Training of experts for the conception, production, development and management of complex multimedia applications in the media informatics Master.
KOBU Agency / Unsplashtraining objectiveA number of information technology innovations have fundamentally changed communication in modern societies in recent years:Professional production technology was able to spread widely due to the extremely low prices. High-quality single lens reflex and system cameras with 4K resolution, special systems such as 360 degree cameras, powerful drones and computer graphics and post-production systems now enable professional video production on a comparatively low budget, as was only possible a few years ago in cinema and television productions.
New generations of end devices such as smartphones with the highest audiovisual playback quality as well as VR and AR glasses have resulted in immersive media such as 360 degree and stereo videos from being a niche existence to standard media, especially among younger social classes.
The attractive interaction possibilities with new end devices have not only promoted the spread of computer games. The entire network-based multimedia communication is developing massively through the inclusion of complex playful elements in directions such as edutainment and infotainment.
The television broadcasters' monopoly on the distribution of audiovisual information has been broken. Today, it is mainly distributed via the Internet and mobile radio channels. Every company, every institution and many private individuals distribute specially produced audiovisual interactive media with more or less great effort.These developments have a massive impact on current forms of communication in all areas of society such as entertainment, marketing and the transfer of knowledge and information. All companies and institutions have to face these challenges with extensive redesign and redesign of their offers and services. This leads to extensive areas of application by appropriately trained academics.
In the Applied Media Informatics (Master of Science) course, experts are trained in the design, production, development and management of relevant media and applications.Type of study: Full time Duration of study: 4 semesters Lecture language: German Graduation: Master of Science ECTS: 120 next start of studies: in the winter or summer semester Application deadline: on July 15th or January 15thstudy courseAfter completing the compulsory area, in which the advanced basics for these areas of application are conveyed, the students can deepen their skills in one of the following profile lines, depending on their inclination. In all three profile lines there are extensive opportunities to collaborate in corresponding research and transfer projects.Media Informatics Master: Profile Line "Media Production" In this profile line, the competencies of media production are deepened, especially with regard to immersive media, usability and media management aspects.Media Informatics Master: Profile Line "Interactive Systems and Signal Processing"In this profile line, mainly technical competences such as interaction and signal processing and corresponding software development are deepened.Media Informatics Master: Profile Line "Business Informatics"Mainly the economic implications, the procedural models in the development and management of new services and the economic evaluation of these current developments are discussed here.Admission requirementsThe admission requirements for the Media Informatics Master are fulfilled by those who pass the final examination for the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Engineering or Diploma at a university, comprehensive college or university within the scope of the Higher Education Framework Act with a good final grade in a course with a minimum share of 50 percent of IT or business informatics events ( Grade 2.5).
