Gütersloh, September 28, 2022 – Bertelsmann released its new image film today. The film was first screened to the more than 500 top international executives attending the Bertelsmann Management Meeting at the media, services, and education company’s headquarters in Gütersloh, Germany.

Under the heading “Bertelsmann is all this and more,” the short film illustrates Bertelsmann’s diversity and internationality. In just over two minutes, viewers are guided through the seven divisions: RTL Group, Penguin Random House, BMG, Arvato, Bertelsmann Printing Group, Bertelsmann Education Group, and Bertelsmann Investments. They learn, for example, that more than 4.5 million subscribers use RTL Group’s streaming services, that BMG has more than 3 million songs and recordings in its repertoire, and that Arvato’s data center has a storage capacity of 43.7 petabytes.

Karin Schlautmann, Executive Vice President Corporate Communications Bertelsmann, said: “We are very excited about our new corporate movie, which once again presents the strengths of this unique company. The film plays with Bertelsmann’s versatility and shows viewers the company from different perspectives.”

Seven international actors describe their personal perception of Bertelsmann, as key facts, figures, and data about the individual divisions are conveyed. Bertelsmann CEO Thomas Rabe sums up the company’s versatility at the end of the film when he says: “Bertelsmann is all this and more.”

The corporate video was designed with the Bertelsmann subsidiary Territory, works with fast, modern effects and is available in German as well as English.
