Welcome to Krautscheid Medientechnik

We are a professional software development, show designing and operating company. Based near Cologne / Germany we work for both local and international clients.

Our goal is it to provide a range of Information Technology services in the areas of software system architecture, freelance programming and lighting- or video operating. Examples of the things we do are:

  • Design and build custom software (macOS, iOS, Linux an Windows)
  • Provide freelance programming and management support for software projects
  • Offer technical consulting services
  • Design and operate live shows both on the video and lighting side


Most of our software development work is done in Node.js. But we also like Objective-C, Swift, PHP, LUA, C++ and SQL.

For doing shows we prefer SAMSC Catalyst Media Server in combination with High End Systems Hog 4 or MA Lighting GrandMA2. Of course other Media Servers (Avolites Ai, PRG M-Box and Pandoras Box) will be operated as well.


Since 1998 we have worked for many national and international clients in the car, television, music and corporate show industry. 

What can we do for you?

We are available for hire on a consulting basis, as a technology consultant to help in building software solutions and as a designer and operator for shows, such as corporate events, music or television shows. Our approach to work is open, honest and direct with a can-do attitude and a keen eye on our customer’s return on their investment.

What we don’t do

If you have a software project that you thought you’d save money on by farming out the development to a cheap off-shore outfit, keep it to yourself. It’s now your headache. We won’t retrofit, reverse engineer or otherwise hack the code of a programmer who gets paid $13/hr because that’s what you think they’re worth.
