Broadcast, T&M and post production equipment for broadcasters, industry and studios
Audiovisual media paint the picture of our time. What started out as broadcasting more than 100 years ago is now a rapidly growing multimedia universe. Analog transmitter networks have been largely replaced by digital terrestrial audio and video broadcasting. Rohde & Schwarz enabled and supported this development as a market leader right from the start with pilot projects and reference solutions. Today, the entire transmission chain from production and studio to the transmitter and consumer is digital. In addition to terrestrial transmitters, satellites and cable TV networks, Internet TV and radio are becoming ever more widespread vehicles for program distribution. Like the entire entertainment industry, the broadcast market is undergoing continuous evolution. Rohde & Schwarz supports the broadcast and media industry with groundbreaking solutions for coping with these changes. We already offer a complete portfolio for setting up a UHDTV (4K) workflow from the studio to the transmitter as well as the first products for even higher resolutions (8K).
Consumer electronics such as high-resolution cameras, TV and associated broadband A/V interfaces are often the technological drivers of the media industry. Special T&M equipment is required to develop and manufacture these products efficiently and in line with specifications while ensuring high quality – and this is what Rohde & Schwarz provides. Our products are designed as highly integrated modular platforms and perfectly tailored to the requirements of our customers as variable and future-ready solutions.
Test and measurement equipment is also required to install, maintain and monitor broadcast networks and to develop and manufacture infrastructure components. Rohde & Schwarz offers network operators more than a complete range of terrestrial transmitters for all power classes and standards. We also have the T&M and monitoring equipment required for broadcasting operations.
Before a video can be distributed, it must be formatted for all intended output channels, e.g. broadcasting, cinema, Blu ray or DVD. This is a job for Rohde & Schwarz post production equipment. Our video workstations are the de facto standard in Hollywood and other film capitals. They form entire workflow environments for post production studios when coupled with our high performance video server and storage solutions. Headends provide the appropriate realtime encoding for each connected transmission network (terrestrial, cable, satellite or IPTV).
