For compact quantizable Kähler manifolds the Berezin-Toeplitz quantization schemes, both operator and deformation quantization (star product) are reviewed. The treatment includes Berezin’s covariant symbols and the Berezin transform. The general compact quantizable case was done by Bordemann–Meinrenken–Schlichenmaier, Schlichenmaier, and Karabegov–Schlichenmaier. For star products on Kähler manifolds, separation of variables, or equivalently star product of (anti-) Wick type, is a crucial property. As canonically defined star products the Berezin-Toeplitz, Berezin, and the geometric quantization are treated. It turns out that all three are equivalent, but different.
