Switzerland's public radio and television broadcaster SRG has decided to implement OpenMedia from German software provider Annova as the global newsroom system across its entire network.

Since 1 August 2011 all broadcast entities within SRG have access to the full range of OpenMedia tools and services for tri-media news production and rundown management workflows.

According to Annova, the global implementation will enable stronger collaboration across departments and more effective management of programming and planning for the 2,000 SRG journalists. While each division has the ability to build their own workflows, it will be easier for them to adopt best practices from one another.
