Télévision Suisse Romande (TSR) is Switzerland’s national broadcaster for the French speaking section of the country. This beautiful and peaceful area with cities and villages as renowned as Geneva, Gruyère or Montreux is home to a national and international mix of personalities, some of them well-known celebrities such as Phil Collins or Michael Schumacher.
The TSR tower, which happens to be the highest building in the city of Geneva and visible citywide, was originally built in the 70s and served as the original home for the audio rooms, a number of other technical facilities, as well as offices. The tower is scheduled for a complete overhaul over the next few years, and the technical facilities therefore needed to be re-located to other buildings on the TSR campus. In parallel with the new construction, the entire technological infrastructure was overhauled as well – in fact, the TSR facilities are now prepared to take the step towards completely tapeless operation.
