Rohde & Schwarz buys DVS

Hanover-based DVS Digital Video Systems AG has been integrated into the Rohde & Schwarz group of companies.

"We are confident that this partnership will result in the transfer of valuable technology from the studio to broadcasting. Moreover, DVS will benefit from the international Rohde & Schwarz sales network", stated Jürgen Nies, Head of the Broadcasting Division at Rohde & Schwarz.

Dr.-Ing. Hans-Ulrich Weidenbruch, CEO of DVS and one of the company’s founders, approves of the strategic partnership with Rohde & Schwarz: "We are very pleased that, together with Rohde & Schwarz, we can continue to expand our innovative and technological potential."

In the film industry, the conversion of enormous amounts of digital film data to other formats is subject to even higher requirements than in the broadcasting industry. Complex algorithms ensure that data encoding and decoding is performed at highest resolutions and at maximum speed, with no loss in quality. "We are confident that Rohde & Schwarz will benefit in the area of development from the transfer of valuable technology from the studio to broadcasting," commented Jürgen Nies. "Conversely, we are also keen on DVS continuing to grow on its own – our worldwide sales network in more than 70 countries will help bring DVS products to the global market even more intensively." For this reason, the existing structures at the Hanover location and the other DVS subsidiaries will be retained. Just like other 100% Rohde & Schwarz subsidiaries, outwardly DVS Digital Video Systems AG will also appear as DVS, a Rohde & Schwarz company.
