Experience your Digital Data
Be it through sound, speech, image or moving image - media technologies such as virtual and mixed reality, animation, streaming, volumetry, voice assistance and image recognition play the main role for us - regardless of vertical or industry.
What to see at
The Hub - the place of innovation
for media technologies
The MediaTech Hub Potsdam is the umbrella under which we bundle our community, projects and activities. They are all interconnected and interlocked - be it in our startup programmes like the MTH Accelerator or the MTH Space as well as our annual conference. With all our projects, we pursue our goal of further advancing the media tech ecosystem and shaping a more efficient, inclusive and creative future.
The MediaTech Hub Potsdam is the only digital hub in Germany with a focus on media technology. It makes media technology innovations from Potsdam visible, strengthens entrepreneurship and connects actors from the network and beyond (CONNECT!).
Developing media-tech ideas and business models (DEVELOP!) is what the MTH Accelerator encourages young founders to do. It is the sparring partner for start-up teams in the early phase. The programme was initiated by the Hasso Plattner Institute, the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF and the University of Potsdam.
In the heart of Babelsberg, the media city, we have created a space for media tech start-up teams. In the MTH Space, ideas and innovations are actually realised (DO!).
Media technologies pave the way for every business. At the MTH Conference, we bring together new ideas and business models, international perspectives and groundbreaking applications to think ahead together (THINK!).
