Overall Satisfaction with Brightcove Video Cloud

I really enjoyed using Brightcove for our live and prerecorded streaming. The flexibility regard to video uploading from mobile devices meant reporters and staff were able to submit video from the field without having to consult a web producer. Prior to an event our web producers were able to set up multiplaylist players and basically walk away as the system managed uploads. Brightcove saved us a ton of time and allowed us to focus on more important tasks.
  • Live event streaming
  • Ability to customize players
  • Easy-to-use interface and app.
  • Customer support was always quick and helpful
  • Supported advertisements
  • Building your own player from scratch or modifying an existing players functionality through code is a pain - stick to prebuilt players, or pay for a custom one
  • Reporting is pretty limited
  • You have to pay for 24/7 support
  • Faster video turnaround time
  • Ability to stream live events
  • ROI with ad support
The decision to migrate from Kyte to Brightcove was made before I came on-board. However, I've worked with both systems and I am extremely happy we went with Brightcove. The user-friendly interface and mobile app. made it a great choice for event and sponsorship streaming.
If you are looking for a video solution that will allow your organization to simultaneously stream live events while maintaining a large catalog of on-demand videos Brightcove is perfect. Normal learning curve aside, any web producer with video experience should have no issues working with Brightcove.
