New Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH name reflects combined
expertise made available to the studio and broadcast market
DVS Digital Video Systems GmbH, which joined the Rohde & Schwarz group in December 2010, will now operate under the name Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH. The hardware and software specialist in the field of professional film and video post production will remain an independent organization within the Rohde & Schwarz group.
Rohde & Schwarz has added a top technology player to its roster of companies with the addition of Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH. Located in Hanover, Germany, the company is a pioneer in the manufacture of digital video systems and storage solutions for the film and TV industry. The applications for DVS technology range from the production of TV series and Hollywood blockbusters to the creation of 4K films for digital cinema. For nearly six decades, Rohde & Schwarz has been a market leader in broadcast transmission and T&M equipment. Jürgen Nies, Head of the Broadcasting Division at Rohde & Schwarz, said: “There is enormous potential for growth in both the broadcast and studio market. We believe that together we will now be able to make even better use of this potential.”
To better serve the market with both Rohde & Schwarz and DVS products, the two companies are combining their sales activities. As a result, DVS products to be developed in the future will also be marketed in over 70 countries via the worldwide Rohde & Schwarz sales network.
Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH currently has a workforce of about 130 employees. Dr.-Ing. Peter Spoer and Dr.-Ing. Hans-Ulrich Weidenbruch will retain their positions as CEOs and continue steering the course of the company. Everything will also remain the same at the company headquarters of Rohde & Schwarz DVS GmbH in Hanover.
