TWIST is the main business cluster active in the sector of digital audiovisual and multimedia technologies in Belgium. TWIST (Walloon Technologies for Image, Sound and Text) is the Walloon cluster of players in the audiovisual field. It groups together private companies, universities, research centres, training centres and public authorities working within the media and audiovisual sectors. A “business cluster” or enterprise network such as TWIST has a mission to boost the economic development of its members and to give structure in a general sense to the sector as a whole. Set up as a partnership between private and public players, TWIST is financed by both the private and the public sector. However TWIST, like the other Walloon centres and clusters of competence, remains a privately managed network.
Today, TWIST consists of 95 members. One thing they all have in common is a renowned knowledge of the audiovisual profession, either as a technology user (service providers) or as a developer of innovative technology.
In a general manner, TWIST addresses three types of customers: content producers (cinema, television, animation, multi-screens), television channels (development of innovative technology and service provision), and players in the communication and events fields (Internet, web, mobile, multi-screens, augmented reality, etc.)
TWIST is mainly active on three markets :
- Cinema & Animation ;
- Broadcast (development of technologies and facilities) ;
- Transmedia & Rich Media (communication, gaming, mobile applications, business intelligence, etc.).
