Workshop Media Technology

COURSE 1: Basics for beginners & advanced students
COURSE 2: Advanced & live mixing for advanced students

Sound engineering is a challenge for most fellowships. Volunteer technicians meet ambitious musicians with specific ideas. Different demands, needs in the monitor mix and sound ideas create tension. As a rule, financial and human resources are also limited.

In addition, new tasks for fellowships have emerged with livestream and social media. Network technology plays an important role in these multimedia productions with audio, video and lighting, as it is the direct route into the world of social media.

This is exactly where this workshop comes in: Based on practical examples and with the help of the Schleife technique, we develop suitable solutions for different situations in the life of worship. Together we delve into the necessary basics and gain experience in the areas of audio, video and lighting.
