Cornelius Heinemann will succeed Jürgen Nies, who is retiring on June 30 at the end of the 2018/2019 fiscal year. Jürgen Nies has been with Rohde & Schwarz for 30 years, including 12 years as Executive Vice President Broadcast and Media. During this time, he was instrumental in guiding the ongoing development of the division in a rapidly changing market. Jürgen Nies played a key role in the transition to digital products at Rohde & Schwarz. And the media product portfolio was expanded under his leadership.

Cornelius Heinemann has been with Rohde & Schwarz since 1991 and, since July 2007, has very successfully led the Transmitter and Amplifier Systems business unit within the Broadcast & Media Division. In 2016, he took on additional responsibility for the development of File Based Media Solutions in Hanover. The product portfolio in this area has since been brought completely up to date, and last year it was further expanded with the acquisition of Pixel Power.

The strategic orientation of Rohde & Schwarz Broadcast & Media is mainly based on two areas of core competence. With its unique expertise in broadcast equipment and high-efficiency power amplifiers, the company offers an industry-leading line of high-quality transmitter and amplifier products. Rohde & Schwarz also has comprehensive expertise in software-based signal processing, which it uses to develop market-leading solutions that are pioneering the transition to IT-based workflows in the media industry.
