Generally the Director pushes the buttons in TV in CH.
A Ton'meister' would generally write music & mix sound as well as some recording.
A Technical Director would be responsible for the design & implication of a studio, it's not an operational position.
A 'Grafiker' generally has a degree in Graphic Design-
A Buildtechniker would white balance the cameras at the start & fiddle throughout the production so the cameras don't match at all.

What qualifications have you got & who have you worked for?
Great. None of those are exactly equivalent.

I guess I need some kind of generic term for working operational technical jobs in television. I worked in news, so we didn't do anything particularly fancy in any of those positions.

I'll PM you the names of the qualifications, TV station.
