SGT, a leading European software vendor in the broadcast and media industry, announced that the Swiss audiovisual production firm TPC (technology and production center Switzerland ag) has chosen SGT's VEDA software solution for broadcast center in Zurich. TPC is a subsidiary of SRG SSR and handles the production and broadcasting of the German-speaking SRF radio and television programs in Switzerland.

SGT already successfully provided playout automation solutions for TPC's sister companies RTS (Radio Télévision Suisse) for the French speaking and RSI (Radiotelevisione svizzera di lingua italiana) for the Italian speaking populations in Switzerland.

In the course of this year, SGT will implement the new playout automation system for four transmission chains, German-speaking TV channels SF1, SF2, SFInfo and one reserve channel (to be used as rescue channel).
