STV launches TV catch-up service in High Definition

STV has launched a recent three-part TV series showcasing Scotland’s scenery in High Definition format on its website-based TV catch-up facility.

‘Scotland Revealed’, filmed in High Defintion, showed off Scotland from the air, and was presented by Vanessa Collingridge. It is the first of its programmes to be available as a catch-up on HD and was achieved in collaboration with online video company, Brightcove.

It means viewers from around the world get to watch a high-quality version of the series.

Says Jeremy Allaire, Brightcove chair and chief executive officer: “STV was one of our first major customers in Europe, so it’s been particularly gratifying to witness the evolution and expansion of the organization’s online video initiatives.

“We’re proud that STV has chosen the Brightcove platform to support its groundbreaking Scotland Revealed series and look forward to contributing to the success of its future catch-up TV offerings.”
