Potsdam, 5 September 2018.
The MediaTech Con is the new conference for future media technologies in Potsdam-Babelsberg. It is being held for the first time on 14 and 15 November, 2018. The two previously
established conference brands Changing the Picture and VR NOW Con & Awards are a part of the MediaTech Con. The three conferences rolled into one will be
offering their delegates a joint two-day international platform with visionary presentations, talks and workshops in Potsdam-Babelsberg – and will thus be right at the interface of technology,
content and application. The use for those companies not directly part of the media industry is therefore be a foremost concern and will be supported by the MeetToMatch business networking
platform. The organisers are offering a joint ticket and numerous opportunities for networking and communication. Further information at www.mediatech-con.de.
The MediaTech Con is dedicated to the technology-driven production of content and the media business. The MediaTech Con is being organised by the MediaTech Hub
Potsdam. Potsdam was named as one of 12 Digital Hubs by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. It is part of an extensive network which is made up of companies, startups,
investors, institutions, universities and research institutes from the core sectors of Media Technology, Film, Virtual Reality, Digital Engineering, Edutainment, Data Visualisation, Gamification
as well as interface sectors. Future Media Technologies are changing the whole value chain for the media, entertainment and film industries – from industrial production, Digital Engineering,
Virtual/Mixed Augmented Reality through to Volumetric VR.

television and digital production sectors. CTPiX is organised by transfermedia production services. The conference is being held this year for the sixth time.
