The video portal FINANCE-TV has been developed to provide editors and production companies with an audiovisual platform. FINANCE-TV provides news directly from the heart of corporate finance, and covers every topic affecting the capital market and banking environment from a corporate and institutional investor perspective.

The core of FINANCE-TV is its integrated video hub which manages different video formats and operates like a press portal. Editors can revise and publish raw-data videos directly for FINANCE-TV, external portals or mobile devices. The raw-data videos are automatically converted into common formats for streaming, mobile devices or HTML5 and stored in the associated cloud for further delivery. Advertising formats such as pre- and post-roll commercials or overlay ads can also be integrated through a connected video ads server.

portrino GmbH was responsible for the creation of the video hub. Entirely based on open source software, it has been adapted for the specific needs of the Financial Gates Group. This particular platform was developed in order to easily deliver videos to clients in extremely constrained networks such as the banking sector.

“We achieved our goal of developing a fully automated video platform for our editors and production companies,” declares Hannes Karkowski, Director of the eMedia Department.
