Verband Deutscher Tonmeister
The Verband Deutscher Tonmeister (VDT) is a professional association for tonmeisters based in Germany.
We are audio professionals who work in arts, media and communication and share a desire to preserve and improve on the aesthetic and technical quality of our products. We represent the interests of our members in professional, social and business matters, and we‘re open to the global community of audio creatives with a broad range of professions and job titles. Our more than 2100 members include recording, broadcast, film, multimedia and theatre professionals as well as media, manufacturer and event industry representatives, along with researchers, developers, and educators. Students comprise about 10% of the membership.
The VDT is supported by sustaining corporate members that support our ideals and provide funding.
VDT provides a platform for professionals, manufacturers, suppliers, developers and scientists to meet and share knowledge. We host the bi-annual Tonmeistertagung and other international events, organize seminars and work with other associations and institutes. Membership benefits include discounted or even free access to events, the VDT magazine and other publications, a discussion forum, the Tonmeister Awards, legal advice, and numerous personal networking opportunities. Members may also obtain insurance coverage tailored to their specific profession at very favourable rates.
