How National World Maximized Video Revenue and User Engagement

The Challenge: Reducing Costs and Enhancing Monetization in Video Distribution

National World, a prominent UK multimedia company operating over 150 newspapers and websites, faced significant challenges with their previous video solution provider, Brightcove. High costs and limited support hindered their ability to effectively monetize their extensive network of publications. They sought a video solution that could evolve with their digital strategy, minimize player costs, and maximize revenue generation across all properties.
