Utilizing DEV Systemtechnik’s advanced optical and coaxial RF systems Qvest Media has planned and integrated WELT’s state of the art satellite infrastructure in the new WELT HQ in Berlin.
Qvest Media had been contracted to plan and install the new satellite infrastructure for WELT’s new broadcast and play-out center in Berlin. WELT (former N24) is Germany’s leading private news boradcaster providing services over cable, satellite, DVB-T2 and IPTV.
A key challenge was the integration of 3 existing motorized antennas from the existing distant site with the network in the new HQ consisting of new 7 Antennas in another location. All antennas together deliver 42 RF L-Band signals which are consolidated and controlled in the new broadcast center office in the heart of Berlin.
Qvest Media has chosen a matching combination of DEVs modular advanced Optribution RF over fiber systems for transmission and an Archimedes Matrix for switching and combing of the signals as well as a matching redundancy options in combination with constant signal monitoring to assure flawless quality services 24/7. The new infrastructure of WELT in Berlin is live since April 24th 2021.
“We are very pleased that we can offer our long-standing partner Qvest Media a field proven, matching solution and can contribute to this key project “, states Manfred Mettendorff, Managing Director of DEV Systemtechnik. “Qvest Media has an excellent track record in the industry and a good understanding of DEV’s solutions.
