Technological top performances for sports Tailor-made solutions for ARD and ZDF


When it comes to major sports events, broadcasters need a large amount of media-related equipment quickly and for a short period of time. As technical partner to German public broadcasters, we supplied ARD and ZDF

with extensive rental technology for the Olympic Games in Sochi. Our tailor-made solutions ensured the perfect complement to the equipment ARD and ZDF already used for broadcasting the event.

To be best prepared for the big live sport transmission, ARD and ZDF completed its mobile production unit with tapeless high-definition solutions from our Germany-based rental division. The extensive mobile production environment was combined with ZDF’s existing HD technology and delivered to Sochi, where it went into operation.
