LONDON & NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2021: Glisser, the award-winning virtual and hybrid meetings platform, today announces its partnership with Brightcove (NASDAQ: BCOV), the global leader in video for business. This partnership provides event professionals with a suite of options to combine these two enterprise-grade solutions into a powerful business tool for internal and external meetings.

Glisser customers can now integrate Brightcove's broadcast-grade streaming technology into their virtual or hybrid events. Brightcove joins a roster of twelve other third-party video options in the Glisser platform, delivering both broadcast and web conferencing options, as well as Glisser’s own solution, Glisser Stream.

Meanwhile, Glisser’s secure and highly scalable virtual and hybrid events platform will now be available to Brightcove customers in two formats. They will be able to select Glisser ‘off-the-shelf’ and gain instant access to Glisser’s award winning audience engagement, data gathering, and attendee connection features, as well as presenter green rooms, CPE certification options, and extensive analytics.

In addition, Brightcove customers will be the first to benefit from “Glisser Elements,” Glisser’s newly released virtual events SDK that allows enterprises and their agencies to create bespoke virtual events experiences from Glisser’s powerful components right inside their websites.

Using Glisser Elements, clients can customize the audience experience with complete control over each visual component, screen layout, and navigation. Glisser provides secure and scalable plug-and-play components based upon enterprise-grade technologies built to cope with high user volumes and activity surges that could crash other platforms. 

Glisser’s CEO and Founder Mike Piddock said, “We’re super excited to partner with such a high-quality video solutions provider as we launch Glisser Elements. Brightcove customers demand a premium and flawless experience and have the forward-looking vision to understand how online meetings and events are now a core communications channel for their businesses. That means they need a solution that evolves alongside their needs and is embedded in the technology they already use in their companies.”

"We are excited to partner with Glisser to ensure our customers have a secure, scalable, and feature-rich platform for their virtual and hybrid events," said Brian Froehling, EVP, Head of Global Sales at Brightcove. "The addition of Glisser Elements as an option to our clients is an innovative and forward-thinking step towards the integrated role of video and events software post-pandemic, and Brightcove is proud to be at the forefront of that."
