The 29th Tonmeistertagung in Cologne was a huge success
A powerful congress program, an exciting exhibition and enormous interest from the many visitors – this is the recent Tonmeistertagung in a nutshell. The VDT used the congress as an opportunity to open up further to new audiences. For the first time ever, event technicians focussing on audio were explicitly invited along with media designers. "The industry is changing and broadening, and as a professional association VDT is following this trend," Carlos Albrecht, President of the VDT, commented on the development.
The program ended on Sunday with a compelling lecture on cinematic audio lead by Martin Steyer, which aligned with 3D audio, one of the congress‘s main topics. During Saturday night, the technicians crew converted the 3D sound reinforcement system in lecture hall R3 into a standard-compliant Dolby Atmos cinema sound system.
The program provided many more topics. You can see just how many – it had something for every visitor, from trainees to experienced professionals – in the congress program (»here) and on our brand new Vimeo channel TMT-2016. During prime time, new vlogs were added virtually every half hour, which were produced by a dedicated editorial and production team of media designer trainees directed by the ARD.ZDF Medienakademie.
Young talent and industry greats alike were spoilt for choice over the four days at the Tonmeistertagung. An extraordinary congress program played in parallel in five lecture halls, covering many technical and artistics aspects. VDT was able to secure speakers of international renown, both in classical music and in pop, rock and jazz.
Having grown once more, the exhibition showcased the latest audio equipment. You can find a list of exhibitors and contact details »here.
Carlos Albrecht and the entire team at VDT is delighted about the successful congress. "Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to this event!
