BOSTON -- February 27, 2013

Brightcove (NASDAQ: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud content
services, today introduced new native player software development kits (SDKs)
for Apple iOS and Google Android devices, integrated with industry-leading
advertising, analytics, audience measurement and digital rights management
providers. Now premium video publishers can rapidly deliver apps that
integrate with the third-party services required for successful video
monetization and harness the performance and deep operating system integration
that only native technology can provide.

“The biggest challenge facing media companies today is delivering high-quality
video across mobile devices with the advertising, analytics and content
protection required to propel their business,” said Phil Costa, director of
product management, Brightcove. “We architected these new native player SDKs
in close collaboration with media industry leaders to provide maximum power
and flexibility to developers building video-rich apps for the leading
smartphones and tablets.”

The Brightcove player SDKs extend the native video player capabilities of iOS
and Android devices with a rich layer of additional functionality and
integrations that accelerate development of high-quality consumer experiences.
Built-in support for mixed video types and automatic buffering enable a
seamless viewing experience, while easily skinnable video controls and layouts
enable publishers to fully customize the player to their brand.

The SDKs and next generation player architecture are also designed to support
the needs of the Brightcove partner ecosystem, with a rich set of APIs for
customization by partners. Brightcove’s native player SDKs have been
integrated with Adobe SiteCatalyst, Adobe Pass, Akamai Media Analytics,
comScore Media Metrix, FreeWheel, Google DoubleClick for Publishers, Nielsen
VideoCensus and Google Widevine. The native player SDKs work with the
Brightcove Video Cloud Media API, as well as with other online video

Pricing and Availability

The native player SDKs for iOS and Android devices are available today free of
charge to Pro and Enterprise edition Brightcove Video Cloud customers. We plan
to make the native player SDKs available as stand-alone commercial products
for customers who manage their own online video platform or use other
third-party solutions.

App Cloud Discontinuation

In connection with the company’s decision to emphasize native SDKs, Brightcove
today also announced plans to discontinue App Cloud and accelerate investment
in its native player SDKs. Brightcove will continue to operate App Cloud for
existing customers through June 2014.

“The mobile app development marketplace is emerging and dynamic, and we have
learned a great deal from our customers and prospects as a direct result of
ramping our App Cloud efforts over the last eighteen months,” said David
Mendels, president, chief operating officer and chief executive
officer-designate of Brightcove. “By increasing investments in our native
player SDKs, we will be able to innovate more rapidly to solve the complex
challenges of multi-platform video app development and leverage our leadership
position in what we believe is a fast-growing, multi-billion dollar online
video platform market opportunity.”
