It seems like only yesterday that we launched Beachfront Builder, a DIY platform for video publishers that has had some major successes. Today, we’re introducing yet another addition to the Beachfront platform—Beachfront Video SDKs for app developers.
With this new software developer kit, anyone with an existing iOS or Android app can easily add a great video experience to it in minutes without the need to build an entirely new app from scratch. It can even be curated video, owed video, and from a variety of sources that Beachfront Builder supports – MRSS, YouTube, DailyMotion, Vimeo, and more. We handle all of the complex infrastructure & the developer can focus on the user experience. With it, app developers can:
– Add & curate video from any source to existing iOS and Android apps
– Manage video content across multiple devices from one dashboard interface
– Analyze viewer usage and engagement with our Builder Analytics that is built-in
– Monetize with video advertising via the built-in Beachfront.iO video ad platform
If some of this sounds familiar, that’s because these are all elements of the overall Beachfront Builder platform. The Beachfront Builder platform is a full-scale, turnkey, DIY video app creation tool designed for content owners who need a solution to develop apps. Builder lets content companies create video apps once, which can be published across Mobile, Tablet, and Connected TV App Stores.
But not everyone needs that DIY level of service. The new SDK product allows customers with existing apps to simply add video content, along with video ads and video viewing analytics to those apps. By providing an SDK for app developers, we’re now offering developer-level control over the In-App video experience while still providing the robust management, analytics, and monetization that a customer receives in a full-fledged Beachfront Builder App.d across mobile, tablet, game console and Connected TV devices. It also has a built-in video ad platform, Beachfront.io, full analytics and reporting functionality, and various customization options.
These SDKs come on the heels of our earlier Beachfront.iO release, which simply offers video advertising and video ad mediation to anyone that already has video apps.
At Beachfront, our mission statement is “We’re Video. Everywhere.” That means providing video solutions for every need, every scenario, and every customer regardless of their situation. Whether you need turnkey video app development like Beachfront Builder, or just a video ad monetization tool like Beachfront iO, or the ability to add videos to existing apps like the SDK release, the Beachfront platform was made to be the most flexible set of tools available to anyone interested in video apps & monetizing those videos.
