With a global base of 5,500 customers the company offers powerful cloud-based solutions that deliver and monetize video “across every connected device”. Its products and services “reduce the complexity and increase the profitability of publishing, distributing, measuring and monetizing multi-screen video”. By utilizing Brightcove’s services LADbible will significantly enhance the flexibility of delivering its video content.
LADbible is an entertainment company based in Manchester in the northwest of the United Kingdom. The company specializes in content that appeals to millennials, of which it counts half of the UK’s as it audience. It recognized as being “one of the most watched online media properties in December 2017”. Brightcove will deliver a number of LADbible’s video brands, including SPORTbible and Pretty52.
