“We’re excited about Brightcove’s move to support HTML5 VPAID ads
through their player. We’ve seen substantial traction in adopting HTML5
VPAID by our customers this year. Brainient’s interactive ads help our
sell-side customers increase their CPMs by an average of 30%, so
Brightcove’s HTML5 VPAID support will enable publishers to run
interactive video ads on their mobile inventory, which will help them
charge higher CPMs and increase revenue. It’s a real win all-round and
I’m looking forward to seeing a majority of the ecosystem adopting HTML5
VPAID this year.” — Emi Gal, CEO at Brainient

“Our video
benchmarks
show that interactivity and touchscreens naturally drive
very high levels of engagement, so it’s key that marketers get their
interactive ads in front of mobile viewers, which makes publishers’
mobile inventory even more valuable. Brightcove’s new support for HTML5
VPAID 2.0 unlocks tremendous opportunity for both sides of the house.” —
Zvika Netter, Co-Founder and CEO at Innovid

“The HTML5 VPAID format is not new to the industry as a technology or
standard, but it is still in its infancy in terms of ad execution and
deployment. With Brightcove enabling the use of HTML5 VPAID and
providing access to Sizmek’s video ad technology, their clients can now
ensure delivery of engaging interactive mobile video experiences.
Leveraging HTML5 VPAID can lift engagement either via click-through or
interaction, by more than 389% over mobile VAST ads, which means this
addition could have a remarkable return on spend for advertisers.” —
Jaime Singson, Director of Product Marketing at Sizmek

Availability
Customers using the Brightcove Player version 5
and the Google IMA integration with HTML5 preferred or HTML5 only as
their ad content type will automatically be able to run HTML5 VPAID 2.0
ads.
