iPlayerHD Announces Brightcove® Customer Conversion Program

Profitable video hosting company provides discounted fees for new clients transitioning from the discontinued free Brightcove® video hosting service.

Online PR News – 26-February-2009 – – Small and medium businesses increasingly rely on video to help deliver their brand and marketing messages effectively to consumers. Finding reliable, quality hosting has always been a challenge for these businesses, as most existing low-cost or free services restrict commercial use, or mix advertisements with video, diluting the brand message. With Brightcove® discontinuing their popular free video hosting service, many clients are left stuck with paying thousands per year or finding a suitable alternative.

iPlayerHD (http://www.iplayerhd.com), a leader in delivering cost-effective quality video streaming to professionals and small businesses, is offering special pricing for converting Brightcove® customers – 3 free months of hosting. With customizable skins, a brand free player, smart streaming, and an easy to use web site, iPlayerHD represents an excellent choice as a replacement for Brightcove®. After the free 3 months of service, customers will need to pay the standard $30 per month hosting fee, significantly below the industry average.

"Faced with a new $6,000 per year fee to host my existing videos, I knew I had to find another solution, and fast" says Scott Prentice, CEO of online publisher Black Hills Today. "Thankfully, I found iPlayerHD. I was up and running in less than an hour, with a level of service far beyond my previous provider. I now have excellent delivery quality, a customizable player, and at just $30 per month, a price nobody can match."

iPlayerHD, founded in early 2008, delivers quality video streaming to professionals and small businesses who rely on video as key component of their brand image. The service has been especially popular among videographers and other video professionals. "As a veteran of several video companies, I know how important the quality of the video experience is to consumers," says iPlayerHD founder Wes Moore. "That is why I built iPlayerHD with a focus on ease of use, quality of delivery, and providing this critical service at a reasonable cost."

Utilizing smart video streaming technology, iPlayerHD will adapt its video delivery dynamically for each customer. This ensures they see the highest quality video their machine and connection can handle, in most cases without any discernable pause or jitter. iPlayerHD provides an easy to use management console which allows their users to upload videos, select skins, players, and define channels for their users. The technology is current deployed in production on hundreds of web sites across a variety of industries.
