Rohde & Schwarz has launched an innovation project in the area of broadcast and digital media. The electronics group is primarily looking for solutions for the next generation of audio and video processing for film and television as well as solutions for the fast transfer of audio and video data via IP/Ethernet. Rohde & Schwarz is also interested in topics involving RF-based audio and video supply and distribution. The goal of the project is to find potential cooperation partners who are already working on solutions in this field. Startups and young companies from all over the world who have the right kinds of ideas can submit proposals to Rohde & Schwarz. A prototype for demonstrating the proposal's technical readiness should already exist. The most interesting companies will be invited to Munich to attend the Broadcast and Digital Media Innovation Forum in May 2014. Face-to-face meetings with Rohde & Schwarz employees will be held in order to discuss potential partnerships and funding opportunities. The partnership might take the form of a strategic investment or as a development collaboration. Conceivable possibilities also include jointly developing the customer relationship in the area of sales or licensing agreements, for example.
Applications must be received by February 28. For more information, visit www.broadcast-innovation.rohde-schwarz.com.
