After the successful opticamSWITCH integration at Swiss television in 2011, the enter-prise unit in Lugano, RSI (Radiotelevisione Svizzera), updated its studio routing with Neutrik’s camera switch as well.
The latest fiber optic technology now connects the cameras of 4 studios with 2 control rooms. Further extensions are possible. For this purpose Neutrik
delivered 7 opticamSWITCHes as well as the whole fiber optic infrastructure to Lugano. A big challenge was the first combined integration of the opticamSWITCH
and BFE’s KSC Commander. The KSC Commander is a universal broadcast control system which gives the user a stand-ardized, manufacturer-independent user
interface for a variety of systems. After the ini-tial problems were resolved, the system was working stably for the final inspection on June 18, 2013. The
studios went live in September 2013. Now all cameras from any studio can be switched to every control room at the push of a button.
Thanks to the excellent teamwork of the BFE and Neutrik employees onsite as well as the good collaboration with the customer RSI another challenging project could be realized.
