Career Prospects

In media production and distribution, current and to some degree completely new demands are developing for media technicians in the AV-sector. Because of increasing "user-generated content", new possibilities for the individualisation and differentiation of media content are required. This includes, for example, public relations as well as interactive technologies. On the other hand, new digital-media technologies are being developed to the point of market readiness in ever shorter cycles. Their targeted and efficient use requires an enormous amount of specialized knowledge.
