A few days after announcing it had set a revenue record in its last fiscal year, Ross Video added another notch on its belt this week with the news it is backing streaming services for Yahoo Finance.

The Ottawa-based video production and broadcast company announced earlier this week that it is partnering with Astuce Media to power eight hours of financial news streaming daily for the financial news site. Ross Video’s tech will underpin the stream’s 3D graphics, social media integration and asset management system.

Yahoo Finance is the most popular business news site in the United States by monthly traffic, according to several sources.

The deal is the latest bit of good news at an already-rolling Ross Video. CEO David Ross told OBJ last week that the company had hit its 27th consecutive year of record revenues in fiscal 2018. He added then that streaming services are an increasingly important market segment for the firm.

“The more streams, the more content and the more content, they need more technology from Ross,” he said.
