Ixonos partners with Brightcove for video-centric apps
Ixonos has announced a global services partnership with Brightcove, a leading provider of cloud services for video, that is designed to deliver innovative apps which leverage the power of online video to engage audiences and move businesses.
The newly-formed partnership will enable Ixonos to drive deeper customer value by providing more complete solutions to its customers that recognise video as a central component to their business. For Brightcove, incorporating Ixonos’ design and technical integration services will add an extra value-add component to its existing worldwide consulting services capabilities – strengthening Brightcove’s ability to deliver compelling, holistic solutions to its customers.
“For over 20 years, the biggest brands in the world have trusted Ixonos to dream, design and deliver innovative user experiences based on the very latest technology and Brightcove has proven to be the premier video solution for our customers,” said Joseph Oliver, vice-president and GM, Americas at Ixonos.
The formal partnership was conceived following the success of Ixonos and Brightcove’s collaboration on the AJ+ app for Al Jazeera, which won two Webbie awards (Best Film and Video, News and Information, and Best Mobile App), and was nominated for the prestigious World’s Best-Designed digital news product award from The Society for News Design (SND). Ixonos was responsible for the user experience and visual design while Brightcove was behind the video player and platform selected by Al Jazeera worldwide.
“Working with the Ixonos team on the AJ+ app delivered incredible success for Al Jazeera by combining our industry-leading video player and platform with Ixonos’ world-class design and UX expertise,” said Erik Bullen, Vice President Global Services at Brightcove. “Our partnership with Ixonos integrates our clients’ design and technology work for faster, more impactful solutions and we look forward to introducing Ixonos into our offering.”
