BEST Consortium on Traffic and Travel Information services launched

June 24, 2011

Getting in touch with Public Service Broadcasters in the German-speaking area is easier than ever: ARD
(Germany), ORF (Austria) and SRG SSR (Switzerland) have established the BEST Consortium (Broadcasters
European Solution for Travel Information).

Hosted at Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT, Munich/Germany) the BEST Consortium will harmonise any travel
information related activity of their shareholders. The BEST Consortium has defined the need for a common
position on TPEGTM development and applications as its core business. Editorial exchange of travel information
will increase the services’ quality. BEST is a member of TISA.

The Global ITS community is invited to contact BEST as a portal to the market leaders for public service in the
German-speaking area. The Front office is directed by Ronald Mies, BEST Chairman is Thomas Kusche
