Riedel Communications has announced the establishment of the new Technology Hub Berlin, situated at the “Checkpoint Charlie” region of the German city and joining existing hubs set up by the company in Wuppertal, Eisenberg, Vienna, Zurich, Montreal, and Porto.
Each hub focuses on specific aspects of engineering with an emphasis on adapting to industry changes, such as the transition to IP-based transport of media signals in the broadcast industry. Technology Hub Berlin leverages the experience of former employees of Jünger Audio — which sold a portion of its divisions to Riedel in 2019 — who are noted for their experience in developing advanced digital audio processors and algorithms for live production, television, radio stations, and streaming services. Meanwhile, the hub’s Innovation Lab, focuses product innovation in software-based media processing, networking, virtualization, and deployment.
The Technology Hub Berlin houses a dedicated system engineering team focused on the development of next-generation wireless communications. With a current team of eight professionals, the hub is seeking international talents to join its ranks. Riedel states that the office, designed to accommodate up to 15 people, aims to become a focal point for talent across various specialties.
“Berlin provides the ideal backdrop for our Technology Hub, offering a diverse pool of talent and fostering an environment conducive to innovation,” says Peter Glättli, executive director R&D, Riedel Communications. “We are excited about the current team of experts and look forward to welcoming additional international talents to contribute to our continued success in developing groundbreaking solutions for the broadcast and event industry.”
