End 2017 RTL left the historic building at Rue Bayard in Paris to re locate to Neuilly sur Seine close to the mother station "M6" TV .

Together with our technology partner DHD, we design a completely networked, decentralized and customer-specifically configured system solution. "By building RTL City we are building our future", says Elmar Heggen, RTL Group CFO and Head of the Corporate Center. The entire system is exclusively networked via structured wiring over Mono Mode Fiber or CAT6 data cables. By developing a statement of work (SOW), customer-specific workflows have been recorded together with RTL’s technology service provider BCE and implemented in the DHD system by Thum+Mahr experts. What arises is one of the world’s largest and most complex DHD systems. It will have various redundant audio and control network levels and the biggest DANTE audio network ever realized by broadcasters.
