A Brightspot Case Study

Powering Immersive Video Experiences for an Iconic Brand

NatGeo Video CMS Customer

Empowering editors and producers to organize, present, and deliver dynamic multimedia experiences faster and easier than ever before.

The Challenge: National Geographic’s legacy CMS made posting content a time-consuming and manual process for producers and editors. The site was overly complex on the back end and wasn’t providing visitors with the stunning visual experiences that the company was known for on the front end.

Video CMS Customer Example

It's a Ferrari of a system. Brightspot has an incredibly fast, sleek front end, and the back end is intuitive, simple and effective. Basically, it helps us publish faster.
