CAMBRIDGE, Mass., and LAS VEGAS -- Today at the 2009 NAB Show, Brightcove Inc., a leading online video platform, and Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq: ADBE - News) announced an expanded strategic alliance to deliver best-in-class online video solutions for Brightcove customers around the world. As part of the alliance, both companies will collaborate on technology and services that will enhance the quality of online video experiences, accelerate the development of content protection for rich media using Adobe Flash technology, and facilitate desktop tool integration to streamline online video workflows. Additionally, the companies intend to work together to offer interoperability between the Adobe open media player framework code-named "Strobe", announced today (see separate Adobe press release), and the Brightcove online video platform.

"Brightcove is the online video platform for hundreds of major media companies in 27 countries, each with unique market demands and increasingly complex requirements around quality and security," said Jeremy Allaire, CEO, Brightcove.

"Expanding our successful long-term collaboration with a market leader like Brightcove and its significant global reach will further accelerate the adoption of the Adobe Flash Platform, and pave the way for new initiatives like Adobe Strobe, our open and extensible media player framework."
