Ooyala the latest to announce iPad support; company provides publishers with video platform services

Ooyala, a provider of video platform applications and services for publishers, has announced that it will be providing support for the iPad platform.

Publishers who are already streaming video to iPhone will be able to deliver video immediately to iPad, the company said.

"The iPad is more than just another connected device," says Bismarck Lepe, Ooyala's President of Product. "It's an innovation that will drive new ideas in portability and personalized media. We've supported native delivery of video to the iPhone for over a year now, and in that year we've seen huge growth in the amount of video consumed on the device. We expect that starting April 3rd, iPad will build on the success of iPhone and be another important online video device."

Current Ooyala's customers include Telegraph Media Group, Vice magazine, Johnson & Johnson, General Mills, The Glam Network and Electronic Arts.
