What about the dog in your logo?
This is Gonzo, our Jack-Russell Terrier.
He died on April 5th 2006. More about him in our short movie
What do you mean by one-to-one imaging?
Simply spoken: Personalizing photos. There are photos that
contain text, like the photo of a cinema sign. One-to-one
imaging means automatically manipulating the text in them.
So there can be many similar photos that all have different
text in them, the name of the person you give that photo
for example. With this technique we can personalize everything.
Photos, cards, calendars, brochures, books, but also videos
or CD-ROMs. Click here

Have you been doing multimedia at all times?
Yes. Today multimedia means: On one computer you can play
and interact with more than one medium - texts, images,
sounds, videos, tv. Back then the computer was used to control
different devices and systems. Slides, movie film, video,
lights, lasers. All those media had to be synchronized. With
one another, but also to live performances.
what we still do today. Among other things. See "Media
Control" for details.
What about the sky scraper on the page
The building is in Paris. We took the liberty of
using it as
an opera stage. Only virtually of course.
... (sorry, in German only)
For those who don't speak German,
here's a short summary in
The 40 floors of the office building "Coeur Défense"
are stretching into the Parisian sky, reaching the last sun
beam of the day at about of 158 m (518 feet). The windows
give insight into about a thousand offices, desks, computers.
Thousands of men and women say goodnight to their offices
and switch off their lights, leaving behind nothing but a
dark pane. So far all a very normal everyday scenario.
Then however, suddenly there is music! “Habanera“
of George Bizet’s opera "Carmen" fills
the air. As if by magic some of the windows come to light
again, ... only to go dark again seconds later. It starts
with but a few, but then a rising number of windows follow
suit. At this point even the slowest of observers has noticed
that this is not an arbitrary phenomenon. The dance of lights
going on and off follows the rhythm and tune of the music,
forming geometrical patterns, showing ticker text and animations,
and finally even the movie of an opera singer and a ballet
dancer pirouetting across the building. Whilst the building
is real, the plot is nothing but illusion. An illusion that
has a rhythm from the creative minds and stage directing
of the Cologne-based multimedia specialists von Aichberger
A building serving as a multimedia screen? What is a computer
generated illusion today, could soon become reality!
Can one entrust a company headed by
concepts and design?
Yes, you can. We have a distinctive sense of photography,
graphics, text, tyopgraphy and dramaturgy. In our team of
programmers, photographers, video operators and designers,
everybody has another core competence, but we all follow
an interdisciplinary approach. Many of our productions won
national and international awards.
