What is your mission as a company?
Fincons’ long-term vision is focused on our clients’ needs and oriented towards constant and progressive growth in full awareness of our social impact.
Its founder Michele Moretti, along with his son Francesco Moretti are inspired by family values and they strongly believe that Fincons’ growth could not be accomplished without human and qualitative values as well as close and constructive relationships in every aspect of the business, with clients, territories, and partners.

Fincons stands out for its flexibility and commitment to understand client needs and effectively support them with the right resources and solutions to achieve their business goals.
This is an empathetic approach, to create what we call ‘customer intimacy’, which has always rewarded Fincons, aiding the development of successful relationships that stand the test of time with its customers and partners.
Moreover, Fincons relies on highly qualified resources with technical skills and a great attitude to bring concrete innovation and deep domain-specific knowledge both on a business and processes side.
What is the most exciting thing coming up for Fincons?
Innovation is in Fincons’ DNA; the Group has been investing for several years in HbbTV technology and is now ready for HbbTV Targeted Advertising (TA).
Moreover, Fincons is a pioneer of DVB-I, having implemented the first running pilot with several use cases together with a major broadcaster, and is now preparing a field trial running on commercially available TV sets for the Italian market.
Starting from this pilot, we’ve already developed a library of reusable components to enable key features for a practical adoption of DVB-I, combined with HbbTV, such as: multicast ABR, DRM content protection and low latency optimization.
What is the biggest issue you think we can address together through cross-industry collaboration?
The successful deployment of innovations such as HbbTV TA and DVB-I requires solid and rapid implementation.
We are keen to contribute to innovative initiatives driven by DTG members, in particular regarding HbbTV TA and DVB-I.
We would be glad to make our implementation experience and skill, as well as our software libraries, available to all of the DTG community, effectively accelerating pilots and trial initiatives as also in-production services.
