D & B AUDIOTECHNIK
This corporate image film sets out to tell the story of Germany's professional sound system giant, d&b audiotechnik. Profiling the companies' various areas of focus, key personalities and its broad scope was a tall order, but also one of the most enjoyable projects I've been associated with in a long time.
But I should let d&b audiotechnik explain who they are: As the name implies, a d&b audiotechnik system is not just a loudspeaker. Nor is it merely a sum of the components: loudspeakers, amplifiers, accessories and software. Whether it is the loudspeakers, electronics, hardware accessories, or software tools, from R&D, through to prototype production, testing and finally manufacturing, d&b products are one hundred percent made in Germany. The company constantly researches and invests in state of the art production processing tools, and has a highly engaged professional workforce that is regularly trained in the most current technologies and equipment. So from the company's small beginnings of two hundred square meters it can now claim a manufacturing facility of over twenty-three thousand square meters, not to mention its ever developing top of the range, high quality sound reinforcement products.
And of course, Made in Germany.

MARTINI-KLINIK: Perfecting Optimal Treatment
This is a short corporate promo highlights the accomplishments and operations of the renowned Martini-Klinik in Hamburg, Germany.
With around 2,200 prostate cancer operations per year, the Martini-Klinik is not only the biggest Prostate Cancer Center in Germany, but in fact the number one worldwide. Compared to the biggest American university clinics, the Mayo-Clinic and the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, the Martini-Klinik performs almost double the amount of operations. This specialization on one disease enables a very high diagnostic rate and a speedy recovery as diagnosis and postoperative care is carefully monitored by chief physicians. More than 98 per cent of the patients treated would recommend treatment at the Martini-Klinik: one of the most valuable indicators of high satisfaction.
