We are always looking for ways to use technology in media and creative industries in order to increase sustainability! We see MediaTech as an ally in that work.
Do you have any intriguing insights that you want to share with us?
Fuel consumption is the biggest part of a production's carbon footprint. We need to rapidly decarbonize by reducing fuel consumption in the film and TV industries.
