Brightcove's solution will solve the "knowledge gaps, technical limitations, and additional development costs" that organizations will face when trying to deliver video and other rich media to iPhone OS users. Their current platform features automatic device detection, native HTML5 player templates, and optimized H.264 transcoding.
