Rohde & Schwarz blue cranes for studio production and storage technology

MUNICH—Rohde & Schwarz has announced that its high-performance intelligent storage network, along with media servers for content preparation, has been deployed on Swiss Broadcaster blue, a popular subscription service that offers movies and entertainment content, as well as a popular sports service. .

Reliability, redundancy, low form factor and ease of installation were key factors in choosing R&S VENICE and R&S SpycerNode for the project, the broadcaster said. Future security and scalability were also important considerations, allowing Blue to move from the current 1080 / 25i to 50p with 4k and HDR / Ultra HD with outputs already installed on Ultra HD.
