Enhancement of SRG SSR´s VICO Platform completed

VICO Platform

Dimetis GmbH announces the successful rollout of the massive enhancement of the VICO Platform for the Schweizerische Rundfunkgesellschaft (SRG) project. Dimetis renewed the VICO Platform and further enhanced as a high available, distributed and scalable system based on Dimetis´ BOSS FILE TRANSFER Manager™. The modern HTML5 and JavaScript WebGUI architecture facilitates intuitive and simple operation for users without extensive technical background. The complex processes run in the background while users can focus on their core business.


Higher reliability and resiliency is achieved by improved high availability. The container based active-active failover handling moves processes automatically to other systems in the case of emergency. This leads to a significant push for security and capacity by the new setup and results in an improved overall performance. As an additional highlight, the embedded FTP Server solution supports now the end-to-end monitoring of incoming news from agencies. The data is sent directly to the application by FTP Client. After the initial implementation at SRG in 2012, the VICO Platform has been continuously advanced.

The basis of the development, the BOSS FILE TRANSFER Manager™ integrates all interfaces to third party systems, e.g. a transcoder, MXF-File-Checker or Workflow-File Transfer, – to name only a few. Other basic functionalities are reading out metadata, the integration of active directory with LDAP and automatic transcoding of video files to in-house formats during ingest.
