IABM Young Person of the Year - Dominik Schulz width=

Dominik Schulz

A student at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, Dominik was one of the IABM-sponsored students attending IBC and his submission from that event demonstrated excellent use of the opportunity. In his report he provided a detailed account of how the industry is changing and the key developments shaping the future. He achieved this through an intensive schedule of time spent in the conference, the exhibition, the future zone and discussions with industry experts. He covered many topic areas including new image formats, camera technology, virtual and augmented reality and immersive audio. Dominik is clearly a rising star and one to watch out for in the near future.

In Dominik’s own words: “As a media technology student my visit to IBC made me just dream a little bigger about an exciting future in the broadcast and media industry”.
