Video consumption on tablets and mobile phones is growing through the roof and media companies need a way to deliver optimized videos to these devices, while capitalizing on the opportunity for ad revenue and other forms of monetization. On the other hand, video also needs to fit in harmoniously with the other types of content that you are publishing and distributing.

Today we’re releasing an integration with Kaltura – a platform for video publishing, analytics and monetization. This means that Contentful customers can now use Kaltura to manage videos across any platform within the Contentful editing interface.

Users of both Kaltura and Contentful can now connect their accounts to search for, preview, select and embed Kaltura videos into their content pieces in Contentful. This simplifies publishing workflows for both Kaltura and Contentful customers.

Kaltura is being used by leading media companies like Warner Bros, Paramount Pictures and HBO, as well as leading universities and enterprises. It comes as a fully hosted, ready-to-use solution or as an on-premise version.

"Contentful is a key component to streamline our content production workflow and make sure our products meet the high expectations of our readers regardless of the device they're using. The integration of Kaltura within Contentful provides our editors with an efficient way to access the content from AZ Medien's TV Stations from within their CMS. Optimal content creation workflows are crucial to meet AZ Medien's business goals. Contentful and Kaltura are two platforms that greatly help us meet those goals.” - Javier Vázquez Rodríguez, Head of Product Management - News Sites, AZ Medien
