"With more than 1 million unique users every month, Filmweb is the leading online video portal for trailers in Norway, a really cool client to work with"
Kasper Schlundt, Sales Manager EMEA, Xstream
More on how Filmweb became the leading online video portal of trailers in Norway
Filmweb is the leading online video portal of trailers in Norway, and operates as an IT company for the cinema and broadcasters industry in Norway.
Filmweb needed a platform to show all their trailers on, a platform where the same content could be used for several independent websites. An important feature for Filmweb when choosing an online video platform was that the solution had to be easy-to-use and contribute to ease and automate workflows, so that Filmweb could focus on content and not the time consuming processing and technology.
Filmweb decided to use Xstream’s Online Video Platform, MediaMaker, to encode, manage, distribute to all platforms, syndicate, track viewers engagement per video and category, most seen trailers, media scheduling and much more.
With more than 1 million unique users every month, Filmweb is the leading online video portal for trailers in Norway. Filmweb has been using Xstream’s online video platform since 2008 to stream their content out on all kind of platforms. Filmweb is using MediaMaker for media management assets, encoding, distribution and hosting on more than 80 independent websites.
Xstream MediaMaker™ is the preferred video management system by leading telcos, cable operators, network and broadcasters, enabling them to create, manage, deliver and monetize simply smarter OTT and TV Everywhere solutions characterized by superior flexibility, usablitlity, scalability and cost-efficiency.
