broadcaster, Schweizer Radio
und Fernsehen (SRF). SSG SSR
is responsible for all production
systems and technologies throughout
television, radio and multimedia
operations at SRF. A revolutionary
News and Sports Centre for SRF is
the most ambitious project that SRF
and SSG SSR have embarked on for
decades. The facility - located in the
Leutschenbach district of Z├╝rich - is
being built specifically to leverage
an IP workflow for significantly

streamlined and simplified operational
processes. Its cornerstones are digital
first and mobile first with a tight focus
on video and audio quality. The project
sees a change away from programmeoriented organisation to a story and
content-oriented focus. Within the
new structure, journalists will be
organised as expert teams and not on
programme structures.
From day one, SSG SSR set out with
the ambition of creating a new and
radically different production solution.
R&S SpycerNode

Included in this approach was its
multiviewer system needs: from the
earliest stages, SSG SSR sought a fully
virtualised multiviewer architecture.
"With a completely virtualised
platform we get the flexibility that we
always wanted from a multiviewer
system," explains Andreas Lattmann,
Chief Technology Officer, Planning
& Projects at SSG SSR. "Hardware
agnostic, integrated in the network
and capable to display whatever and
wherever needed."
Within SSG SSR's new facility, there
exists a master switching room, central
ingest, many studios and galleries with
different multiviewer needs, as well
as a new playout and postproduction
system. "Within this environment, the
demands for multiviewing are very
high and mission critical," explains
Lattmann. "Everybody in the building
has different needs to see what's going
on and where. With Rohde & Schwarz's
PRISMON Multiviewer system we now
have the chance to fulfil all these
requirements and keep the flexibility

to change whenever needed.
"With the inherent flexibility of a
virtualised multiviewer system we can
support the operational teams as well
as the journalists by showing them
the specific sources and destinations
that are required for their work and
nothing less or more. Dynamic setups
and the sheer number of signals that
can be handled by PRISMON helps us in
supporting the efficiency of everyone,"
Lattmann explains.
The COVID Factor
As we recover from the coronavirus
pandemic, I believe that we will see
new workflows in the future. Some
customers will return to their old
traditional workflows, but we see
increasing numbers of organisations
looking to move forward. They are
looking for true IP connection across
all the elements of their production
workflows including storage, and the
flexibility to choose either OPEX or
CAPEX payment models.
In this environment, they need to
be prepared for anything that might
be thrown at them, and this is where
Rohde & Schwarz's software platform
approach can add real value. For more
