We give brands a new dimension

BurdaStudios is based on three areas of business: digital pictures, digital publishing and entertainment. Within BurdaStudios Pictures, Burda Studios Pictures GmbH produces successful formats such as the motoring magazine Grip on RTL II, K1 Magazin, Focus TV Reportage and productions for ZDF zoom/ZDF zeit and RTL – working for all relevant German public and private TV stations.

We also run the only 24/7 food channel, BonGusto (pay TV), which broadcasts international reports, in-house productions and documentaries round the clock. Video-Factory is responsible for all Burda brands and events and for producing customer commissions (corporate and advertising).

In terms of digital publishing, Burda Studios Publishing GmbH is responsible for the highly successful Bunte.de and is expanding its portfolio to include innovative, digital products and the social-only video service BNow!

Through tracdelight GmbH, the division is developing new e-commerce strategies and influencer campaigns for customers and publishers. The Word-of-Mouth unit generates extensive product insights and social contacts via various referral marketing concepts. Within the Content-Factory, BurdaStudios monetises its publishing expertise via external clients (e.g. Zalando) and produces user-relevant content for native advertising campaigns. Crowdfunding for music lovers: Germany’s first crowdfunding music label, Musicstarter provides a platform for talented new artists like Elaiza.

Meanwhile, StarnetOne specialises in entertainment: Bambi, the Tribute to Bambi charity event, the Jupiter Award and the Bunte New Faces Award are among the division’s outstanding productions.
