Pensoft's ARPHA Publishing Platform <arphahub.com> has launched a 
conference proceedings module 
<http://arphahub.com/about/services#Proceedings_module> among its many 
services <http://arphahub.com/about/services> offered to organisations 
and publishers. A publication of conference proceedings may happen under 
own (white label also possible) publishing platform (example 
<https://biss.pensoft.net/>), or as a collection of conference outputs 
(abstracts enhanced with data, multimedia, illustrations citations, 
posters, presentations and/or full-text papers) within a general 
proceedings journal.

Video recordings of the talks and presentations can be uploaded on each 
abstract page (also retroactively, after the conference) (example 

All conference outputs (including abstracts) are published in both 
human-readable (semantic HTML, PDF) and machine-readable (JATS XML) 
formats (naturally with DOIs), indexed and archived in several places. 
Individual images and data files are published under own DOIs as well 
and submitted and archived in Zenodo.

There is quite more to tell about it. Happy to discuss a collaboration 
with anyone interested.
