Beachfront Builder Adds Support for HTML5 Apps for Video Enables Comprehensive Video Experiences Across Mobile Web and Native Apps for Video Publishers
BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Beachfront Media, the creators of the popular video discovery engine MeFeedia, today announced that its video application development platform, Beachfront Builder, now supports HTML5 apps, adding Mobile Web support alongside already existing native app experiences for iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets. Using Beachfront Builder, video publishers and brands can quickly optimize their web video content to play on any mobile device with a web browser.
Tablets and mobile phones are quickly becoming the screen of choice for video content consumption with today's multi-device consumer. However, 70 percent of web sites are still not optimized for mobile. With HTML5 support, Beachfront Builder now makes it easy to quickly manage and deploy native and web-based video applications.
"The HTML5 versus Apps debate should not be an either/or decision - brands need both," said Frank Sinton, CEO and Founder of Beachfront Media. "By adding HTML5 App support, we are enabling brands to have both native apps for highly engaged users and Mobile Web for browser users, thus making their video content accessible from anywhere and putting an end to the debate."
In addition to HTML5 support, with the Beachfront Builder platform publishers can develop and publish native apps across platforms including the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore and the Windows 8 Store.
Beachfront Builder provides a next-generation video platform with a focus on the smartphone, tablet, and connected TV devices that power the future of TV and video content. With Builder, anyone with video can easily create, manage, deploy, and monetize high-quality, native apps for iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets, Windows 8 devices and now Connected TVs.
