Video production - German vocabulary

Hey all,

I'm working on translating my CV into German and could use some help with some technical terms. Hopefully someone here works in TV and knows what is commonly used in CH.

Technical Director (specifically someone who operates a Switcher)
Switcher (see attached pic)
IFB (interruptible foldback, aka that earpiece anchors wear)
Ingest (as in, ingesting video into a server)
Dubbing (like copying tape-to-tape, not voiceovers)
To screen (to show a movie)
Roll (to play tape)
Video editing/to edit video

Even if you're not in the industry, I'd appreciate any help. If you do work in TV, feel free to add any relevant vocabulary that might not be in the dictionary. Slang, I might not use in the CV, but is good to know anyway. German, Swiss German--even French would be useful for future reference.

Thank you!
