Brightcove Scores $60 MM Round

It’ll now have time to experiment with video formats and figure out whether it wants to be a pure syndication play, build a consumer-facing portal, or try more themed video collections of the sort it did for Sony BMG.

CEO Jeremy Allaire said the money would be used to expand internationally, build better tools and add more interactive features for consumers.
