About checkpointmedia GmbH

In 2001 a network of people who had been working with multimedia for many years decided to join forces and found their own company - checkpointmedia AG. In autumn of that same year the new firm moved into its premises in the House of Music at Seilerstätte 30, Vienna/Austria.
 
Besides its three managing directors and proprietors, the company now consists of a internal staff of experts plus a network of project partners. checkpointmedia combines products, services and enterprises to create multimedia works of art.

Infotainment islands at the interface of business and culture, marketing and art open up entirely new perspectives on the project and its potential. checkpointmedia creates themed architecture, directs communication, offers interface services and draws from an international staging pool.
 
checkpointmedia creates and uses discrete high-tech that is never obtrusive, and it is precisely this that makes it a unique sensory experience.
 
While pursuing the target of stimulating the highest possible level of attention, identification and recollection, checkpointmedia permanently strives to develop the unknown perspective.
