Norddeutscher Rundfunk publishes the website of the NDR-Elbphilharmonie Orchestra using the Sophora content management system

The numbers don’t lie. The Elbphilharmonie is a visitor magnet. Via the website, friends of the concert house, located directly on the banks of the Elbe, can find up-to-date information regarding tickets, concert schedules, special programming, and videos. Background information of various composers and the 116-piece ensemble is also included. Sophora supports responsive web design for mobile devices so there is interactive content available for ticket holders via their tablet or smart phone while on the way to the concert hall.

Norddeutscher Rundfunk relies on the subshell CMS for the provision of their multimedia service. In addition to the playout of content, Sophora enables the integration of audio, video and image files. Delivering to its own YouTube channel, with both up-to-date videos and archival footage, is easy for the NDR editorial team with the use of the Sophora add-on YouTube connector. Via this add-on, videos can easily be published, updated and removed directly to and from YouTube.
