Neumann&Müller Veranstaltungstechnik has announced that its business units – System Integration, Digital Media, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) – are each to be given a separate market presence.
The idea is to enable the System Integration, Digital Media, and ICT units to sharpen the focus on their individual service portfolios in presentations to clients.
“In addition to the traditional fields of event technology – audio, lighting, video, rigging, staging and conferencing – the last few years have seen the emergence of areas with their own particular domains, which need a separate communications strategy,” said N&M managing director Alex Ostermaier.
“System Integration” provides turnkey implementation of semi-permanent and permanent installation projects globally. Conceptual design, implementation and operation of high-quality media technology solutions are formed into an overall package in close partnership with the client. Reference projects include various thematic and national pavilions for EXPO 2017 in Astana, the VW pavilion at the Olympic Games in Sochi, the Deutsche Haus at a whole series of Olympic Games, the “Letters to Andy Warhol” and “David Bowie” international travelling exhibitions as well as the Mercedes flagship store in Moscow.
In 2006, N&M established its first studio for audio-visual content production in Munich. In the years that followed, further in-house studios were set up in Dresden and Hamburg. Initially the focus was on motion design, but interactive applications were then continuously added to the portfolio. Today, the interdisciplinary team from “Neumann&Müller digital media” produces motion design plus interactive experiences for corporate and public events, congresses, trade fairs, permanent installations and exhibitions. At its Munich site, N&M offers its clients the opportunity of visiting the “MediaLab” interactive experience facility, where visitors can immerse themselves in the world of media production and utilise the lab as a source of inspiration for their events.
Information and Communications Technology
The increasingly complex nature of the technology deployed at events requires high-performance IT network structures. “Information and Communications Technology” is significant for the set up and running of live events, because networks are the backbone of all the equipment used.
N&M has now assembled an autonomous team for project-related IT. Its job is to advise project managers and give them support regarding IT issues throughout the entire project. From their base at the new “Network Operations Center” in Hanover, they can provide seven-day-a-week support for the set-up and running of N&M IT infrastructure.
