HTML5 Development Gets a Boost from Brightcove

BOSTON, Jun 26, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- --Easy upgrade available to new App Cloud Pro Edition with real-time analytics, push notifications and native advertising, starting at $99 per month
Brightcove a leading global provider of cloud content services, today introduced App Cloud Core, a new free edition of the company's pioneering app platform that empowers Web developers to use HTML5 and JavaScript to develop and operate rich native apps for Apple iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets. App Cloud Core features an open source software development kit (SDK), powerful testing and debugging tools, unlimited cloud compilation, and real-time analytics for tracking app installations and usage.
With App Cloud Core, Brightcove provides an open source HTML5 mobile app development SDK and powerful cloud services for efficiently operating and managing apps. This combination makes App Cloud Core the end-to-end solution for building and managing apps.
"Organizations of all kinds are developing apps, but for many the way these apps are built is inefficient and unsustainable," said Ashley Streb, vice president of technology at Brightcove. "Hybrid apps, or apps built using HTML5 but deployed as a native app, continue to change the game for app development. But in order to be truly successful, organizations also need cloud-based services, like advanced analytics and push messaging, that ensure their apps remain successful long into the future. App Cloud Core not only empowers Web developers to create and publish unlimited apps for free, but it also provides a layer of intelligence and cloud-based services that is unmatched in the industry."
A Complete Solution for Mobile Apps
Built on Brightcove's intelligent cloud content platform, App Cloud Core empowers developers and business users to build and operate rich native apps. App Cloud Core provides:
-- Unlimited app publishing to iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
-- Cloud-based multi-platform compilation to generate distribution-ready, rich native apps for publishing across devices.
-- Open source JavaScript SDK and native containers to build apps that access native device APIs and avoid having to learn platform-specific languages, as well as providing a rich component library for touch-based user experiences supporting text, audio, video, images, and any kind of data.
-- The App Cloud Workshop testing tool that enables developers to painlessly preview and beta test apps directly on a device just as if they were testing a Web application in a browser.
-- On-device debugging to test application code while it is running on a device. By simply shaking their device, developers can connect the App Cloud Workshop test environment to the App Cloud remote debugging console to quickly diagnose problems and resolve bugs or performance problems.
-- Open access to Internet content sources, including content management systems, blogs, and REST-based Web services and limited use of App Cloud's Fast Feeds content optimization service for up to 5 of those sources.
-- Real-time analytics to measure installs, sessions, usage time and average session length across apps.
For access to more advanced features, there is an easy upgrade path available to App Cloud Pro, a new edition starting at just $99 per month. App Cloud Pro enables professional organizations of all sizes to take advantage of the full suite of capabilities within App Cloud, including powerful cloud content services and business-user features like real-time analytics, unlimited push messaging, image transcoding, content optimization and business user ability to update apps easily. App Cloud Pro enables organizations to affordably build and operate a broad range of apps.
Also announced today, the App Cloud Core open source SDK includes new APIs that enable media publishers to develop rich dual-screen app experiences for the Apple TV. The solution enables publishers to create apps for the iPhone and iPad that simultaneously control full-screen video streaming or interactive content on any HDTV while displaying rich synchronized content on the iPad or iPhone. The unique dual-screen solution leverages Apple's AirPlay technology, which allows users to wirelessly deliver video content and user interfaces from iOS devices to HDTV via Apple TV.

  2. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very
    different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
