Rohde & Schwarz brings GMIT in house
GMIT will be fully integrated into Rohde & Schwarz by the end of January 2019 and retroactively to July 1, 2018. The move allows Rohde & Schwarz to reinforce its commitment to digital products. The focal points are the R&S PRISMON audio/video content monitoring and multiviewer solution and the R&S RelayCaster IP contribution solution.
The 2010 acquisition of GMIT brought software-based, cloud-enabled solutions to Rohde & Schwarz's product line.
The key products R&S PRISMON and R&S RelayCaster will be transferred to Rohde & Schwarz and marketed through a broader global service and sales network as well as through a partner network.
"We have been working on this shift towards digital products for some time and now have the right organisation to focus more on this market," emphasizes Hannes Strobel, Vice President Monitoring & Headend.
All GMIT employees will be taken on by Rohde & Schwarz until the integration is completed and will remain the contacts for this product area. All contractual obligations and warranties vis-à-vis partners and customers remain in effect.
The R&S RelayCaster IP contribution solution helps ensure the reliable feed and distribution of live A/V content via unmanaged IP networks, which is especially advantageous for providers with large networks.
The R&S PRISMON monitoring and multiviewer solution for broadcast and streaming media provides a single platform for automatic, convergent monitoring of media content transported in networks.
