Fincons and Bitmovin prepare to take the broadcast market by storm with cutting-edge products and tailored solution delivery

NEW YORK — Fincons Group, a leading IT business consultancy, system integrator and technology solutions developer, announces its partnership with Bitmovin, a world leader in online video technology. The objective of the two businesses is to leverage their combined strengths to deliver innovative and future-proofed products, tailored solutions and services to the market. Fincons Group and Bitmovin have already started to successfully cooperate in international projects and business initiatives.

Fincons Group is particularly well-placed to deliver innovation to the international Media and Broadcast market thanks to its pioneering role in developing OTT and Hybrid TV solutions for Tier 1 players globally. With this partnership Fincons continues to expand its partner network to provide clients with the best solutions to fit their needs.

Bitmovin provides video infrastructure for online media companies, enabling its customers to deliver several billion videos to consumers every day. The company has been at the forefront of all major developments in online video – from building the world’s first commercial adaptive streaming player to deploying first software-defined encoding service that runs on any cloud provider or in a data centre.

Broadcasters are looking for innovation and tailored solutions to help them adapt their existing OTT delivery models in response to competition from FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google) and other online players, while also looking to expand their footprint into new markets. At the same time, the partnership will provide content owners and producers with new formats and models of OTT content delivery to satisfy evolving demand and to position themselves in yet untapped B2B2C and B2C market segments.

Francesco Moretti, Deputy CEO of Fincons Group and CEO of Fincons.US, comments: “We are pleased to be working with a partner that has developed such innovative and versatile products. As we continue to expand internationally adding new locations as well as global clients to our roster, we remain committed to scouting the most effective and cutting-edge innovation for our clients.”

Oliver Botti, Head of International Business Development and Innovation at Fincons Group, adds: “At a time when the media and broadcast industry is undergoing such fast-paced change, we are confident that Fincons’ strengths combined with Bitmovin’s products provide the market with best-in-class services and solutions. Our objective is to enable clients to remain competitive by allowing them to explore new avenues and reach out to emerging market segments that were unthinkable just a few years ago.”

“Fincons Group has a track record of successful projects for companies with very specific requirements, which fits into our view that the market shift towards a more software-oriented approach fosters collaboration. Working together with strong partners enables us to leverage our combined skills and expertise to continue to solve our clients’ complex challenges and to deliver the best video experiences for consumers worldwide,” says Stefan Lederer, CEO of Bitmovin.
