K Köln on Unter Sachsenhausen 10-26, in 50667 Köln | Cologne

Join us for this special Music Unchained edition on the Future of Synch, untapped opportunities, and challenges ahead for the AV industry, curated in collaboration with c/o pop convention and MusicTech Germany.

As more and more innovative applications and services, using technologies such as Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence, become integral parts of the Creative Industries, the opportunities for creative collaborations within the joint communities of the Music, MusicTech & AV Industry have never been more promising or, frankly, crucial.

With an expert round table at the heart of this session, Music Unchained seeks to facilitate the dialogue between the different protagonists of an ever-growing creative community, elaborating on ideas, best practices, new technologies and media formats, and the overall potential for collaboration.

Given the open and distributed format, it furthermore enables participants to address individual and mutual pain points, from rights management, to new business and licensing models, communication and professional lingo, to storage, distribution, funding and much more.

This session is open to all c/o pop delegates. It will be held in English with the option of selective German-English translation (questions to experts) and a live glossary. Please help is prepare for the Roundtable by completing a few quick questions:
