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. In autumn of the same year, they moved into their new office in the Haus der Musik, 1010 Vienna. As one of the most successful representatives of "Creative Industries Vienna/Austria," checkpointmedia acts as an interface between arts/culture and the business world. Apart from the three founders and managing directors, Stefan Reiter, Stefan Unger and Virgil Widrich, the firm now consists of a large network of project partners. Since 2015 the company is named "checkpointmedia GmbH" and is located in Seilerstätte 13, 1010 Vienna, Austria.
