Danish Radio Selects Quartz for New HeadquartersQuartz wins contract for new centralized TV and Radio Center (August 27, 2004)
Quartz, world leaders in routing and master control, has announced that it has won the contract to supply the entire video routing infrastructure at DR-Byen, the new multimedia powerhouse for Danmark’s Radio, Copenhagen.
The highly publicized project will consolidate DR Radio, DR TV, DR Online, DR multimedia, and a concert hall, previously at 12 different addresses, into one central location in the northern part of Orestad on the outskirts of Copenhagen. The development is deemed to be Europe’s largest broadcasting venture yet.
Quartz will provide Danmarks Radio (Denmark’s national broadcast organization) with a minimum of four new stand alone Xenon signal processing routers, launched at NAB this year, plus two Q256 routers with the ability to expand to 512 x 512.
The contract was awarded to Quartz above other router manufacturers, following a European Union tender process with highly stringent technical and commercial criteria.
Quartz secured the contract in close cooperation with its Danish distributor Holmberg-Consult Aps.
The overall project began in June 2002 and is due for completion in January 2006. Three thousand DR staff will be located at the new facilities, which will be formally opened by the Queen of Denmark.
Detailed information on the overall project is available on the Web at www.dr.dk/drbyen
