Introduction of a new traffic editorial system

With the planned Germany-wide changeover of the TMC standard to TPEG, it was necessary for BR to replace its existing traffic editing system with a TPEG-capable one in the course of future viability.
The BR commissioned sommer + spohr to support the complete project from the tender to the go-live. Among our most important tasks were:


  • Requirement specification incl. preparation of the bill of quantities and the evaluation matrices

  • Moderation of the negotiation talks with the manufacturers

  • Project management and leadership of the internal project group as well as the selected manufacturer

  • Protection requirements analysis and creation of security concept

  • Support negotiations with all parties involved and creation of a comprehensive support concept

BR now has an open and web-based solution that optimally supports the technical workflows of the traffic editors. In addition, an important operational requirement was met – the externalization of operations. As a result, BR has the first broadcast-critical and externally operated application in the ARD.
