From 3 May to 30 August 2020, the well-known TV show "Immer wieder Sonntags" with the presenter Stefan Mross takes place almost every Sunday, live from 10:03 am on Das Erste. From 14:30 the show will be repeated on SWR television.
VIDI operates a 1G data link for the customer SWR as the executing broadcaster for the transmission of the live TV signals as well as the necessary Ethernet connections from the event site in the Europapark Rust to the SWR broadcasting centre in Baden-Baden. The video and data connections are monitored and routed in VIDI's Network Operation Center (NOC) via VIDI's own Network Management System (VIDI NMS). In addition, a VIDI service technician is always on site during the live broadcasts to be able to intervene immediately in case of emergency.
