By 2015, one million minutes of video will be watched online every second. And as online video becomes more prevalent, consumers have come to expect the online experience to meet the media grade - with highly discoverable content that’s broadcast-quality and supported by a rich user experience.
It’s a requirement mix that has driven the growth of more mature and media-focused online video platform (OVP) solutions. Such solutions also need to offer a blend of high quality and professional monetisation features, with cost effective and agile options for solution delivery.
