Video content stands out as video experiences provide superior levels of engagement combining different sensory experiences with emotional and informational content.

Video Marketing on the Rise

According to a recent content marketing study 60% of marketers plan to increase their spend on content marketing and the use of video ranks as one of the top five tactics used. Use of video has increased 27% year-over-year since 2010.

With the increased reliance on video content ROI marketers are demanding more from their content management platforms and not always getting what they need. This is where vendors like Brightcove (the sponsor of this article) step in.

Unified Content via Strong Integrations

Brightcove has authored a new white paper entitled: Integrating Video with Your Customer Experience Management Platform. This document lays out the challenges marketers face when utilizing video content alongside other content forms.

The white paper also maps a plan for a "unified content environment" and explains how Brightcove has built strong integrations with Web CMS platforms like Adobe CQ5, Drupal, Ektron, Sitecore, WordPress and others.
