What people are saying
It’s very important to us what our clients think of our products and services. Here are just a few words from some of them:
“We started working with RTSW in 2007 when we replaced our virtual graphics systems for the Rugby Super League during the move to HD. Their system ticked all the boxes, not only handling the VR side but also incorporating HD video in the virtual Jumbotron graphics.”
DARREN LONG, HEAD OF OPERATIONS, SKY SPORTS
Trans Gulf Media is an established broadcast solutions provider for the Middle East market. Saudi TV wanted to raise its game for its coverage of the 2014 King Cup football tournament and chose TGM as producers using products and services from RT Software. A production crew with staff from both companies provided innovative hi-tech graphics solutions that included giant touchscreens, an interactive ‘touch table’ and augmented reality graphics on the studio floor. Against a tight schedule stunning results were achieved.

“The new tOG Sports product gives the sort of added value in match graphics our customers want, and our investment in two systems has quickly become an important revenue stream for us”.
NEALE CONNELL, DIRECTOR, ALSTON ELLIOT
“Setanta sports Ireland decided to implement RTSW in our studio in Dublin in August 2007. The reason for using VR sets was an easy one: we could offer all of our programmes their own virtual set instead of building 8 or more hard sets. RTSW were able to deliver on time even under the pressure of our on air dates. We originally had 3 cameras with VR and in December 2007 increased to 4 cameras, 2009 will see Setanta install RTSW 3D software and install floor tracking giving Setanta greater options on our camera shots in Studio.
Setanta studios would often have a commercial break between programmes, only allowing a short turn-around time to change sets. This was only possible with RT Software’s tOG-VR software giving us the stability and flexibility we required. Since implementation, we have received continuous support and updates from the Services teams at RT Software”.
DAVID COOPER, HEAD OF STUDIOS, SETANTA SPORTS, IRELAND
“RTSW has proven to be a valuable partner in our securing of the Gala TV contract. The virtual studio they have provided has given the show the required lift and we have an extremely happy client”

“Snell and Quantel offer a wide range of broadcast solutions, with the RT Software relationship focussed around embedded graphics for the ICE Channel in a Box product family. The first product iteration was to integrate high quality fully featured 3d graphics into the ICE platform, which proved extremely successful. We also quickly established there was a high demand for the inherent simplicity of 2d graphics and RT delivered a 2d graphics solution for us in a very short time frame. RT Software has become a truly valued partner with an in depth understanding of end to end broadcast solutions and are of course experts in live graphics.”
KARL MEHRING, Head of Product Architecture, TV Everywhere - Snell Group
Protea is a long established Grass Valley Reseller in South Africa. We first started working with RT Software through the GV Edition of tOG Sports that works seamlessly with the K2 and Dyno sports video server solution from Grass. But we soon learnt that RTSW has a full range of graphics solutions that we are now establishing an expanding client base for in South Africa. RT has been hands on assisting us with proposals, sales support and having their products and staff on our booth at local shows.”
SHAUN KERR, Divisional Manager-Broadcast and Multimedia - Protea Electronics (Pty) Ltd, South Africa
We reviewed our CG strategy towards the end of 2007. We finally decided on tOG-3d after researching the whole market. tOG-3d provided a single, open, platform for 3d graphics and virtual studios. This allowed us to expand into VR sets from our current on screen graphics. It was also supplied by a company focussed on graphics and with good experience of our industry. We have implemented several new sets of exciting graphics which have pushed the envelope far beyond what we imagined and there has not been a single idea that we came up with that could not be implemented, and the systems have been 100% reliable on air.”
PAUL UNDERWOOD, HEAD OF OPERATIONS, BUONGIORNO iTV
“Cellcast required graphics systems that went way beyond traditional CG. To achieve easy and cost effective deployment and management we required a PC based platform that offered as much functionality as possible from a small footprint. tOG-3d was ideal as it handled all of our 3d graphics requirements with ease, but also gave us the ability to play clips both within the scene and as full screen graphics, handled DVE moves and even audio. It gave us a VR capability when needed”.
MARTIN QUINLAN, CTO, CELLCAST
“Our game shows make use of huge data sets, and tOG-3d’s ability to work this data in real time means we can really personalise the graphics but within the constraints of low operating costs and automation. We initially chose tOG-3d because of the quality of the graphics at an affordable cost, but soon realised we also had a product that was easy to implement, control, and manage.”
PETER CAVANAGH, DIRECTOR, MIRADA
“We moved to 3d graphics in 2008 and needed a product with good, local support – as well as flexibility and value for money. We chose tOG-3d and it has been in daily use since then. We have done tests using it as a single camera virtual studio solution and were very impressed. In all, it has been a good choice.”
