Newsweek launches new site with Brightcove tools
On Monday, Newsweek rolled out a brand new site. For years Newsweek had been a part of the MSNBC site but now has its own spot on the web with a very rich media centric site. The new site was built almost entirely using new tools from Brightcove. Brightcove has gained a lot of traction as a tool for companies and individuals to publish (and distribute) video content but as part of the new platform they have moved into more feature-filled creation tools as well. Newsweek is a prime example of that.

The Newsweek site leveraged Brigthcoves's StoryMaker and Console tools which allow you to build out your channels, add functionality and then set up programming lineups and campaigns. Based on the site it has gotten quite a bit of traction but I think the Newsweek site is the biggest so far and makes the most use of all the features.

Keep an eye on Brigthcove. They've been branching out into the content business in a big way and have both talent and assets to keep the momentum going.
