Rohde & Schwarz Advances Wireless Communications Both Locally and Globally

The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Rohde & Schwarz as a corporate sponsor.  For nearly 80 years, Rohde & Schwarz has stood for quality, precision, and innovation in all fields of wireless communications. The family-owned company is strategically based on four pillars: broadcasting, test and measurement, secure communications, and radio-monitoring.

In addition to test equipment and terrestrial transmitters for broadcasters, the company delivers powerful workflow and storage solutions via Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH (DVS). Rohde & Schwarz, a German company, has a team of sales and application engineers throughout the U.S., with regional offices in Maryland, Texas, California, and Oregon. With more than 8700 employees, representatives, in more than 70 countries, Rohde & Schwarz is dedicated to supporting customers both globally and locally.

Last summer, Rohde & Schwarz worked with three major sports events: the European Football Championship in June, Tour de France in July, and the Olympic Games in August. ParkPost, a Dutch provider for managed Broadcast IT services, integrated the Media Production Hub VENICE from Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH into the OB vans of its sister company DutchView, with whom they work closely together on many projects, to ensure fast and reliable ingest and playout of the recorded material.
