Hackdays 2020: develop the journalism of the future

On March 12 and 13, 2020, the SRG is organizing the hackdays for the sixth time, this year under the motto "Journalism of the Future". The hackdays take place simultaneously in Geneva, Lugano and Zurich - the number of places is limited. Be there and register now!

Let us shape the journalism of the future together. We work on solutions for around 30 hours on how media will be used in the future. Whether #data science, #audio, # A.I., #Storytelling, #blockchain, #robotics, #virtual reality, #connectivity, #mobility or # e-sports: Anything goes!

New Swiss Music API Mx3

All Swiss radio stations, with or without a licence, have access to the Mx3.ch database - the platform for modern Swiss music. The online music service, which was previously reserved for public service providers, is now also available to private radio stations.

In line with the new licence granted by the Federal Council, SRG is thus further intensifying its cooperation with the private media.

New API's

We have released new API's for you, that you can consume and create new apps and webpages.

The below are the list of new API’s:

  • Weather Forecast (easy to integrate)
  • EPG (Electronic Program Guide) for SRF, RTS, RSI,
  • RTS Lab (power API)
  • GIS Map (exposes the features of the SRG broadcast)
