Re: Video production - German vocabulary

I've still been looking for a good translation for Technical Director, which in my old TV station covered Switcher, Audio, Graphics and playback in a live control room. Through my job search in Switzerland I've come across the term "Fernseh-Techniker" with a description that seems to fit the kind of things I've done as a Technical Director.

I know, however, that a "Fensehtechniker" is known as someone who fixes televisions--not working in television production in a control room. Does the hyphen make a difference? If I used "Fernseh-Techniker" on my CV, would it be clear enough?
