Interview with Marc Brunke

Ever since 1992 when Marc Brunke, founder and managing director at Optocore GmbH, built his first fibre optic system and was awarded first prize for the optical snake system at the prestigious competition for young engineers in Germany, “Jugend forscht”, he has consistently pioneered new technologies and standards. A prime example of this is Optocore’s recent development of MADI over Cat5 — which extends the AES10 MADI standard by allowing twisted pair Cat5 connectivity.


No fewer than 156 Optocore devices were used to create a stable fibre backbone for signal transport when the recent COP21 (2015 Paris Climate Conference), was held at the Paris-Le Bourget Conference Centre. This ensured that audio and other data streams were delivered robustly and with minimal latency to a variety of destinations.


The new National Forum of Music (NFM) in Wroclaw, which houses an 1800-seat concert auditorium and three smaller chamber halls (ranging from 250-450 seats), will become home to all Wrocław's major orchestral and vocal ensembles and festivals. In addition to staging jazz and pop concerts, it will also double as a movie theatre.
