The MediaTech Hub Potsdam is a knowledge pool for players in the media technology, film, virtual and mixed reality, digital engineering, data visualisation, edutainment,
gamification, science and interface branches – an open community for and by those who get involved in the network.
Potsdam is the ideal location for this. The film and media industry has been present here for over 100 years, and famous directors such as Steven Spielberg, Werner Herzog and
Quentin Tarantino have shot and produced their blockbusters and series here. Alongside market leaders and innovators such as Studio Babelsberg, UFA and the film school, technology companies and
research facilities have also moved to the area. The Hasso Plattner Institute, a centre of excellence for IT systems engineering, sits alongside SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, the Volkswagen Design
Center and the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications.
