SOMEDIA/TVSO again opts for GENESIX VideoServers

SOMEDIA/TVSO is a leading family-owned media company in South-East Switzerland and one of the oldest customers of STRYME and ITcon4Media, the Austrian video server manufacturer’s exclusive partner for Germany and Switzerland.

After eight years of uninterrupted 24/7 playout automation, the GENESIX VideoServers installed in 2013 had reached the end of their product lifecycles. SOMEDIA/TVSO again chose ITcon4Media to set up and install two brand new GENESIX VideoServers. In doing so, the broadcaster stepped up the studio’s playout functionalities with STRYME’S state-of-the-art technology. After having two server installed in and running since 2013, SOMEDIA again chose STRYME for brand new GENESIX VideoServers, installed and set up by ITcon4media.

As the leading regional broadcaster, SOMEDIA/TVSO reaches thousands of viewers daily across the cantons Grisons, Glarus, and parts of St. Gall with news, sports and entertainment. Reliable high-quality content and ease of use are key to the success of the modern media company. “Back in 2013, our goal was to simplify and optimize studio operations,” says Freddy Eggenberger, Head of Production & Technology at SOMEDIA/TVSO. “The two video servers made by STRYME did that, and more. They impressed us with user-friendliness and around-the-clock failsafe operations ever since. When it was time to renew them, the latest generation GENESIX VideoServers were our first choice. Their technology is designed to meet our needs as a user, not the other way around. Besides that, we knew that we would again benefit from a sophisticated failsafe solution at a reasonable price.”
