Monetizing online video content has been the “holy grail” for many firms. Today, we focus on one of the players, Brightcove. This firm provides cloud video services to a variety of clients. Recent results were generally showing a positive trend, even if the company still took a loss.

Subscription and support revenue was $37.4 million, compared to $36.5 million for the third quarter of 2017.

CEO Jeff Ray noted the following when discussing the Q3 2018 results last month:
Brightcove made continued progress in the third quarter on the strategic priorities that we believe will return the company to strong levels of consistent growth and profitability. In the near-term, the positive changes we are making to our product development, demand generation and go-to-market efforts caused some modest disruption to sales. We have completed a thorough review of our end markets and identified several sub-segments that are all exhibiting strong growth and an increased interest in deploying video to drive better business performance. We are now tightly aligning our product, demand generation and sales efforts in these areas. We are confident our strategy will deliver meaningfully improved financial results and generate significant value for shareholders.
Of course, you don’t always find the “holy grail,” but for businesses and a variety of clients, cloud video is definitely here to stay. Our models currently find that Brightcove is on the right track.
