Brightcove Introduces Smart TV SDKs for Roku, Samsung, and LG Devices, Empowering Media Companies to Reach New Audiences

The new SDKs streamline the development and management of native apps for premium OTT and DTC streaming video experiences

Brightcove (NASDAQ: BCOV), the world’s most trusted streaming technology company, today announced the launch of its new player platforms for Roku, Samsung and LG Smart TVs. The launch of the new Software Development Kits (SDKs) has unlocked advanced features within Brightcove’s industry-leading player framework, including content protection, monetization, and analytics reporting capabilities. Designed to reduce the cost and speed of high-quality app development, media companies can more effectively target the Smart TV platforms fueling media growth while delivering a consistent, engaging premium viewer experience.

“Brightcove is committed to helping media companies deliver engaging and world-class reliable streaming experiences while reducing the costs traditionally associated with launching and running an OTT service," said Scott Levine, Chief Product Officer at Brightcove. “Our comprehensive platform enables media companies to benefit from out-of-the-box functionality and deliver premium app experiences with features previously only available in bespoke custom app development - at a fraction of the cost. "

Brightcove developed the SDKs with advertising needs in mind, supporting client-side and server-side ad insertion (CSAI, SSAI) and integrating them with digital advertising partners. Brightcove’s Roku SDK also complies with the Roku Advertising Framework (RAF), facilitating the certification process for customers. Brightcove’s Smart TV SDKs improve media handling and offer sophisticated content security capabilities, including multi-format DRM support, playback rights restrictions, and HDCP Fallback, seamlessly enabling secure delivery of premium content across all platforms.
