video content solution

When you’re looking to expand your business, it’s usually tough to discern what the right move is. Lately, publishers are concerned about keeping up with the demands of the industry; heavy competition from other technologies, struggling to retain audiences etc. We recognize the importance of these factors and it’s crucial not to lose sight of them. The digital market is indeed evolving at a frantic pace. Now, things will likely get even more challenging for publishers in the coming years. The technology we’ve created is capable of handling these changes. Think of this latest addition to Brid.TV as the perfect video solution or content management solution.  

Going Beyond Content Management Solutions 

Sure, at this point you’re probably wondering how you’re going to handle the year ahead. The answer to that poser is simple: step-by-step. One of the essential solutions we’ve developed in the year 2020 is already proving to be an extremely valuable tool for small businesses and enterprises alike. 

The Brid.TV Carousel works to ensure developers and site owners one simple thing: having a content solution without actual video content on your web site. How is this possible? Well, let’s find out. 

How Does the Brid.TV Carousel Work?

If you’re using an HTML5 video player to monetize your videos, then you’re pretty much well acquainted with our video management system. Publishers who have video content can monetize with ease. In contrast, if you are lacking any video content, but still wish to monetize your website because it has a decent amount of traffic, then it’s a potential problem. To put it another way, you can think of the Brid.TV Carousel as a content management solution alternative. This problem can easily be circumvented with the Brid.TV Carousel. Utilizing our system to monetize content can be done even if you do not have any videos on your web site.

Main Features of the Carousel Unit

  1. Easily use Brid.TV Carousel to add multiple URLs, and the Brid.TV finds the right featured image for one particular URL. 
  2. Five images in total can be added to the unit.
  3. It’s up to the publisher to set the exact time of the transition between the slides.  

Optional, But Awesome Benefits 

There is a range of benefits with this particular tech, and it’s up to you to find the combo that’s ideal for your business. Check it out: 

  1. Activate Video Player Controls
    As a video content solution, one of the cool benefits of the Carousel is being able to make additional tweaks and optimizations. For instance, the Carousel can include the video controls of the Brid.TV Video Player, if needed. 
  2. Tracking Parameters
    Anything you do with the Brid.TV Carousel can be analyzed. Remember, each image is clickable, so once you’ve incorporated the Carousel unit, additional parameters can be added to keep track of any interactivity that occurs within the unit. This is a terrific addition that will no doubt help you determine if your content is getting any traction. 
  3. Fetch Images From RSS Feed
    Another option is to connect the Carousel unit with your website’s RSS feed (the unit pings every 2-3 hours and is refreshed with new articles, and images are then imported).
