The 7th visit of the New Builders Community will give you an opportunity to visit the newly built News, Sports and Technology centre of SRF, the Swiss German broadcaster in Zurich.
The building, created and engineered by tpc, SRG technology & production centre, is remarkable for its production infrastructure which consists of a fully ST2110 based IP Backbone. The full IP technology platform has been designed to enable a whole set of new workflows and give content creators more flexibility and scalability to produce and distribute linear and non linear content.
In addition to a detailed overview about the production infrastructures, the visit will include talks on the vision and strategy of the project, change management and communication, new workflows and work processes; workplaces and space design. It will also include a tour of the new facilities.
In addition, a specific session will be organized to allow participants to update their peers on their own building project.
P.S. Please note that the building is finished but empty. Staff will start moving to the new SRF/tpc building in Zurich in November 2019 with a go on-air date planned for March 2020.
The visit will start at 12:00 on Monday 14 October and finish no later than 15:30 on Tuesday 15 October.
A networking dinner will be organized on Monday morning. Please note that the dinner will be at each participants’ expense. More information about the dinner will be given in due course.
