At the heart of Swisscom Broadcast is the transmission of radio and television signals. We channel content from SRG SSR (the Swiss public broadcasting organisation), private television and radio providers and event organisers to our transmitter sites and broadcast them far and wide. Sound and images are reliably delivered to your customers, regardless of whether they’re driving to work or snowed in at an isolated mountain cabin waiting for the weather to change.
After your content leaves the studio, we process it in preparation for its journey to our transmitter sites. From there, it is broadcast using either VHF, DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting) or DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting – Terrestrial).
We work together with you to plan and build your entire radio or television station network. If you would prefer to build it yourself, you can take advantage of our telehousing services and share our transmitter sites. We’ll even help you apply for the necessary building permits. A reliable and actively monitored signal transport system will then convey your content from the studio to the transmitter site with a guaranteed bit rate and 24/7 network management – we call it Broadcast Highway Audio. Alternatively, we can transport your data using our microwave radio relay network.
One of our special offers is the ‘teleraetia’ terrestrial pay TV network. This network supplies Graubünden with nine radio stations and twenty television channels.
All our services are also offered as part of a business model. We work with you in close collaboration to precisely define the requirements that the solution must meet. We handle the planning, construction and financing of the required network, take responsibility for its operation and ensure that the technology is kept up to date. So you won’t have to worry about a thing.
One of Swisscom Broadcast’s most important clients is the Swiss public broadcasting organisation (SRG SSR). We take care of all aspects of the operation of about 1,350 transmitter facilities on its behalf. Around the clock.
