In November 2014, the Rohde & Schwarz Broadcasting Division was renamed Broadcast and Media Division. This emphasized the company’s growing commitment in the studio market as well as the expansion of its product portfolio across the entire value added chain. What the company calls the next logical step is now taking place with the complete integration of the Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH subsidiary into the parent company. "We have had a common vision for a long time. Now we have merged perfectly to continue on our successful path," said Juergen Nies, head of the division.
One of the advantages afforded by the integration is direct access to a wide-ranging global service and sales network. In addition, the group maintains production facilities of its own in Europe, ensuring that the high quality standards people have come to expect are met. The award-winning plants of Rohde & Schwarz score points with a proportion of in-house manufacturing that is unique in the industry, along with technical know-how and optimized processes.
Development and product management will remain at the Hanover location. The company’s innovative products support, for example, the broadcasting industry with the rollout of new technologies such as high dynamic range and the high resolution 4K standard.
The R&S Clipster mastering station is the global benchmark for the mastering of feature films, and continues to set new standards in the film industry. The R&S Venice ingest and playout platform is a tried and tested broadcast solution. It proved itself at this year's Berlin International Film Festival as a key component in the workflow where it digitized the diverse material and prepared it for post-processing. In addition, audio/video head-end solutions, transmitters and T&M equipment are also part of the Rohde & Schwarz broadcast and media product portfolio.
