Gabriel Leuzinger gained his skill set starting with Test and HW-Development. Through his years with large Telecom suppliers, he had designed more than 20 boards, from fiber optical receivers to converters and various other interfaces. He then changed to customer relations, supporting tendering, releases, trade shows and providing trainings. After a short excursion into the Security Industry, which already in the year 2002 recorded more than 5000 camera-signals using IP-technology, he returned back to the broadcast world. At Swiss national broadcaster SRG SSR, he had been working with a team who was responsable for planning, engineering, implementation and operation of the high availability platforms for DVB, DAB, streaming, baseband infrastructure and supervision systems of the broadcast distribution chain. Having experienced several technological changes, Gabriel is assessing the actual migration to IP-technology as one of the most interesting and challenging time of his worklife.
